Matt Krumins Photography

Nov 16th Update:

Firstly just a huge thank-you to everyone who has done the right thing over the past difficult months and a massive thank you to those who have supported my  business through my online offerings. Private and most group workshop are resuming over Nov/Dec with group sizes increasing from max 4 in Nov to max 6 in Dec.

 Safety approach during last reopening (for reference):

  • Group sizes lowered to a maximum of 6 participants (group size of 7 including myself).
  • Hand Sanitiser available at all times
  • Workshops locations are modified to avoid crowded areas.
  • Participants are actively asked to social distance in our safety briefing at the start of our workshop with reminders during our workshop if I believe distances are being breached.
  • Participants who have even mild cold or flu symptoms are not to attend. To assist with this I have removed the requirement for 7 days notice to reschedule to ensure you are not penalised for making the right judgement call to not attend.
  • Masks need to be worn at all times in accordance with Victorian Government recommendations.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss how I am handling these measures please contact me on 0402 812 805.

MELBOURNE BY NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

with Matt Krumins Photography

CAPTURE THE BIG CITY LIGHTS

Night photography poses a unique set of challenges but it doesn’t have to be difficult! My Melbourne by Night photography workshop busts the technical jargon out of the picture leaving you to express your creativity and get great low light cityscape shots every time. We delve into composition, quick tips for instant improvement and break down the complex settings that are holding your photography back all whilst capturing stunning imagery of Melbourne and it’s glowing lights!

SHUTTER & APERTURE

Wrap your head around how your settings interact, giving you endless possibilities with your night photography. Capture both ultra sharp skylines and beautiful light trails.

BUILD DRAMATIC COMPOSITIONS

Learn my process for pulling together dramatic compositions using simple steps that anyone can achieve.

UNLEASH YOUR CREATIVITY

Break the mould and get an insight into rarely seen photography techniques that open up a whole new world of creativity.

WORKSHOP DETAILS

Small groups to keep things personal
$119.95 inc GST
Meet under the clocks at Flinders Street

ALL BRANDS ALL MODELS

Do you want a personalised approach specific to your camera? You’ve found it. With years of experience and thousands of workshop participants you’d be hard pressed to find a camera brand or model that I don’t know my way around.

WORKSHOP PLAN

1. MEET & GREET
We meet at the top of the stairs under the Flinders clocks before we have a chat and get to know your experience level, goals and the type of images you love. This allows me to personalise our workshop content to meet your needs.
2. SETINGS RECAP
Before jumping into the night components of the course, we cover off the basics to make sure we are all on the same page. This gives newer photographers an opportunity to catch up and more experienced photographers to hear a different approach or simply a quick refresher.
3. SHOOTING
Once you are comfortable with the basics our night photography begins. This workshop sees us covering off 4 main night styles where we talk through the technique, have time for supervised practice and then a little extra time to move around the location independently to pull it all together.
5. SUPPORT
Following our workshop you will be invited to join our exclusive 'Matt's Mob' Facebook support group. This is probably the friendliest photography group on the internet with hundreds of like-minded people all wanting to keep the fun in photography.

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

You’ll need a camera with access to some manual settings for this workshop as the techniques we cover rely heavily on Aperture & Shutter Priority mode. This doesn’t mean you need to know how to use these modes just yet, we just need access to them for the workshop. 

Please make sure you have a fully charged battery and space on your memory card. 

I always recommend brining a range of lenses if you have them (both wide/telephoto) as they they can be key to achieving interesting compositions.

You will need a tripod for this workshop. If you don’t have one I can arrange a loan tripod for you but you must contact me in advance.

A Remote shutter release is not critical for this workshop but if you have one, bring it along.

It can be cold in Melbourne at night so please dress appropriately and check the weather forecast before the workshop in case there is a chance of light showers.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

In photography we never stop learning, so whether you are an enthusiast photographer or or a complete beginner, my small course size will give you plenty of one-on-one attention to ensure new ideas and concepts can be tailored to your experience level.

Awesome! In night photography rain is actually an incredible thing giving us amazing reflections to use in our photographs. If we have light showers or a bit of drizzle we will be out there making the most of it however if we have sustained rain re-booking vouchers will be issued so you can rebook on a date at your convenience.

That said, I always recommend bringing a waterproof jacket as even on a sunny day Melbourne can show off it’s unique ability to change on a dime!

Your Melbourne by Night photography workshop is limited to a very small group giving you plenty of one-on-one instruction as well as personal attention relevant to your camera brand and model.

Also, I believe that photography concepts take practice and time so at the conclusion of your workshop you will be invited to an exclusive online support group where you can continue to grow your photography alongside other workshop participants!

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

"Thanks to Matt Krumins, I finally learnt the settings needed and gained the know how to capture the night shots of our city I was so eager to get. Previously, I was frustrated trying to self teach with google haha... I then completed the night time photography workshop. It was so much fun in a collaborative group and Matt was so informative, down to earth, humorous and adaptive/understanding with beginners... Highly recommended and I look forward to completing further workshops so I can grow my desire to be a hobby photographer."
