Matt Krumins Photography

At Matt Krumins Photography I take the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously. To ensure everyones safety and comfort on workshops I have imposed the following:

  • Group sizes lowered to a maximum of 4 participants (group size of 5 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.

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

Over the years many people have requested a portrait workshops but it never sat well with me. Most of the time, those requesting these sessions were going to be photographing people in public, whilst travelling, or in high pressure environments and so a class with a model just didn’t feel like it would fit the bill. This workshop on the other hand is designed to help you cope with real world situations, building your confidence to quickly assess your subject matter and get the shot even when you aren’t in control of the situation. We cover Aperture priority mode, exposure, black & white photography as well as confidence building exercises using un-rehearsed interactions with street performers and buskers to capture real world portraits. We start our session around Flinders St where we cover off the settings component of the workshop using each other as stand-in subjects. From here we start our walk through the streets of Melbourne putting the theory into practice with exercises in confidence building as well as constant feedback and support. Best of all this photography workshop is limited to a small team of just 6 giving so there is plenty of personalised attention and support to ensure no-one is overwhelmed.

Each participant is required to bring along $10 in gold coins to ensure that all buskers and performers photographed are fairly compensated.

This exclusive small-group workshop is your chance to break down the barriers that stop you from getting the perfect people shots and capturing moments as they happen.

Your 3 hour walking Real World Portraits photography workshop has a limit of just 6 people 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!

Melbourne can be a funny place when it comes to weather so regardless of the forecast I always recommend bringing a waterproof jacket as even on a sunny day Melbourne can show it’s unique ability to change on a dime!

Buskers & people tend to retreat for cover when it rains or even looks like rain so if we do have a less-than-ideal forecast you will be invited to book onto a different workshop date that suits your schedule. I do my best to give you as much notice as possible but changes the morning of the workshop do occasionally happen.

A lot of my workshops are about how to see things rather than purely looking at the camera itself, so what you really need is a camera! That’s it! A longer zoom (telephoto lens) will definitely help you get closer shots than a standard zoom but it’s not essential to learn the basics.

If you’re just starting out this is the perfect time to get to know the ins and outs of your new camera and get off Auto mode without getting into the technical stuff.

Real World Portraits do not require any special equipment however I do recommend a camera that has access to Aperture Priority Mode and if you have a selection of lenses for your camera bring them along. In this workshop we really do explore the use of both wide angle lenses and longer telephoto lenses in portrait environments but don’t stress if you only have one lens you’ll not miss anything!
