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.

TRAVEL & STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

with Matt Krumins Photography

TAKE THAN A PICTURE MAKE A STORY

Travel and Street photography isn’t all about settings and theory, it’s about being confident enough with your camera that you don’t miss the moment. This workshop really focuses on being creative and showing people the world around them in ways they have never seen before. It’s about sparking imaginations, transporting people to another place and capturing the atmosphere rather than just pictures of ‘things’. This street & travel photography workshop is for anyone who loves taking photos and sharing stories, be it of their travels abroad or right here at home!

SHUTTER & APERTURE

Take control of your settings with Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority making your camera more responsive than ever whilst maintaining creative control.

SEE WHAT OTHERS DON'T

Anyone can take an incredible photo of an incredible scene. This workshop gives you the tools you need to build a composition anytime, anywhere, empowering you to tell your story.

PERSPECTIVE & COMPOSITION

Discover the possibilities when you master lens compression and perspective in your compositions. Turn everyday photos into dynamic photos that make people stop and look.

$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. SETTINGS RECAP
Before we begin 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. COMPOSITION & PERSPECTIVE
Almost to prove that photography is more than just settings and rules we jump straight into a session working on composition. We look at lens compression as well as my process for building compositions that speak the story you want to tell.
4. SHUTTER & APERTURE PRIORITY
Next up we start moving up into the city alleyways looking at shutter and aperture priority mode and applying them practically to help you bring creative flare to your shots.
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. If you have a prime lens bring it along too :-)

Check the weather forecast before the workshop in case there is a chance of light showers, these can be amazing for our photos but terrible for frizzy hair and soggy clothing.

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. That said, we are working on semi-manual settings in this workshop so if you are brand new to your camera you might want to check out my Beginner Photography Workshop to get up and running first!

Awesome! In travel & street photography rain is actually an incredible thing giving us amazing reflections to use in our photographs. That said, if we are experiencing significant rain we will postpone our workshop by offering a voucher code for you to re-book on a workshop at your convenience! 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!

Your 3 hour walking travel & street photography workshop has a limit 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!
