MELBOURNE BY NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

LEVEL: BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE | DURATION: 2hr | COST: $119.95 inc GST


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!

My Melbourne by Night workshop is full of stories and relatable analogies to break down big challenges into bite-sized pieces and is suitable for all camera makes and models. With a small group of just 6 people there is plenty of one-on-one time and my approach is to help you to understand and remember the 'why' behind the concepts so that you are able to problem solve independently in the future.

I had previously attended Matt’s Travel and Street photography and Real world portraits workshops both of which were hugely beneficial! The most recent addition was a 3 hour 1 on 1 workshop with Matt to recap and cover off ideas for an upcoming trip to Sri Lanka. Matt is incredibly patient and a great teacher and has an ability to be able to explain complex explanations in a way that is easily relatable and you will remember.The 1 on 1 workshop allowed me to ask as many questions as possible. I also had the opportunity to explore filters and Speed lighting which I had never even considered before.Would highly recommend Matt’s workshops he goes above and beyond for each and every one of his students !

Your a genius Matt! Your enthusiasm for your chosen lifestyle is to be commended. I had a great time on Friday learning how to further improve my camera skills, taking good photos and meeting new friends. I especially enjoyed the time where you sat with the group explaining the finer points of photography before putting it all into practice. And to all of the older generation that might get the opportunity to read this feedback"Old age is just a barrier, not an obstacle." Looking forward to our next adventure Matt!

I had an absolutely fantastic afternoon. I felt reenergised and inspired to enjoy my photography again after being stuck in a rut. Matt is a fabulous teacher, full of enthusiasm for his craft and very professional. I think the note cards that he gives out at his workshops are the best I have seen, short and concise. I have done many photography workshops and I would put my one with Matt at one of the best. Infact I want to do another!

I attended the Street and Travel photography course run by Matt as a gift from my children. I have been a keen amateur photographer from my teens and learnt lots of new things from Matt - including composition techniques and technical aspects of my camera . Matt has a great style ensuring concepts were easily understood and providing practical tips to improve my photography. The group size is small enough (we had 5 of the 6 normal class size) to receive one on one attention and also make connections with like minded people. The locations were well chosen and time frame perfect. Highly recommended.

The beginners workshop at the Zoo was fantastic. Matt is great at breaking things down and helping you understand ‘how and where' to start with your camera. Matt provides great analogies along the way and has an easy and approachable manner. Definitely time well spent and the perfect introduction. Thanks Matt – will definitely be looking at workshops in the future after lots more practice!

Matt's workshop was excellent, set in the wonderful surrounds of Melbourne Zoo. Matt patiently assisted me to find some confidence in moving from 'Auto' and experimenting with 'Program'.

My concerns about being a novice were swept away in a few minutes. I learned things from Matt in the first 15 mins to make a significant difference to how I will approach taking photos on my next trip. I know how to work and understand my camera so much more effectively. Also given many tips on choosing an artistic perspective. Matt also adjusted my settings to alleviate some challenges I have been having....so no more "mum" photos for me!

I completed a one-to-one workshop with Matt. Totally tailored to my own goals and camera. Matt is easy to build a rapport with and great at explaining some technical terms and techniques without using fancy words. Matt provided some tip sheets and small laminated cards to help me remember everything and he also created a document tailored to my camera as a great reminder of the functions. It’s been almost a month since I had my workshop and I love the photos I have been taking. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Matt and I look forward to joining some more workshops when I have a bit more free time.

I attended the beginners course at Melb Zoo. I found the course very informative for the following reasons:> Matt has a way of explaining technical jargon in layman’s terms. > Matt breaks down the course into bite size chunks in a very logical order. > well structured so that you can understand key components of any camera such that when you go out and take pics you apply what you have just learned and maximise your cameras settings > Matt spends one on one time with participants in a small group to answer all your questions in full. > gives you instant feedback on your photos so that you can take that pic again with better knowledge 5 out of 5 stars. Great course. I’ll definitely recommend Matt’s course to my friends and family.

It was my first workshop with Matt. The advanced wildlife workshop yesterday. Well I must say a huge Thank you to you Matt. I learned heaps. Being my first trial of my 100-400 lens. Wow!!! Not only did Matt know my camera and the lens, he gave me such great tips of how to use it converting my tripod to a monopod. Lots of great tips. Mostly shooting in A priority. Was great. I think I have some good pics. Will put it up on his group site when I get to them. Looking forward to my next workshop with him. Highly recommend this for anyone looking to learn about wildlife. He was patient and each of us got a lot of his attention. The only downside, the time flew by. Wish it was longer.

I attended Matts beginners Lightroom workshop on Tuesday night with a fair bit of trepidation not really knowing what to expect. Matt went though all the techniques of Lightroom without any tech jargon. Matt is great at explaining everything in plain english which is really good. I now have a better understanding of Lightroom and feel I can now start editing my photos.I highly recommend this workshop with Matt.

What an amazing teacher! I did the Advanced Wildlife Photography Workshop at the Zoo with Matt Krumins and because he makes learning fun, the instructions stayed with me. We had a small group, but I believe that even it it was a large group Matt would find the time to come and give each of us that individual instruction we needed. Matt used 'layman's terms' and gave us options (there was no 'you must use') - the time just went so fast! Thank you for sharing your energy, skills, knowledge and experience.

I had a 3hr private workshop with Matt. It was great to have the workshop at the location where I do most of my client's photography work. We could discuss the environment's pros and cons and how I can create some control in my working environment. Matt's workshop enabled me to develop my beginner skills and address specific areas that were a bit fuzzy and needed clarifying! Matt also introduced to me helpful tools, notes and the opportunity to have a go at using an off-camera flash which was awesome. Highly recommend Matt! He is a wonderful teacher which makes a world of difference! Thanks Matt!

All backed up with printed notes for the forgetful ones like me. Totally recommended.

I have now completed two Lightroom workshops with Matt. These were the Beginners Lightroom Workshop (done online) and recently the Advanced Lightroom Workshop (completed as a 3-hour classroom session). Matt is a very good teacher and his knowledge of Lightroom is really excellent.The classroom workshop involved a small group, and this ensured more than adequate one-on-one time. If you have decided to make the leap into Lightroom like I have done then I would strongly recommend these two Lightroom courses with Matt.

Last night I attended the Introduction course for Lightroom. In spite of the fact that I was using a my wife's Mac which was a pain in the butt for me, I found the course to be first class. Matt was patient and most helpful with a klutz like me. Having worked on PCs for forty years having to do the tutorial on a Mac stretched my patience. I have had Lightroom on my PC for over twelve months and I wish I had done the course when I first loaded it onto the the PC. I intend to do follow up courses with Matt as other family members have had done photography classes with great success.😄

I attended a beginners Lightroom workshop with Matt. Matt explained the basics of Lightroom in a relaxed and highly informative manner. Any doubts I had that this was the right program were dispelled. During the hands on excercises he was quickly able to clarify any dificulties and left me with confidence that I could start to make some great pictures. I would strongly recommend any Lightroom novices to attend Matt's workshop!

The night photography workshop was great, Matt is very able to connect to each of the group members, give clear advice and instructions, and then let you do the job yourself. A lot of inspiration and fun !

Had a great time with a nice small group roaming the alleyways of Melbourne. Matt took the time to go through the basics in detail and built on that nicely. Great of him to check with each person that they understood and knew how to help with each camera. Definitely recommend his courses to help build your skills!

Had my first photography workshop with Matt last night and it was excellent! His approachable and easy-going personality makes you feel comfortable to ask for help and advice on how to improve your photography. He simplifies more tricky/detailed photography terms with the use of memorable metaphors and analogies, which gives you the ability to learn fast and reutilise the techniques in the future. I highly recommend attending his workshops whether you are at a beginner, intermediate or advanced level.

Just completed the night time photography course and absolutely loved it! Matt is a walking book of knowledge on photography .As a novice he was able to provide me easy to follow instructions to get the results I wanted. I now have the confidence to use different functions and settings, rather than being the Queen of auto .Thanks Matt! Highly recommend to photographers of any experience levels

I went along to the Wednesday morning Zoo workshop with Matt and it was fantastic. I learnt more in that three hours than I have reading my instruction manual. It also gave me the confidence to try other programs on my camera. Matt was always happy to answer questions and to give advice which I really appreciated. I intend to go along to a couple more of his workshops. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Matt to anybody who is wanting to learn more about their camera. Thank you Matt for such a fun and interesting day.

Was a really great experience.

I was very happy with how the photos came out and I will continue to use what I learned.

I joined Matt’s beginners photography class at the Melbourne zoo. I had recently gotten a new camera and was wanting to learn about the cameras basic functions. The class has taught me much more than basic functions and I now feel very confident in using my camera. Matt explains everything in a very simple way and all instructions were very easy to apply. It was a fun day and enjoyed it immensely. I look forward to booking more courses with Matt to learn more about using my camera! Highly recommend!

I would like to recommend Matt Krumins Photography and i am sure words not enough to make it . He is very talented and experienced photographer and his teaching skills and his patient on what he is demonstrating to any level is something so unique. 5/5 and 100% he is a good teacher and human being and treating everyone with respect and giving his full effort to make others dreams come true. He is giving very quick response. sometimes i realised even in the midnight or in between some of his events he is replying.I am so much appreciated your work and looking forward to join 2019 workshops and wishing you very Good Luck !

Just completed a Beginner Zoo workshop this morning with Matt. He put me onto Program mode, which I have never considered before. Made capturing that moment faster and with a quick change to the EV the light reading was spot on. A friendly and personable teacher with clear communication skills and a good sense of humour. He demystified all the technical jargon and processes so that we could get onto the pleasure and joy of taking more successful photos.

I have done 2 workshops with Matt, about to do a third, he is so very generous with his knowledge, and so good at explaining. He goes to great lengths to make sure you "get it"! I ran in to Him when he was leading another workshop, he took the time to say Hi and said to put the hood on my lens! he was right!!!! If you have a question, send him a message, he is always happy to help. I cant recommend matt and his courses highly enough, the very first course i did, the beginner at the Zoo one, i switched from Auto to manual modes and ive never once had to switch back!! I learned so much! cheers

I've done both the Travel and Street Photography and the Real World Portraits workshops. They are both very good and different enough that its well worth doing both. Travel and Street has a bit more emphasis on camera settings and some techniques and composition whilst Portraits is much more about composition and choosing subjects. I thoroughly enjoyed both and learnt a lot.

Absolutely, have done three workshops with him now. A wild life one where we had fun stalking the animals, a light room workshop, great start up info, so glad I went before going to far too far down that track and a street photography workshop. I was stepping outside my comfort zone for that one and Matt provided me some challenges on perspective and how we see things : )

I've been to three of Matts workshop now and they have all been great. Started with a wildlife workshop where we practised the theory on the animals. Lots of laughs and whoops I missed it ... practice : ) Then a light shop workshop, really great start up info, very glad I went before going to far down the lightroom track, then lastly street photography. I wanted to challenge myself and step outside of my comfort zone and Matt sure did provide some challenges for me but also helped me to see things in a different way. Totally worth while and highly recommended. Go on have a go

I cannot rate these workshops highly enough!I have now done 3 of Matt's workshops and also the Intro and Advanced Lightroom. There's a reason I keep coming back! Matt is incredibly patient and explains technical stuff in an easy to understand manner with great analogies. I would highly recommend anyone who is vaguely interested in learning a bit more about how to get more out of your camera and photography skills to book into a workshop. You won't be disappointed. The only disappointing thing for me is the time goes too fast! Looking forward to booking into more of these workshops.

I’ve now attended the Night photography and Travel and street photography workshop with Matt. Starting out with my Nikon DSLR camera as a beginner, Matt quickly informed me how to stop using auto and start exploring manual, shutter and aperture priority. His workshops are informative, hands on and a lot of fun. With a limit of 6 people in these workshops, it was nice to get some one on one time with Matt to ask questions and review photos. I highly recommend Matt Krumins photography. I can’t wait to book in for another one of this amazing workshops.

I joined Matt this morning in the Melbourne sunshine for a 3 hr one-on-one session learning techniques to improve my photography. As someone new to photography, Matt paced the session perfectly with information and practice on the street. It was an excellent no fuss session backed with a very professional operation complete by booklets, laminated cheat cards and online tutorials. I will certainly have to make use of Matt’s knowledge and skills over the next few years. An enjoyable morning.

I spent a few hours with Matt going over how to use Program, Aperture and Shutter modes; histogram and how to read it; focus options on camera; generally getting to know my camera and functions better. He’s a great teacher - listening skills, reflective comment, manages expectations of what can be achieved in a session, summarises what we’ve covered. Learnt a lot and appreciated him taking notes which he forwarded post session. Hard to find a photographer with such proficiency in both the technical as well as teaching ability.

Braving the cold and an early start was well worth it! Matt took us to Cape Schanck for a Sunrise shoot and after that we drove over to Bridgewater Bay to practise long exposure. What an awesome day!

He takes time to explain technical stuff and can relate to any skill level. This was my second course and I will not be stopping here .....

My wife purchased me Matts street photography course, which I attended yesterday. Prior to the course I read up on aperature vs shutter speed and ISO. I have struggled in the past with these settings and have tended to revert back to the automatic and program settings. Matt well covered this in the course yesterday along with exposure control , giving me more confidence with these settings. Framing and photographing from different angles was also covered, opening my eyes to different options and vastly different outcomes.In summary a great course, but what I now need to do is to get out and make use of the knowledge gained and to have more confidence with the settings.Once i do this i will be signing up for further courses.And lastly Matts easy going attitude and willingness to answer what must seem like quite basic questions from me made the course all the more enjoyable. Thanks matt.

I had a one-on-one photography workshop with Matt at the Melbourne Zoo today and it was brilliant. Coming into it I had a little bit of photography knowledge but Matt explained concepts in a way that tied them together and made sense without talking down. Most importantly his advice was practical and allowed me to take noticeably better photos without overwhelming me with unnecessary detail. I’m also really happy with the prepared materials and the electronic copy of the stuff Matt sketched out on the day - this will be a great reminder of all the concepts we covered. Last but not least I had a lot of fun, would love to do another one and highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their photography.

Training with Matt has improved my photography skills like a turbo engine. I spent too long reading books... Matt gets you learning and thinking like a photographer. The workshops are a invaluable experience for photographers of any level.

I first learned of Matt about a year ago and he has been an absolute godsend to me. I'm a 60 something year old who loves photography. I had just bought a Nikon D7200 and was just using it in Auto mode. Twelve months down the track I am comfortably using the camera in Manual mode and when it is all explained to you properly, as Matt does, it is just so easy. I've also had the pleasure of doing a number of workshops with Matt [ I would like to have done more but I'm just pressed for time] and they have been absolutely rewarding. The Seascapes workshop was just fantastic. We learnt to use filters properly and Matt supplied us with a set of Lee filters to use for the day. The other advantage is Matt knows some great locations and we all came back with some great images. The huge advantage is that numbers are limited [there was only three of us on this workshop] and this allowed Matt plenty of time to work with us one on one. Just when I thought the experience could not get better I have just completed the Astro Photography Workshop and the weekend was amazing. I had previously done a workshop with another photographer which was really just a waste of money. Matt's workshop was just unbelievable and we all came away with some magnificent photographs and I look at mine and I just can't believe I was able to get those results. I've also done some one on one stuff with Matt and it is just so worth the money. The other advantage of doing one of these workshops is that you become part of the Matt Krummins Photography family with continued support via his private Facebook Group. Actually last night I was after some help and Matt himself replied within minutes. This week I did a Lightroom Course with Matt and WOW!!!!! There were 5 other people there who had obviously been using LR for a while but they just couldn't believe what they got out of this workshop, most importantly Matt showed us how to catalogue our photos properly and it was just great. We also touched on some simple edits and WOW AGAIN! I'm now very much looking forward to doing the Advanced LR Workshop but most importantly I am confident of tackling it. I always thought LR was so complicated but after the workshop the other night I'm ready to tackle anything! If you're in to photography and you want to take your art to a higher level look in to Matt and his services, I couldn't recommend it higher. I may have waffled a little but I'm just so pleased that I came across Matt and his services and I really want to spread the word because I know what he's done with me and I'd like more and more people to achieve the same. I used to be afraid of my camera but now I'm completely confident with all facets of it's operation. Thanks Matt and keep up the great work!

Hoping to do another workshop in the future and very much looking forward to utilising and developing the skills we learnt !Naoise and Jeevan

Four workshops completed with Matt and each time i come away with a smile on my face and with more knowledge and confidence. My photos have improved tenfold with Matt's assistance. Matt's style is the attraction, great simple analogues, step by step processes, and a supportive and cheerful method to reinforce the message. My highest recommendation, oh and best of all, a lot of fun.

My family purchased a voucher for me to attend a personal photography course with Matt. I cannot thank Matt enough, he explained ISO, Fstop, Lighting etc, in a language that finally made sense to me. I have been taking photo's for sometime now and had given up. This lesson has inspired me to pick my camera up again, the laminated cards Matt also provided, with a quick reference, are a great tool for me. I cannot wait to attend another course of Matt's and would highly encourage anyone thinking of attending a course to book it, you will not regret it!

I recently participated in a Melbourne night photography class with Matt and enjoyed every moment. Matt is a wealth of information who is interested in making sure you understand the principles you are being taught, all while getting some some great photos and having fun! I can't wait for an excuse to go back to Melbourne and do another class.

I participated in Matt’s Zoo workshop on Saturday morning. I have done a few of Matt’s workshops and always feel welcomed. Matts small groups encourage an inclusive friendly group and he ensures everyone gets help and learns. I have noticed Matt is able to answer everyone’s questions and has great knowledge about all cameras. Highly recommended

The travel and street workshop was the first of Matt's workshops that I have completed. I found it to be a very valuable experience, with Matt providing useful suggestions on composition, camera settings and 'motion capture'. Matt is a very capable instructor with an ability to simply and clearly explain and demonstrate photographic concepts.

Updating my review - I recently attended Matt's bootcamp in Bright and what a great 5 days it was. So relaxing to learn in this forum as Matt is funny, full of knowledge and really has a way of communicating that makes the complex easier to understand. Will continue to be my "go to" place to learn.I have now done 3 of Matt's courses and found excellent value in all of them. My first was seascapes, then histograms and Melbourne by Night. Matt has a way of breaking information down into bite sized chunks and delivers it in a way that it seems to really stick. He finds time for everyone and so I come away feeling I have had great individual attention as well as learning from what advice he has given others. We also covered completely different skills and approaches in each class. Highly recommend him.

I’ve just returned from spending an amazing week in Bright completing Matt’s Photography Bootcamp. I signed up to go to push myself outside my comfort zone with my photography and Matt delivered time and time again. We had a small group with various camera’s and skill levels. Matt led us through theory, practical demonstrations, editing and lots and lots of discussions on many varying subjects over the week. The days were long but so fulfilling I can’t emphasise how much I learnt and Matt’s patience and ability to relate to us all (and our camera’s) was enlightening.I can’t recommend how much you can learn from Matt and am looking forward to expanding my skills under Matt’s wonderful tutelage.5 star +++++++

I have just had the pleasure of spending the last week in Bright with Matt and a group of great people, I have always wanted to visit Bright in Autumn and it did not disappoint.The boot camp didn’t disappoint either, the knowledge and experiences that Matt shared with us along with his ability to explain things to us in ways that people of different knowledge levels could easily understand and work with was exceptional. His patience, commitment and enthusiasm is second to none.I would recommend Matt’s workshops and boot camps to anyone and everyone no matter what your level of experience. If you have a camera and enjoy using it get onto one of these workshops, you will not be disappointed.

Attended Matt’s zoo workshop yesterday, having little to no idea what to do with my camera outside of “auto” mode. Left feeling much more comfortable changing exposure settings, and knowing how to make my photos appear clearer and warmer, and just, well, better! Matt has a great approach to teaching, and I’m already signed up for another workshop with him next week!

Had my first photography class with Matt last night capturing the city by night. What an amazing and wonderful learning experience it was. For the first time ever, using my camera in manual settings actually made sense. Matt is incredibly talented in imparting knowledge on something he is passionate about and does it in an extremely patient and friendly manner. Came home on a high and booked another 2 classes. Hope to eventually attend all his workshops.

I booked Matt for a private photography lesson to help us out at work with bringing our photography in house. I can’t speak highly enough of Matt and all his help, from sourcing the right equipment right through to the practical theory, setting up our equipment and the actual taking of the photos we were looking to produce. I love the fact that he is also available to answer any questions I have going forward after the workshop - best service ever!

I did Matt's zoo workshop over the weekend and I have learnt so much within those 3 hours. 'If you have learnt at least 3 things in one day, then it's a good day!' And sure enough with Matt's help and guidance I learnt many more than 3. Hes very patient and willing to help everybody no matter how silly the question may sound. I had a great day at the zoo, and will most definitely be booking another workshop!

I was on Matt's first "Real World Portrait Photography" workshop! It started on the banks of the Yarra with a super little introduction -- some 'lite' theory and a few rehearsals with our cameras, before we came to the real-life buskers. Not only did we learn photographic techniques but also street-photography-etiquette! I had the opportunity to try out so many things with my camera that I wouldn't have thought of beforehand. I feel so much better equipped for my next overseas trip!"

He’s teaching skills are very clear and he is patient also so friendly and has such a positive attitude. Along with his knowledge of how the animals will behave it makes a great day out to get some really good shots. I would recommend this to anyone and it would make a great gift. After the class I stayed at the zoo and had some lunch and time to myself.

A really beneficial experience and Matt was able to clearly explain how a camera sees images to differently to us. I can now feel far more comfortable using our camera and playing with the settings that I had no idea about prior to Matt's training. The notes Matt provides along the way are great and continue to be an invaluable reference.

As visitors to Melbourne we attended 3 of Matts workshops.He was very accomodating in organizing them to fit around our limited time schedule.We did the Melbourne Zoo, Street & Travel and Melbourne by Night workshops.Matt was an excellent teacher who freely shared his tips and tricks of the trade with all, he spent alot of 1 on 1 time with each person in the small group environment and was extrememly helpful to us with recently upgraded cameras.His teaching style and personality is truly an amazing gift.Along with Matts personal assistance, he provided us with handouts and flashcards to assist in getting the camera settings right when on location.Matt also provides great after course information with links to tutorials, facebook group assistance and his popular critique videos.We would highly recommend any of these tours and look forward to visiting Melbourne again to partake in some of Matt's other workshops.Thank you for your time, patience and sharing your expertise with us Matt.Donna

My partner gave me a tripod and booked me into Matt’s Melbourne city night photography workshop - what a fantastic gift! The small group (6 of us) all had different cameras; Matt effortlessly helped us all to learn more about our camera settings and led us to several spots in the CBD, teaching us a new technique at each stop. The take home laminated prompt cards for each technique are a great idea. Matt runs a number of other small group workshops including Travel and Street Photography so I’ll be back for that one soon!

Matts workshop was a gift from my husband. We travel alot and he knew I absolutely love photography bur never learnt how to use my amazing camera to its full potential! Matts workshop varied in skill yet he gave enough one on one coaching for everyone to be on the same page. I feel like as a noob in photography i was able to grasp the terminology and a way better understanding of my camera and what I can do to make my shots even better. Matt's eye for photography is amazing. He is very creative, artistic and a great teacher. Thanks for all your patience I feel I've taken alot from the course. I look forward in using the tools i developed as i travel the world this year. Highly recommend Matt's courses I'll definatly be back. Thanks Matt you've inspired me!

Thanks Matt for a great morning learning more about photography at Melbourne Zoo last weekend! Matt has a wonderful teaching style and the small group (6 people) meant he was able to make time to give us all individual feedback. He has obviously put a lot of time and effort into preparing the workshop to create key focus areas of learning, complimented by some great printed material to review later. The booking process was easy through his website and Matt has already followed up with some great links to tutorials on his website to help me with some topics I wanted further clarification on. I would highly recommend Matt’s courses to friends and family.

I attended Matt’s “beginner” workshop at the zoo and loved it! Matt has a fantastic teaching style that was informative but not overwhelming. He has obviously put a lot of time and effort into preparing the workshop to cover different key points and provided us with handouts so we can review what was learned. The booking process was easy through his website and Matt has already followed up with some great links to tutorials on his website to help me with some topics I wanted further clarification on. I look forward to booking the city/travel workshop and hopefully the Lightroom editing workshop, and would highly recommend Matt’s courses to friends and family.
