Vivid Sydney 2015

2016’s Vivid festival in Sydney once again did not disappoint. With much more going on this year than ever before people arrived in droves to take in the sights.

I have spoken to many people over the years that are unhappy with photos they have taken at Vivid, after all it isn’t the easiest subject to capture. The images on the Opera House move and change and cause blur if you are not sure what you are doing. The ferries and boats zoom past constantly adding blur and distraction to the shot. So I decided to create my own Vivid workshops. For the last 3 years I have taken photography enthusiasts into the city to show them the ropes and help them achieve the shots they were hoping for. The nights are fantastic, and we have a lot of fun. But most importantly, the attendees are extremely happy with their images and new found knowledge. With the success of these workshops, I will once again be running courses in 2017. These will be held on a Monday nights and Wednesday nights during the Vivid Festival. I am currently booking workshops for Monday 29 May and Monday 5th June.

Course Details: I will be providing a guided tour and personal tuition for a small group. We will walk around the harbour and take an array of images including The Opera house from different angles, Customs House, The MCA building, The Harbour Bridge, the Botanical Gardens as well as playing with light painting and long exposures.

This tour will last for four hours where I guarantee you will leave with pictures you will be proud to show off, knowing you took them yourself.


Editing Tutorials: For anybody booking this course you will also receive an 50% discount on photoshop editing video tuition class, so you can take your images one step further for that professional polished finish.

The cost for the course will be $150.00 pp. There is only a limited amount of places on this tour so bookings are essential. A $50 non-refundable deposit will be taken at time of booking. First in best dressed, so don’t delay, to avoid disappointment.

Feel free to click through some of my images from the past three years. I was super impressed with the Aboriginal theme this year. I just know that 2017 will bring even greater things.
