Number of Participants: min 2 – max 6 participants.
In this Full Day Photo Workshop you will learn the basics of operating your digital SLR camera. Learn how to use your camera efficiently and work your way into deeper knowledge in photography.
Workshops are held in Yungaburra in the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, just 90 minutes west of Cairns. Yungaburra and its surroundings are at the edge of the Wet Tropics World Heritage area and showcase some fantastic National Park rainforests nearby. The Tablelands are about 700m to 1000m above sea level and weather here is much cooler and less humid than the coast. Here, we find upland rainforest with crystal clear creeks and extinct Maar volcanoes. We want to be on site once we’re teaching so not to waste precious tutorial time on long car rides when most scenes are just 10-30 minutes away.
We will have some indoor teaching but will try to spend as much time in nature shooting at nearby National Parks. Please be aware that we may be doing some walking on National Park tracks.

How will the weather be and what clothes and general equipment to bring?
Even though we live in the tropical part of Australia, the Tablelands can be quite chilly in winter at night. The days are really quite pleasant and we may be walking through some of the rainforest and creeks.
Bring comfortable walking shoes.
Please bring rain gear like a lightweight jacket or poncho. Just in case the weather turns bad.
It’s actually a good idea to bring a small collapsible lightweight umbrella to be able to keep shooting even if it drizzles or rains. Keep this tucked in your camera backpack at all times.
Bring a water bottle or better yet a flask or thermos for coffee or tea to bring with you.
Hat and sunscreen.
