Step outside your familiar structures in search of your own photographic style. An immersive 5-day experience to get you thinking differently about photography.
We developed this workshop as a response to the common issues that folks at camera club keep raising with us. Every time we hear someone say "Oh gosh they never told us that at camera club", we were listening. Clubs are really great at providing structure when learning the craft of photography, but there often comes a point at which that very structure is what holds you back from achieving your full creative potential. This workshop is designed to drag you out of the comfort zone and give you permission to find your own style.
This workshop is run by Ewen Bell and Shellie Froidevaux. Their experience in workshops and teaching is exceptional.

The location for this workshop will be a special farmhouse on the Port Campbell side of Portland. It's a decent drive from Melbourne, but we're hoping a few of our guests will take the chance to plan a few extra days to stop along the Great Ocean Road on their way back home. The farmhouse has laundry faclities and internet.

Reviewing Your Work
The starting point for this workshop is a review process.
We intend to be very direct and very honest. This workshop is for people who are genuinely ready to change their photography. We're not here to puff anyone's ego, and we're not here to simply score some points. It doesn't matter how good your photography is, it only matters whether you want to make it better.
When you register for the workshop you'll be sent a welcome kit which outlines what we'd like you to prepare for the initial review session. It won't be onerous and can be completed online.
Luxury Farmhouse Accommodation Single rooms as standard. Discount for Couples or Twin Share.
All Meals Shellie will cook and care for all guests.
Hands On Printing Take your work home in print.
Critical Review We start with a review of your photography.
Instruction Course program delivered by Ewen and Shellie.
There's an amazing amount of potential that can be hidden beneath the competition structure of clubs. We want to bring that talent into the light.
