TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography courses and tours in Melbourne

Running a travel photography website entails a fair bit of flying around the world. I know, I can’t complain 😀

However when back home I love to run photography courses in Melbourne.

I see photography as a form of art, and this is what I love to tutor in my photography workshops in Melbourne.

Yes, we will go through the camera settings to make sure you will be the decision maker, not your camera in auto mode.

But this is not the core part of my courses and tours.

The most interesting part is instead what could be called composition, or framing. It’s essentially better photography.

What can we improve to take our photos to the next level? Trying to give the wow factor to our images.

Most of the photos and stories on the MEL365.com website are mine. I have also organised a Melbourne Gallery with a few of the sites we will visit during my Melbourne Photography Course.

You can also check out my Instagram profile for more photos and inspiration.

Free photography courses in Melbourne

I fully understand that the budget may be limited, sometimes null and you are just looking for a free workshop.

I have been through it so I decided to organise a free to download Photography Guide that you can use to kick-start your tutoring. I have included also a document with all the best Melbourne Photography Locations. You have all you need for a DIY course.

The difference in having a group course or a private lesson is that I will not be able to give you custom suggestions, feedbacks, personal tips. Basically, I will not be able to give you one-to-one time.

Moreover, in 3 hours you will be able to achieve a confidence with your camera that will take much longer on your own.

Group Photography courses in Melbourne

The cost is $99  for 3 hours and you may have to share the workshop with a small group of participants (up to 6 people).

The course is organised in multiple challenges.

For each one, I will go through a camera setting. You will forget about the auto mode and you will experience only the semi and full manual settings, besides other easy but effective tricks.

We will use each challenge to master new rules of composition, how to frame your subject, how to improve and enhance your pictures. From taking to making photos.

If interested, the easiest way is to email me for available dates. 

Usually workshops are on Saturdays, however, if you are already in two of you then we can organise it also on another day.

Private Photography workshop in Melbourne

If you are after a 1-to-1 experience you should not miss this private photography workshop in Melbourne.

We will go through most of the camera settings and we will forget about the auto mode.

Moreover, we will concentrate on some of the most important composition rules and how to use them in our favour.

This is a custom made workshop and you can contact me directly through my email to agree on the day and special requests

The cost is $245 for 3 hours (the second person is for free, great if you have a mate to share the cost).

Private Photography Tour in Melbourne

I have been spending most of my free time photographing this beautiful city.

I love going back to some of the popular sites.

I enjoy even more discovering new places and some hidden corners I rarely meet any other photographer. The feature photo of the Buddha temple on top is from Melbourne, even if it does look like being somewhere in Asia 😉

In this private photography tour, I will introduce you to some of the most amazing Melbourne lanes as well as to a few unique and hidden city viewpoints. I like to call it the rooftop experience.

When possible we will try to move using the free trams, otherwise, we will walk

This is the ultimate Melbourne Photowalk experience.

    Hi Stef,

    I was wondering what workshops you have in Melbourne that are focused on iPhone photography in 2017? I’m particularly interested in street photography aspects/photowalks. (This is as a gift for my 21-year-old nephew.)

    If you’re not offering anything in the foreseeable future, could you recommend another person/group in Melbourne for me?

    Thank you,
    Marielle

      Good day Marielle,
      for mobile photography, at the moment, I run it only as a private workshop. It covers 2 hours of composition that can be customised to your nephew need, street photography as an example and much more. The third hour will cover more of post-production, how to improve photos using mobile apps.

      I will send you an email as well with more info
      Cheers
