Tell A Story

Saturday the 9th of July
Bago Vineyard - 9am - 2 hours
This is number 1 of a three part series in which the photographer is challenged to 'Tell a Story' in no more than 7 images. of the venue and its purpose in being. Part of the challenge is that It can not show overt advertising. Remember the key elements of photo journalism are, Who. What, Where, When, How. This is an excellent opportunity to create images out of the norm to add to your portfolio of Art Photography. Just imagine that you have been hired by Vogue magazine for this shoot.

Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.
Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.
New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.
And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Port Macquarie Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

I have never really had any interest in Portrait photography but the meeting on Saturday has me planning to do a lot more portrait photography

Despite the unpredictable weather Natasha went ahead with the meetup and that was the right decision. We managed to get some great macro photos taken by me inbetween small showers and then discussed them under park shelter. She also taught me to look at an object and think about what it was I was wanting to convey in the photo, what was the story? It was lovely to get an artistic perspective on the photo and not just getting a tack sharp photo

I enjoyed learning more about the technology of night photography and will be experimenting with this knowledge. It was also good to meet up with others with similar interests in this field

It was great, the location was lovely. Bruce knew what he was talking about, and gave clear instructions on using the rail slide. On the whole I think we were given good prior reference material and a top location was chosen for the shoot.
