About the workshop
Do you have a DSLR camera that you don’t feel confident enough to get off Auto mode? Do you have many photos that are lacking in punch, or just don’t feel like they are expressing the same emotion as what you saw when you took the shot? Or maybe you have a few photos that you are particularly proud of but you are just unable to replicate them again?
Join me, an award winning Canberra landscape photographer, and I’ll take you on an introduction to using your DSLR camera and get you off Auto mode. This workshop is designed to give you the fundamental understanding on how different shutter speed, aperture and ISO can be used creatively to pursue the photography you love. You will also be shown considerations on how to compose a photo so it is more impactful for you, and your viewers.
You’ll accompany me along the shore of Lake Burley Griffin where you’ll be given tuition on how to use your camera in terms and language you will be able to understand. In fact, I’m is so confident that you will get immense value out of his workshop that in the event after the first hour you feel it is not for you you may leave the workshop and receive a full refund – this is my guarantee.
A great day around the lake learning the fundamentals. Glenn has plenty of knowledge and patience and makes sure everyone keeps up. I am now off the auto setting and can see instant improvement in my pics

I recently attended Glenn’s beginner’s workshop. I found it to be informative and enjoyable. Glenn is an excellent photographer and instructor, friendly, accommodating and excellent at interacting with others. The event was well organised, the selected location was scouted beforehand, interesting and good for photography. I am looking forward to attending other workshops
