With 12 years of photography experience and my passion for teaching photography, you are invited to

join me to elevate your photography to the next level. 

Do you have a vision of an image you would like to capture? Only to arrive, struggle with camera settings and composition? 

Many of us invest in very expensive camera equipment and then put it in "Auto" mode, or Mr Tokyo mode

as I call it. This will produce an image, but in most cases, not what we are after. 

We also suffer from information overload from places such as YouTube.  This tends to confuse us even

more as there are hundreds of channels demonstrating a different process to capture images. 

When you attend my 1 on 1 workshop, I will break it down into simple steps that you can follow and more importantly, remember and repeat. Your session is delivered at a pace in-line with your learning level

ensuring you will not be overwhelm. 

And the best thing of all, you learn on your own camera gear how to change all the settings that are

taught. If you are anything like me, you learn by doing and not by just reading about it. 

So as you progress, you will be adjusting the camera settings yourself and will be able to explore the more creative ways to get the images you have been visualising. 

The workshop will progress along the foreshore which will provide you with the opportunity to capture an image of the the iconic Pt Cartwright lighthouse. Or the opportunity may come to capture an image of the local Ospreys or some surfers enjoying our fantastic beaches.   

We cover:

  • ISO

  • Shutter speed

  • Aperture

Possible photography scenerios we practice are:

  • Potraits

  • Fast moving subjects

  • Landscape

  • Birding

  • Macro

  • Using on camera flash

After the workshop, you will be confident using your camera and your photography will have improved.  And as an added bonus,  you will have a lot of fun along the way! 

Duration will be around 2.5 - 3 hours and workshop notes will be provided to all participants to take away to refer to when needed. 

A One on One workshop is an investment of $160.00.

What previous workshop attendees had to say:

Joey Barnanrd

What an awesome workshop! You joined the dots for me, filled in the gaps in my knowledge, explained how aperture, shutter speed, ISO work together, when shutter speed rules, when aperture rules, settings in my camera that makes all the difference! You are an awesome teacher! I will be returning to learn more! Thank you!

I recently completed a workshop with Grant and my Canon 550D and it's various lenses. Some of the items covered in the workshop were setting up my camera, ISO, shutter speeds, aperture, how to set up a photo, use of flash. The workshop is practical and Grant teaches effectively. I even braved my macro lens towards the end!

These workshops are a great idea (or gift) for anyone entering the world of photography as well as anyone interested in fine tuning the use of their camera and interested in specialised photography.

Stephanie Wyatt

Grant was fantastic. As I am a beginner he kept everything in simple terms. The session was hands on and fun, with plenty of time to take photos. I learnt so many new techniques and have taken photos that I never thought I’d be able to. Definitely recommend doing this session with Grant.

Raelene Bennett

Grant is a fantastic teacher especially for absolute beginners like me he is patient and he explains things in an easy to understand way. I've started using my camera a lot more since I did my introduction to photography workshop with Grant.

Michael Whereat

Grant took all the time I needed to learn the basics of photography. Thoroughly recommend for others.

I had the opportunity, this past Saturday, to enjoy a beginners photography workshop with Grant Richards Photography. The workshop was not only very informative, as Grant possesses extensive knowledge on the subject, but it was also very enjoyable! I learned how to use my new Canon DSLR properly (as well as a newbie can) and practiced how to take good pictures. I highly recommend taking this workshop to anyone who wants to learn how to get the most out of their camera. Thank you Grant.
