Astrophotography Australia

Australia’s premium quality astrophotography workshops

Join me on an out of this world experience as I take you to some of the most amazing locations in Australia to shoot astro! I have just spent two years travelling and shooting in the America’s South West, where I spent countless nights mastering the night sky. It’s time for me to share my knowledge with you, fast tracking your skills, and saving you thousands of hours of trial and error while taking you on an adventure under the stars! It’s easy to get lost in the world of astrophotography, but with careful instruction, I will guide you through the basic and most advanced techniques in-field and with post processing, so you can produce the best images to date!

These workshops have been formulated for anyone who has an interest in imaging the night sky, specifically the Milky Way! All skill levels are welcome! Limited positions will be available because I’m a huge believer in quality over quantity and I want as much time with each person as possible. Everyone has different goals and various skill levels, which is why there are three options for you to choose!

3 hour instruction

During this workshop, we will have three hours to find and shoot the Milky Way, which will give us plenty of time to go through all the different settings to maximise the quality of the photos and become familiar with using them. This workshop is available for all skill levels whether you’ve never taken a photo of the night sky, or you just want to hone your skills and take them to the next level.

Astro Workshop + Post Processing

This workshop will be split up into two segments, In-field and Classroom. Taking photos is only a small portion, especially with Astrophotography. I will be taking you through not only how to shoot astro to the best of you and your camera’s ability, but also how to maximise the results in post processing. We will be covering various techniques of how to capture different images for specific purposes, allowing us to put the puzzle pieces together later on in the classroom. Post processing the night sky can be extremely difficult, daunting and time consuming—until now. With step-by-step instruction, you will be able to bring your images to life and be instantly proud of your achievements. This workshop includes a nights stay at a minimum 4-star hotel. You may opt out of the accommodation by contacting me prior to booking the workshop.
