Trekabout Photography  Workshops offer personalised photographic tuition, in stunning natural locations and at affordable prices.  Brisbane photography workshops are offered by many companies. Attention to detail and high levels of hands-on individual tuition set Trekabout Photography Workshops apart from the pack.

Trekabout's “in-the-field” photography courses, workshops and tours mean more hands-on teaching and less time spent in a classroom environment.  Trekabout cater for any level of experience, from the beginner with a compact camera to the more experienced photographer who is using an SLR.  If you would like to learn how to use your digital camera more effectively and pick up techniques that will allow you to take more stunning photos, Trekabout Photography Workshops are for you.

Award winning photographers, Michael Snedic and Mark Rayner (click on names for their biographies) have over 40 years of photographic experience between them. 

They are both AIPP Fully Accredited professional photographers, passionate about their craft, good communicators and experienced tutors.  As well as lots of group tuition, each and every participant will receive personalised tutoring, suiting their individual level and needs. 

While in the field, you will be shown how to achieve the best results from your camera. On selected workshops, Michael and Mark will critique some of the photos taken that day and give advice on any improvements that can be made. 

Numbers are limited to small manageable groups assuring you of very personal attention with high levels of one-to-one tuition.  

You will learn much more with hands-on photographic tuition, by two highly-professional photographers and experienced tutors, than you will ever gain from reading photography books and magazines or browsing the internet. 

Over the years, Michael and Mark have learned many techniques and tips that have allowed them to become successful in their field. They will share this experience and knowledge throughout each “in-the-field” workshop presented.

 You will be guided through a simplified digital workflow to make post-processing of images easier, as well as a few quick tips on some of the more useful image-manipulation techniques.

Each workshop is tailored to different aspects of photography, where there will be an opportunity to experiment with various methods and styles.

Mark and Michael have a professional, yet relaxed tuition style. You will learn many new techniques and have fun in the process.
