    It was a great evening. Something I had not done before, so I learnt a lot.
    It is great to be on a workshop with Brett. He is friendly and knowledgeable. He makes me feel relaxed, and is a great teacher for the things I need to know. I have thoroughly enjoyed the workshops I have done with him
    I enjoyed the session, and learnt new things (yay). Brett was informative and helpful, and his pre-session info was very useful.

    Great. Whilst I had done some astrophotography before, Brett explained everything really well and I enjoyed the session.
    Susie was very knowledgeable and explained things clearly. I learn a lot.
    I have been to two of Brett?s photography workshops and each time have come away with new ideas. His ?Golden Light? session was held at Cornelian Bay beach at a perfect time of the day where you couldn?t help but take gorgeous photos. Brett is very skilled both as a teacher and a professional photographer. He makes his sessions entertaining and shares his teaching time equally with everyone in the group. I am looking forward to Brett's next workshop. I strongly recommend Brett's sessions.

    I found the information really helpful (I.e the triangle, learning the order of setting up manual for taking photos and enjoyed having some time outdoors to practice!
    Fabulous event! Lovely to have a topic to learn about. Brett covered the essentials so well, and took us around perfect places to capture street photography

    Loved it. Matt was very informative and I would do another of his events if offered in the future.
    This was a great event. It gave me a basic understanding of my camera settings so that I can start to play around with my camera with a bit of an idea of what I need to be doing! Very worthwhile for anyone who has bought a camera and is confused about all the different terminology. Susie was also very down to earth and explained things in a way that was practical and easy to understand.

    Title or Location: kunanyi/Mt Wellington Hobart Tasmani
    The view from the top of kunanyi/Mt Wellington is always good but I had a inkling, while overnighting in Hobart looking up at the mountain, it would be special when I saw the cloud drop down from the peak to the valleys. I drove up as soon as it cleared. I'd not seen this effect before. Specially, this time, I also had overseas visitors with me. It made this rare and beautiful view more meanignful to share with visitors.

    Title or Location: Sandy you beauty (Aotea Rd, Sandy Bay)
    This was in the very first days of mine at Hobart. I moved from Melbourne to Hobart and was looking for an accommodation. After my work hours, I took a bus to see this house which was advertised on Facebook marketplace. Getting off the bus, walking for a few meters, it was a right turn with a steep climb. Even the cars were moving hard on their lower gears and I also started walking slowly. Walking halfway, I looked back to see how far I have come. To my surprise, this was the amazing sight my e

    Title or Location: Big Roaring Beach near Dover, Tasmania
    Big Roaring beach is one of my favourite spots down South. I very often come here for walks, (cold water) swimming. I adore the untamed, wild nature of this beach. There's always so much beauty to capture here. From sunrises and sunsets to textures and wild life including these resident seagulls. In this photo I loved how the birds aligned with the waves and the sky all in similar tones with their red legs giving the photo a bit of a pop of colour. Camera used CANON 600D ISO 200 F5.6 1/2000s

    Title or Location: Hobart Waterfront opposite Victoria Dock.
    I went down to the Hobart Waterfront on 3 March 2024 to catch a nice sunrise but the sky was rather ominous and not what I was expecting. This appearance lasted about 3 seconds and I was lucky to catch the colours.

    Title or Location: Breaking Dawn in Hobart (taken in Knocklofty, West Hobart)
    Captured at Knocklofty Reserve just moments before sunrise, this photo was meant to offer a blend of natural and urban beauty. Positioned to overlook Ross Bay, the vantage point provided a bird's eye view of the landscape below. As the sun was about to emerge, the sky transformed into a canvas of warm orange and pink shades fading into purple and blue hues. Against this celestial backdrop, the city lights of Hobart still twinkled, illuminating the cityscape, including the Tasman Bridge. With my

    Title or Location: St Ninians Bay - Isle of Bute
    On this occasion I had driven back from St Ninians bay to Ettrick Bay to park up for the night...after I arrived and started to prepare my evening meal I saw these incredible light beams across the bay at low tide.

    Title or Location: Murchison Falls, northwest Uganda
    I?m was born and raised in San Francisco and now live in Uganda, working as a professional photographer and safari guide. This lioness is one of the most beautiful creatures I have ever encountered. She was resting high up in a tree at Murchison Falls, in the northwest region. Before taking this photo, she roared at me, baring her sharp canines. It was a simple warning not to overstep her boundaries. The lioness had some cubs located at the base of the tree so she was protective of them. Th
