Spring is almost here and Western Australia's amazing wildflower season is well and truly upon us - all those gorgeous colours bursting through after the winter rains....are just begging to be photographed! We are lucky enough to have the Western Australian Botanic Garden in Kings Park right here in the Perth CBD. The garden is home to over 3000 of our state's unique native wildflowers and this is a perfect place to start learning wildflower photography!


You don't need a macro lens to get started in wildflower photography, I promise!  In this beginners workshop, I will show you how to start capturing great photos with the camera and lens you already have and teach you to get your camera off auto and create more dramatic wildflower photos. Learn how to create wildflower photos with gorgeous blurry backgrounds; how to get more depth of colour in your wildflower photos; how to get beautiful wildflower photos in any light; composition for close-ups and flowers in the landscape....and lots of other tips and tricks. If you are a novice photographer who currently shoots in auto mode and would love to take their photography a little further...this workshop is perfect for you!


These workshops are an opportunity for you to learn about photography and spend an afternoon shooting in a fun, hands-on and supportive environment with other like-minded, enthusiastic photographers! It is a great way to exchange ideas with other photographers, get into the great outdoors, learn some new photographic skills…and create a few killer shots!

  • Your creativity, an open mind and your sense of adventure!
