Sydney Photowalk 2013

Hello Sydney! The heat wave is over so let’s have some fun!

Join us for a Sydney Photowalk on Sunday, February 10th, 2013!

We’ve been granted special group access to the Opera House Concert Hall Northern Foyers, a RARE and EXCITING opportunity!
After meeting at the Opera House steps we’ll head inside for a chance to see and photograph the interior of one of the most iconic structures in the world! Please arrive on time as the group photo, headcount and FREE PRIZE giveaways will happen near the beginning of the walk and we don’t want you to miss out!

Whether you’re a beginner, a dabbler, or a seasoned pro, the event is absolutely free and everyone is invited to attend. So bring your DSLRs, Point & Shoots, Phones, or whatever camera you may have, or simply join us for a nice evening stroll around the harbour. We’re happy to have you!

And, as if hanging out with a bunch of your fellow photographers wasn’t exciting enough? Attendees will have a chance to win FREE PRIZES and giveaways from our friends at the Sydney Opera House, Google Australia, Joby, and SmugMug! No registration is necessary. Just come to shoot, hang out, have fun, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Along the way, we’ll make stops and I’ll give brief talks and demonstrations on photography and answer as many questions as possible. Feel free to ask away, whether it’s photography related or just for fun.

Cost: FREE
When: February 10th, 2013 from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Where: Beginning at The Opera House Steps (see the map below)
Who: All ages and skill levels are welcome to attend

I’ll also be teaching a 2 hour Digital Blending and Post-processing workshop on Sunday, February 10th, 2013 from 2:30-4:30 pm at the Maiden Theatre located in the Royal Botanic Gardens. I’ll be sharing my complete digital workflow from start to finish, focusing on manual blending techniques and how to maintain complete control over your images. From color correction to complex masking, if you’re curious how I craft my photography, this is your chance to find out.
