Join Tassiegrammer, Kieran Stone and a NiSi Filters expert for a 4 day / 3 night all expenses included photography workshop and adventure along the Central Coast in NSW, Australia from the 24th August 2017 – 27th August 2017.

Get expert training on the use of neutral density filters with a NiSi Filters expert who will be present throughout the workshop

The workshop will be tailored to suit each individuals needs with subjects and techniques ranging from the most basic of camera settings and compositional rules, all the way through to advanced post processing techniques for those that are more comfortable with the the most popular editing suites.

A reasonable level of fitness will be required as access to some of the possible locations will require walking both before dawn, after dusk and later in the evening for astro session. You will need to be prepared for a variety of weather conditions as the seasonal conditions along the Central Coast can vary quite quickly. There will be a maximum of 8 participants for this workshop.
