This is a one day coastal and long exposure photography workshop at Murrys Bay on Aucklands’s North Shore. On this workshop, you’ll learn how to shoot dramatic and awe-inspiring coastal landscapes and make long exposure photographs. This is designed as an intermediate-advanced workshop.
We will start by meeting at the café for a coffee (included), to have a quick look at some of the best settings for coastal and long exposure photography. Once everyone is up to speed and introduced we will hit the beach for the rest of the day, finishing with the chance to shoot the sunset.
Long exposure photography requires the use of ND filters (we have some to borrow if you don't have your own) so you can use longer shutter speeds to create beautiful effects with movement in water and clouds. Capturing images like this requires excellent technique and some knowledge. By joining this workshop you’ll be guided in the techniques needed as well as learning how to take some amazing coastal photographs.

  • Itinerary

    This is a one-day landscape photography workshop, start time will depend upon what time sunset is as we aim to finish with a sunset shoot.
  • Class Size

    We believe that a small group size provides the best possible learning outcomes. Our 1-day workshop provides a tutor-student ratio of 1:4 or better. Maximum group size is limited to 8 with a group of 5 and more an assistant will be present to help out the group.
  • Physical Difficulty

    A minimum level of physical activity is necessary to enjoy the workshop. All locations we shoot will be within an easy walk along the coastline, but sometimes over rocky beaches carrying your own equipment. If fitness or mobility is an issue please let us know - there are often locations which offer great shooting possibilities close to the road or our accommodation, or sometimes we also have the option to split the group.
  • Equipment & Experience

    Ideally, you will have a basic knowledge of photography and be comfortable adjusting camera settings such as aperture and shutter speed. An aim of the workshop is to give you more confidence in the creative control of camera settings and shooting in manual mode. We will have a brief session at the start of the workshop, covering camera settings and controls, to be sure everyone is up to speed.
