Womens Surf Photography Workshop #1

Womens Surf Photography Workshop #1



Calling all aspiring Womens Surf Photographers! It’s finally time to launch my new girl gang The Clique and I couldn’t think of a better time or place than now in Byron Bay! I’ll be hosting a full day, hands on workshop sharing my insider knowledge, techniques and top tips from the last 5 years as a freelance photographer in the surf & fashion industry. You’ll also have access to the very best gear to learn on, from our partners Canon & Aquatech Imaging Solutions who will be providing equipment on the day.

OUR AIM: Our aim for this workshop is to provide a fun, relaxed and nurturing environment for women to gain industry knowledge, learn valuable surf photography techniques and achieve their photography dreams! We want to provide the opportunity for women to use world class equipment and learn how to unlock their creative potential in the industry. We’re here to encourage, uplift and inspire all involved and we want you to walk away feeling empowered and motivated to make your mark on this world!

WHERE: Future Dreamers, Byron Bay - We have a beautiful space ready for you at Future Dreamers, Byron Bay. A creative and supportive humble abode right in the heart of Byron Bay, where will meet and conduct our workshop sessions from. We’ll also be back and fourth from the beach to get in the water and shoot our surfer girls!

WHEN: April 13th, 2019 - Full Day
