Want to make the most of that expensive DSLR camera that's been slowly gathering dust?
Maybe you're considering taking the leap and investing in a professional camera, but just don't know where to begin. Whatever the case, GPP is the place to start your photographic journey.
Don't forget, if you don't have a camera yet we have a few Canon 600D available to loan during the workshop completely free of charge (just request one before your workshop).
We offer year-round DSLR photography workshops for beginners and confident beginners. If you're just starting out, our Digital Photography – Level 1 workshop will give you all of the basics and build a solid foundation for your photography – perfect if talk of aperture, ISO and shutter speed has got your head in a spin.
Enroll on our Digital Photography – Level 2 workshop if you're comfortable outside the Auto zone, and want to add a little Wow Factor to your photos and get a real pro look.
Once you've mastered the fundamentals it's time to take it up another notch with our Digital Photography – Level 3 (On Location) class; putting all of the theory in to practice with a hands-on session outdoors (when the weather is cool enough). This session is all about shaping light to create beautiful photos. You'll master silhouettes, learn when to use flash, and how and when reflectors can solve tricky lighting situations.
Keeping it indoors, our Studio Lighting – Level 1 workshop takes you step by step through the process and art of studio portraiture. In this interactive session, you'll learn essential lighting patterns, how the Profoto studio system works, the uses of different light modifiers to create dramatic lighting effects – with plenty of hands-on time with the equipment.
If you want to simplify your editing and photo management, Lightroom 4 is the way to go. Our Introduction to Lightroom workshop takes you through everything you need to know to use this powerful software – this 5-hour workshop will save you hundreds of hours at the computer.
Photoshop is the go-to program for more advanced photo editing, but opening the software for the first time can be a daunting experience. If you want to get started but don't want to waste hours, weeks or months of your life Googling how to guides, get the answers you need in our Introduction to Photoshop workshop.
