Making moments

last a lifetime!

Regardless of whether you treat yourself to a photography workshop multiple times a year, once a year or maybe see it as a ‘once in a lifetime experience’; you want to have a great time, capture some amazing images and improve your photography skills. This is where Oz Photo Workshops step in.

We go out of our way to ensure that you get the wonderful shots you’re looking for and have an enjoyable time doing it. We will have you in great locations for the best light of the day; not just for the iconic shots but for those special ‘hidden gems’ that you won’t find in any tour book. Our trips are all restricted to small groups to ensure that everyone is able to get as much individual instruction and assistance as required. This leads to some great stories around the dinner table, where we pick up tips and tricks from one another, while hearing about ‘the one that got away’.

All of our workshops at Oz are led by Alan Barker, who has thirty years in education, both in and out of photography, and has worked with the young, ‘not so young’ and the young at heart. Alan has a calm, easy-going way of working with clients and a knack for explaining complex topics in simple terms.

While we see many Australian photographers on our workshops, Oz Photo Workshops has had the pleasure to partner with a number of international companies and photographers. Through these partnerships we have provided scouting and logistics, along with guiding and assistance through the trip. These companies include:

* Capture New Zealand 

This company is spear-headed by renowned New Zealand photographer, Phillip Bartlett, who pioneered the concept of photography workshops in New Zealand back in 2005. Phillip is now running workshops all throughout New Zealand, as well as parts of Asia.

* Visionary Wild

An American photography company who has been providing photography workshop experiences and expeditions since 2011. Their instructors are second to none and at Oz Photo Workshops we have had the pleasure of working with Michael Melford, a noted National Geographic photographer. 


* Tom Bol Photography

Tom is a US based photographer with a keen eye for detail. He is adept at wildlife, bird and landscape photography and has taken photography groups to most parts of the world. 


Do I have to e a good photographer to enjoy a workshop?

Certainly not!

Oz Photo Workshop experiences are open to photographers of all skill levels, as it is our role to help each individual photographer find and capture their vision, whilst fine tuning or learning new skills along the way.

We look forward to seeing you very soon on an Oz Photo Workshop experience.
