What equipment will you need?
Although the workshops will be tailored for DSLR, Mirrorless and Bridge cameras, any camera that is able to be switched to Manual Mode will be suitable (if in doubt, please Contact Me). Thinking of getting a camera and want to learn the basics first? A Nikon Bridge camera will be available for loan at no extra cost (first come, first served).
Please note, this workshop is not suitable for Smartphone/Tablet Photography, however, as the fundamentals are still the same, why not come along and use the loan camera.
