“Learn how to effectively capture, process and share beautiful ocean images”
Join us on the NSW South Coast for a weekend with acclaimed ocean photographer THURSTON PHOTO.
You’ll learn all the best tips and ultimate techniques of wave photography from one of the best in the business.
Learn what shooting waves is all about–from gear selection, protective gear and ocean safety to positioning, camera settings and creativity.
Take part in challenges to put your new-found knowledge to the test and then learn what it means to turn your awesome capture into a true masterpiece through the perfect post-processing.
Shoot the colours of the dawn and dusk, shoot above water and below to fully explore the magic of capturing the surf.
Leading the INTRO to SHOOTING WAVES workshop is Philip Thurston, professional ocean and adventure photographer based in South Coast of NSW, Australia.
Phil grew up in the heavy Australian reef breaks on the South Coast of NSW.
Together with his two older brothers he pursued professional bodyboarding– which in his late teens developed into a growing passion for surf photography to document and support his older brother’s career in professional wave riding. Their commitment and dedication to shooting the powerful large swells that would hit seasonally not only developed a passion in Thurston for the raw energy of the ocean swells but conditioned him with the confidence to capture up close and beautiful imagery of the breaking wave.
Self-published author of the ‘Living Water’, Phil now travels the world capturing ocean and adventure related images that drive the growing momentum and inspiration of Thurston Photo. You can learn more about Phil at his website.
Joining Phil on this exciting workshop will be Australian marine photographer Darren Jew. Darren has been a full-time professional nature photographer for over 30 years. His deep passion for the oceans is evident in his work and his career achievements have seen him recognised as a Canon Master.
Darren has been photo-guiding around the planet since 1993, introducing photographers to both terrestrial and marine wildlife–all the way from Antarctica to Zambia. He’s been a full-time professional nature photographer for over 30 years.
His deep passion for the oceans is evident in his work and his career achievements have seen him recognised as a Canon Master.
Scott Stramyk from the Canon Collective will be joining us to supply and assist with loan underwater photographic equipment and will be available to give tips and advice on photographic equipment and any technical questions around the Canon gear.
