See Perth's best hidden and iconic photographic hot spots and learn how to use your digital camera! Been shooting in automatic mode with the pop up flash for your entire life? Just bought a new camera? You’ll learn how to use it in TWO hours on a djb walk-shop! Aimed at beginners, travellers & explorers, you’ll have an expert photography mentor right next to you, guiding you along, hands on, one to one so you can improve your photography skills instantly. The maximum group size is only 8 and you can bring any kind of digital camera along! We've had people with iphones, DSLR's, Leica M9's and everything in between. Over time we’ve nearly perfected our famous teaching philosophy, in fact, its simplicity is something we’re quite proud of. You’ll learn about shutter speed, aperture, ISO and controlling the light with your camera, so no more blurry images or missing that gorgeous sunset. The djb walk-shops are found in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Auckland and New York! Check out the website for all upcoming dates and times, we have 8 different walks in each city and run them 3 or 4 times a month :) Our walks are constantly evolving as we discover new hidden photographic hot spots around the world, join us and capture your own unique photographs!
