Sunset Introduction


Perfect warm summer nights are definitely great, but it’s the colder winter evenings that deliver the best colours. We are definitely blessed with some amazing Horseshoe Bay and West Point sunsets! Both spots have been perfect for some of the most stunning sunset photography I have ever had the pleasure to conduct. On this sunset introduction photography class, we will start off by understanding the basics of photography and the exposure triangle. You’ll also learn more about your camera settings, and begin to understand exposure, metering and the controls of your camera.

After you’ve got a good grasp of the that, we will then crack on with some shots. We will look at composition and putting your camera though its paces!

We will enjoy the beauty of the sunset at Horseshoe Bay whilst shooting some great sunset photography. Following on from this sunset introduction, if you’re wanting more, you can take the Advanced Sunset Photography course.

Currently there are no specific dates set, as I have found most people contact me to request their own class. So please feel free to email me, or call/sms/WhatsApp on 0436 289 402 to discuss your bespoke class.

OK, Let’s get out and SHOOT!

    All about the Sunset Introduction.

    Yes, I am total sucker for sunsets. I have shot the sunsets almost every year for the past 10 years, and although many seem similar, I believe all are stunning and unique.

    Sunsets are popular to photograph. However, often many a sunset lover is unhappy with the image they’ve taken not matching the scene they see.

    I want to help change that! Regardless of what camera you use, sunsets at Horseshoe Bay are worthy of capturing almost every evening during the winter months. The warmer months are still worthwhile too, they’re just often not as common or as vibrant… But still beautiful.

    I can help you get the best out of your camera to take an image you’ll be proud of. It just involves a little bit of understanding your camera. Sometimes even ignoring what it thinks it should be doing, and getting it to to do what you want it to do!

    As with almost all of the shoots I conduct, I am happy to tailor them to suit the individual needs of the photographer. Just let me know what you’re wanting to do, learn, shoot etc. Also, what gear you have, and/or what you’d like to try out. I have a fair bit of gear that can be put to good use.
