Why Choose me?

You get the ultimate value for money. I give 110% in every workshop to teach you everything you need to know to become a great bird photographer (using natural means). I am 100% ethical and bird friendly and have been a long-time volunteer with bird conservation organisations throughout Australia.

What You Get

We cover exposure compensation, how to get close and low, backgrounds and foregrounds, set and forget functions, how to master birds in flight, how to use your camera in manual mode, how to deal with high ISO (and avoid digital noise), essentials of post-processing, including take home materials such as checklists and cheat sheets. 

I also put a special focus on the Art of Bird Photography. What does it take to get not only a good bird image, but a beautiful bird image? 

In short, I will teach you how to learn the rules like a pro, then break every single one of them like an artist.

I will change the way you photograph birds forever - that's a promise!

The feedback I have had already has been phenomenal.

In addition to having won numerous international nature photography awards (including being the first Australian women to win a category at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards in its 54 year history run by the London Natural History Museum), I have been a finalist in the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year awards every year since 2014 with a total of 16 finalist images (2 category wins, 3 runners-up and the much coveted Portfolio Prize (2016)).

I have also judged several Australian nature photography competitions, including the Australasian Birdfair photo competition and the inaugural Australia Bird Photographer of the Year.

I know what makes an award-winning image, not just a good image.

So what are you waiting for?
