Hey thanks so much Jules!!! Yes it was an outstanding success, a great thing to celebrate with everyone and deliver some good old fashioned value to the attendees at the same time

Would you like an obligation free sneaky peak at my book, ‘Memories at your fingertips – organise your digital photos like a pro‘? I think it’s fair enough that these days you might like to get a look at something before you buy it. So I have two chapters to share with you. Chapter 2 […]

Wooooo! Congratulations Beth!!

As you probably know I run dSLR manual camera workshops where I teach participants how to shoot in manual mode. After we turn on the camera, we switch it to M for Manual and I propose a wild and wacky idea – that they leave their camera on manual from now on. You can literally […]

If you turned the sun and the lights around about the place off, what would happen? You’d be in total darkness, wouldn’t you? So therefore, if you want to make a picture, you need to first see what’s going on with the light you have available to you. For example, in my picture above, you […]

I am thrilled to say that overnight the pledging now has exactly 100 supporters and just passed $7K. This is HUUUUUUUUGE!!!!!

It’s book crowd-funding eve! I’ve been waiting patiently for everyone to come back to earth from the holiday period, and now finally, the time has arrived! Crowd-funding is a way to get your project funded by your ‘crowd’. In my case essentially it’s a way of pre-selling my book before it’s made. More about the […]

I took my photo group this week to Herring Island in Melbourne. It’s a small island, very natural and largely untouched that is accessed by a little punt across the Yarra River. When I arrived we had about 60 attendees and I thought, it’s a cloudy day and not a lot to do on this […]

Great tips, thanks Beth. I have young kids & they (still) enjoy posing for me so that I can practice my skills.

Let me guess. 1. In your family, you’re the one with the ‘fancy camera’. 2. In all likelihood at some stage you’ll be facing a family reunion. 3. You’ll be called up to photograph the family event. No pressure, or anything, right? It’s simple isn’t it, just take a few snaps? You have the expensive-looking […]

Great post Beth! Very timely and heaps of hints to use for other group occasions. Enjoy Christmas.

I am thrilled to say I know have a book title and cover completed! I launched it to my online communities and the response was overwhelmingly positive. In fact, I asked everybody for their thoughts on the book title. The name went through many incarnations and variations, but my editor David and I came to […]
