Immerse yourself in a weekend of learning, exploring and sharing creative energy in fine art photography.
This weekend concentrates on landscape and body form. Gain confidence by working with our artist’s model in stunningly beautiful and inspirational landscapes that have attracted famous artists (Boyd, Drysdale, Friend, etc) since the 1940’s. Explore how to transpose your imagination into creative reality.
Fine arts photographer Sharon Hickey and owner of The Aperture Club will reveal her insider tips on how to work with figure models. Learn the specifics of how to pose and support your model, and construct powerful images through sound composition. Sharon will demonstrate ways of working with our model in a variety of locations.
We explore the use of light in landscape photography and learn important elements of composition and its relationship with form. After the shoot, participate in valuable group critique sessions to bring out the best in your images.
This is a unique opportunity to work with a professional model in an outdoor environment in an area inspired by many great artists and photographers.
Our artist’s retreat Platypus Burra is nestled on the Macquarie River surrounded by 250 acres of breathtaking flora and fauna and is located 30 mins outside of Bathurst.
