WildNature Photo Expedition’s “Brisbane City Lights” photography workshop is designed to show participants the best way to photograph beautiful Brisbane city at night.

The workshop commences at the southern end of the Kurilpa Bridge (near the GOMA building) where Michael will show you how to best photograph the city buildings across the river. As darkness descends, the Kurilpa Bridge will start to light up with a multitude of coloured lights. The amazing shape and architecture of this bridge, as well as the gorgeous lighting, makes this a wonderful subject for photography. There are so many different angles to photograph the Kurilpa Bridge and you will be shown how to take advantage of the various ways to compose your shots.

There is a great opportunity to photograph the William Jolly Bridge, with its wonderful ‘snake’ shape that is also lit up at night. We then set ourselves up so that we can photograph the Conrad Treasury building across the Brisbane River, lit up a brilliant purple colour, as well as other photogenic buildings around it.

Apart from learning how to take great shots of the city after sunset and be shown the best vantage points to take these shots, you will also be with like-minded photographers who are there to enjoy and share the experience.

Past photography workshop attendees regularly mention to Michael that they learn lots of photography techniques on workshops, but then lose some of the skills learned due to not getting out with their camera(s) for long stretches at a time. Some people also struggle understanding the various camera settings and photographic techniques needed to take great photos.

For this reason, Michael has created this new, short ‘Refresher Photography Course', that allows participants to hone and fine-tune their photographic skills. Michael will go through each participant's camera menu, making sure it is set correctly. He will also explain, in easy-to-understand terms, how to get the best use out of their camera(s).
