Bondi Beach is the most famous beach in the world and offers unparalleled photographic opportunities and subjects. This workshop has a particular focus on landscapes, colour, action, modelling and dynamics. Bondi is a cosmopolitan beach where the rich and famous are seen walking their poodles and eternal youth bare flesh. It's the golden sands, the curving surf line following the eye to the headlands, the changing kaleidoscope of land, sea and sky.

We show you how to shoot reportage style, interactive shots, how to 'break the ice' with strangers, changing your viewpoint, how to use a polarizing filter, creative use of leading lines, action (surfers, skateboarders, swimmers), the art of tilting the camera, how to shoot landscapes, seascapes, how to deal with contrasting exposure and much more.

Our route follows the coastal walk to Tamarama with its wave-sculptured cliffs enclosing this pretty cove. We shoot crashing surf, kids and dogs splashing around, the clean lines of the Tamarama surf club, hedonistic models sunbaking and often take a dip in the rocks pools. We finish off with refreshments at the Tamarama beach café.

terms & conditions

Paying for your course in full upon booking will confirm your attendance. Places are limited on all courses.

We reserve the right to cancel and reschedule any course, due to inadequate enrolment bad weather, instructor illness, or an 'act of God'. We also reserve the right to cancel any course if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that our costs would be higher than our income. Please therefore do not leave it until the last few weeks if you are interested in a particular date, as you may find that it has been cancelled. As our costs for each training event remain the same no matter how many delegates attend, like any pre-booked tickets for the theatre, concert, flights etc, we are unable to give a full refund in the event of non-attendance, regardless of the circumstances. If withdrawal occurs within the 14 days before the course starts we will try to put you on an alternative date if places are available. Please note that we cannot be liable for any other costs incurred by yourself, so please check with us before booking any non-refundable accommodation or transport.
