Photography Workshops

profile photo

The Basic, Basic & Night and Night-time Photography Workshops will teach you the necessary skills needed to capture better, more awe inspiring photographs, and are ideal for anyone who has recently bought a DSLR or other hybrid camera or someone who's owned one for a while but is still using the Auto Mode.

All my photography workshops are taught in a relaxing easy format, with plenty of time for questions, practicing what you're learning, reviewing images taken and discussing techniques taught during the workshop.

Group photography workshops have a limit of 6 persons, which allows everyone that comes heaps of time to learn all about the various methods taught during the workshop, as well has asking questions, and discussing the various techniques taught during the workshop.

Advance Photography Workshops are designed for those who already have a basic understanding of photography; like understanding the relationship between ISO, Aperture and Exposure when capturing images. These workshops are tailored around the specific needs of the photographer doing the workshop.

What My Clients Say

Client

Charles was a excellent teacher and explained everything so I could understand. Was well worth the workshop. I highly recommend Charles if you want to learn about techniques and making your photos that wow factor.

Client

Deb Bray

Last Saturday I attend the Sunset & twilight workshop by Charles Niautou. Charles has amazing technical skills and knowledge. He has the ability to explain them in a way that is easy to understand and put into practice. I was looking for some guidance in the use of ND & Graduated Filters and Charles was more than willing to share his knowledge. The workshop is excellent value for money and I am looking forward to future workshops.

Client

Melinda Harrison

My son and I attended one of Charles's Astrophotography workshops last Friday night and we had an awesome time, learnt lots and met some lovely people. Workshop size was capped at 6 people so we got plenty of one on one time if we needed. I look forward to attending more of Charles's workshops in the future. Highly recommend to all.

Client

Slava Ivanov

Charles's Astrophotography workshop was great! This was the first time I was doing Astrophotography and I loved it. He really gave me a good start by providing valuable tips and tricks. We covered everything you need to get started with Astrophotography; exposure times, F-stops, composition and general photo gear advice. He really put in an effort to spend time with me and makes sure that everybody gets individual attention. The time-lapse shot that I did turned out awesome. I will be definitely continuing with this as learning new techniques like panoramic shots, really re-ignited my passion for Photography!

Client

Pat Thompson

I participated in two One on One workshops with Charles and the approach he took made sure that my specific needs were met and was very responsive to my questions and the session had both theory & practical components. I found Charles' manner to be respectful, knowledgeable & very supportive. I was very impressed at Charles's capacity to tune in very quickly to what I need & support the development of those skills. As an instructor he is very supportive & non-judgmental.

Charles workshops on astrophotography are amazing. He is very helpful and explains things in a simple and easy way. I have tried shooting stars before but the results after this workshop are unbelievable.

Client

John Hammond

I have now done a one on one basic course with Charles and just completed an astrophotography and night shooting group course with him. He is an excellent instructor, easy going, chooses great venues and overflowing with knowledge and passion for photography. He imparts his knowledge skillfully and in a very practical and understandable way. I have no hesitation in giving him my highest recommendation.

Client

Craig Bachmann

Well if you have ever thought about doing any Astrophotography but have thought it would be to hard, all I can say is contact Charles to book into one of his workshops. I myself was one of these people, but not anymore. Charles only has a small number of people in his workshops at one time so he can make sure everybody understands as the night progresses. He is a great teacher and explained everything so well that my very first shot of the night which was of the Milky Way was amazing! Thanks for all your help Charles..... I wish I did it years ago!
