Upcoming Photography Workshop

In this episode Ben and Rob were excited to announce the first every ‘Photowalk Guys Workshop’. We will have more details for you soon but Ben will be running a ‘using your camera’ class and right after that, Rob will be showing people how to utilise the power of Adobe Photoshop to improve their photos.

The class will be before the upcoming Mount Tomah Photowalk on the 9th of May 2015 with more details to be released soon…

Photography Topics:

Rob reviews Gordons Bay in Sydney

Gordons Bay Reserve

Rob loves Gordons Bay because it is so stunningly different to any other beach in NSW and possibly even Australia. That is because the beach is covered by a timber platform where fisherman leave their little tinnies. The combination of the beach, timber slates, metal boats and more – all make for some stunning images.

The L-Bracket

The L-Bracket is a metal bracket in the shape of an L and screws into the bottom of your camera. This then allows you to quickly and easily swap the position of your camera on your tripod from portrait to landscape and back again. Listen in as Ben chats about the L-Bracket and all of its many benefits.

Getting a Photography Website

The main topic of Episode #16, is how to get a photography website up and running. Ben picks the brains of Rob, who has a web development background, to help you work out how to get going with this seemingly daunting task. In particular the guys cover some of the many different ways in which you can get a website, depending on your situation, and what you need have plus much much more.

  1. James Creer

    I’ve never had an issue with Australian hosting company VentraIP and their sister site Zuver. Their prices are very reasonable and minimal downtime. In the times I’ve had to log a support ticket (granted only once) they replied very quickly and got my issue sorted for me (was my fault).

    WordPress is definitely a great piece of web software with lots of support and plugins available.

      Thanks so much for sharing James. 😀
