Steve Parish Nature Photography Workshop September

We still have some spots available for the nature photography workshop taking place in Victoria in September. But bookings won’t be open for much longer. You can elect to pay a deposit and balance later, or 3 x payments if you book this month. So I encourage you to book now!  Full details here.

Sunrise in Rowville

I attend weekly business breakfast meetings in Rowville each Thursday. The view from our breakfast room looks out over the golf course towards Mt Dandenong is around 57km (just over 35 miles). We get to watch the sunrise each morning – some are a non-event, some quite lovely. But this morning’s was nothing less than spectacular. See for yourself!

Steve Parish Nature Photography Workshop

If you’re in Victoria (or willing to travel here) and interested in learning more about how to use your camera and about nature photography, then this workshop is for you.

Being held 20-21 September in Belgrave Heights, surrounded by beautiful natural bushland, Steve will be holding an intimate workshop limited to a small number of photographers. If proved to be popular then more workshops will be run next year.

Steve resides in QLD and runs regular workshops there and has been running some in NSW and occasionally in SA too. I attended one of his workshops in 2011 when he came to Malvern where it was held in a gallery. This time round though, we’ll get the opportunity for hands-on outdoor photography with a variety of animals and reptiles one day and the second day will concentrate on what we do with those photos.

And more birds from Lilydale Lake Park

And here are some more, a couple of water birds and a tiny wren.

Superb fairy-wren. Think this was a male.

White-faced Grey Heron. It watched me carefully, trying to weigh up whether to fly off or continue foraging. I moved away and left it in peace after I got a couple of shots.

Female Darter bird.
