Mount Magnet Focus 2018 Program of Events

 

Join us for a unique opportunity to spend a week with one of Western Australia’s leading landscape photographers, Paul Dowe. Paul will be running a number of workshops, and eleven photo shoots, at a price too good to be missed. In addition, a very experienced drone photographer, Josh Devries, will run a number of workshops and practical field shoots providing existing and would-be drone photographers the chance to experience this exciting and fast- growing area of photography. Russell Payne from Camera House Midland will also be leading a series of astro photography shoots in the desert.

An Editing Hub will available daily following breakfast in the Anzac Hall designed to enable participants to get together to share ideas and post processing techniques. Both Paul and Josh, our key speakers, will endeavour to be available at these sessions.

The event starts on Saturday 2nd June and finishes up on the following Saturday. A broad overview of events is shown below. Please note that timing of field shoots may vary due to light and weather conditions on the day.
