About this event

Join landscape and nature photographer Nathan Dobbie (Nature By Nathan) for 3 hours of photography capturing some of Perth’s most iconic views by the Swan River. The workshop location boasts great photographic opportunities and a variety of different images can be captured in this relatively small area.

To start off we’ll be photographing the city skyline and Old Swan Brewery by the river foreshore as it is basked in late afternoon light. After the sun goes down the skyline comes to life in vibrant colours, providing further opportunities to capture a variety of great photographs as the city lights reflect across the water.

In this small group outing you’ll experience a range of different natural lighting situations and gain an insight into how to use ambient light to your advantage as a photographer.
