Whatever the weather Salzburg is a beautiful destination and a wonderful place to explore on foot. This photo showcases a pool, in the beautifully designed gardens at Hellbrunn Palace, where trees, grass and the colors green and yellow dominate. How you use your camera’s zoom lens allows you to explore space and depth or, alternatively, to produce a more two dimensional representation of the scene depicted.


A photography course in Melbourne is just what you need.

  • Are you searching for deeper levels of experience in your life?

  • Do you love photography, but are frustrated by what your camera produces?

I’m Glenn Guy a travel photographer and tutor with 40 years industry experience. I run 3 Hour private and small group camera tuition and photography classes in Melbourne, Australia.

If you’re wondering why a private, one-to-one photography training session is what’s right for you these simple, yet profound revelations from my own creative journey may prove helpful.


I photographed this worker in the grounds of the lovely Botanical Gardens in Kolkata, India. The environmental portrait is a wonderful way to tell a story in a single image.


How to Approach a Photography Short Course

A guiding principal that underpins my own approach to facilitating a great photography short course is that it’s people that make photos, not cameras.

Cameras are tools. Granted, your camera is an expensive and sophisticated tool. However, at the end of the day, your camera is a recording device that preserves memories of the people, places and events along your journey in life.

What you photograph and how good your photos are is dependent upon your own decisions, expertise and life experience.

That’s why putting an expensive camera into the hands of a relative novice is a disaster waiting to happen. Making great photos goes way beyond the camera you own.

Photography Course to Take Control Back From the Machine

Most people struggle to reach their creative potential for years, only to be defeated by the machine they’d spent so much money on but just can’t use.

The good news is I’m here to help put you back on the road you were meant to travel.

The philosophy that underpins my approach to running this camera based photography course is to help you take control back from the machine.

Sure we talk about shutter speeds, apertures, iso and the like. But it’s why and how those subjects are covered that makes this the very best photography short course in Melbourne.

Photography Classes in Melbourne - Is Your Photography Art?

Photography becomes art when it becomes personal.

To hold meaning your photos need to explore your own unique view of the world and the connections you form through the myriad of experiences that make up your life.  

Your camera has become a physical barrier separating you
from the deeper level of experience you seek.

Yet your heart cries out for connection and for a
purpose driven, meaning rich life.

It’s time you made a change.

Your Camera Photographs Both Ways

When your camera serves your needs it's not just recording what you see, it's acting as a means of expression by which you explore how you feel about what you see.

Photography is the way by which I connect with the sublime
that exists on the edge of our normal, everyday experience.

A fast moving river cascades over rocks near Milford Sound, New Zealand. Sharpness and movement existing, simultaneously, in a photograph embues the image with a sense of mystery and timelessness.


Photography Course Like No Other

I’m so happy you found me. I'm here to help you gain control back from the machine we call a camera.

Finally you can explore your creativity through the production of beautiful, life affirming images that document your very own journey through life.

Why is this Photography Course so Special?

The photography courses I run are special because they’re designed around three fundamental principals.

  • Your own, specific needs

  • Your own camera

  • A private, one-to-one experience that’s conducted at a pace with which you’re comfortable

Unlike typical classroom based photography short courses in Melbourne you won’t have to filter out information that’s not relevant to your needs.

Everything covered in your tailor made photography course will be based around what it is you want to learn and any photography projects or travels you’re about to undertake.


A lone iceberg, having broken off the Breiòamerkurjökull Glacier, skims across the surface of the water on Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon on it's way to the sea off the southern coast of Iceland. Use your camera to control movement and, thereby, feeling is a great skill worth exploring.


Beginners Photography Course

Whether you’re considering a beginners photography course or one or more advanced photography classes I’II be tailoring the content specifically to your needs.

The good news is that a large proportion of your photography course will be practical.

That ensures you’ll leave the session confident in the techniques learned and eager to continue to explore your creative abilities.

Part of the booking process is a telephone consultation where I find out exactly what it is that needs to be covered. For example:

  • Are you about to travel? If so, where and when?

  • What do you most want to photograph?

  • What is there about the photos you make that you want to improve?

  • Are there any specific techniques you’d like covered in your photography training session?

Once you understand the fundamentals of photography you'll no longer fear your camera. You’ll be amazed at the creative opportunities that will follow on from this beginners photography course.

Finally you’ll be able to roam free and create meaning rich photos that realize your true creative potential.
