The Region


The riverside town of Bright is a picturesque village located at the foothills of the Australian alps in the Victorian High Country. It’s picture-perfect tree lined streets draws crowds each year to witness one of the most stunning displays of Autumn colour in the country.  

In addition to the endless display of Autumn colour on offer, this small town provides easy access to one of the oldest National Parks in Australia, Mount Buffalo. Boasting sheer cliffs, granite tors, waterfalls and stunning alpine views, Mount Buffalo is a photographer’s playground.

The endless opportunities for stunning imagery make Bright & Mt Buffalo the perfect place for a photography packed getaway.

The Workshop

Workshop details

This workshop aims to give participants, at any level, a vast range of photographic opportunities to shoot and learn. This region offers everything a photographer could hope for on a photography trip from the wide sweeping vistas to waterfalls as well as natures smaller scenes.

With an abundance of photographic locations and subjects to shoot the workshop will be adaptive to weather conditions. Upon arrival, during our meet and greet, I will outline the itinery of locations planned over the course of the workshop and assess the weather forecast for the days ahead to ensure the best chance of capturing each location under the best conditions.

I will continually assess the changes in conditions and locations may get shuffled around according to the changes in weather. Alpine conditions frequently change making weather difficult to forecast and requiring a level of adaptability for the highest chance of success.

Having a list of locations and then allocating locations to the optimal conditions forecast over the course of the workshop allows for the best in-field teaching as well as increasing the chances of capturing these subjects in the best lighting / conditions.

Living in the High Country and frequently spending time in alpine locations has given me years of experience and
knowledge about reading and adapting to changes in the weather.

What they are saying

"Jeff's ethos of "images for a quieter mind" resonated throughout the workshop. We were encouraged to take our time and get the shots that inspired us, rather than just focussing on the "money shot" and moving on to the next location. Jeff's steady guidance helped us get the most out of the experience and learn new technical skills. Highly recommend."

- Fleur M

"An excellent well rounded workshop in a beautiful location. Jeff is a great teacher who focuses on attention to detail and building on your strengths whilst providing constructive feedback."

- Deb R

"The perfect Photography getaway. Even better than last year's .. Perfect 10's, mate. Well done, Jeff."

- Murray B

"I highly recommend Jeff's Autumn in the High Country workshop. He allowed us to explore each site and then gently guided us to improve the compositions and settings to achieve the image that we were aiming for. Plenty of one one one guidance and I enjoyed his post-processing sessions later in the day. Lots of laughter and good company and I can confidently say it was the best workshop I have been on."

What you will learn

In The Field

The workshop is aimed at improving on your current abilities both in the field and editing your images. Each participant will be at adifferent stage; therefore, I will work with you individually to improve on your current knowledge base and skillset.

I have limited the workshop to a small group size to allow for plenty of time to be spent with each participant to provide personalised tuition.

Working with you in the field I will guide you through my approach to different types of scenes and the things I consider when framing up compositions. I will talk you through my thought process and how I find scenes in nature.

Examples of other things you will learn out in the field will include;

How to use your camera proficiently

Understanding and creating compelling compositions

Methods for shooting wide and small scenes

Understanding different lenses and when to use them

Understanding different types of light

Creative vision and storytelling

Learning to correctly expose for different light and scenes.

Methods for creating tack sharp images


We will take a close look at the core fundamentals of Landscape Photography.

We will do a deep dive into Composition and Light providing examples of images where these have been executed correctly and incorrectly.

Gaining a clear understanding of these core fundamentals will transform your imagery and take it to the next level.

These sessions will be conducted in a 'classroom style' format to ensure the content is delivered without distraction.

Post Processing

I will conduct post processing sessions during the workshop and guide you through my entire workflow. These sessions will give you the knowledge and confidence to edit your raw files and bring your visions to life.

Examples of things you will learn during the post processing sessions include;

Getting the most out of your RAW files.

Creating an effective and easy to use workflow

Understanding the strengths of editing images in Lightroom vs. Photoshop

A start-to-finish workflow on how I edit my own images

Understanding colour theory and how it impacts your images

Creating impact whilst maintaining a natural look and feel to your images.

An overview session will be conducted to give those new to Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop a look and understanding of the programs and learn some of the basics such as how to import your images and catalogue them. We will then work through setting up your Raw editor software and then look at some basic adjustments.

I can then work with each participant individually to provide upskilling based on each person’s level of knowledge and understanding with image processing.
