Hi-Jinks Photography Workshops


 

 

Shining a light on adventure sports

Choose high-speed mountain bike photography on forest trails or scenic climbing photography on the crags of our national parks.

 

- Single day photography workshops in stunning locations

- Work with a team of enthusiastic and skilled athletes to guarantee your shot

- Learn off camera flash to conquer challenging light and differentiate your work

- Small groups with relaxed, informative tuition.

- You take the pictures

- Use our flash equipment or bring your own

* It would definitely be an advantage to own a DSLR and have a basic understanding of how to manually control shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Previous experience with off-camera flash is not necessary.

Photography Workshops

Come and share our favourite places, work with experienced adventure sport athletes, hang out with like minded photographers, learn new skills and make some great images.

We've worked hard to come up with a format that makes our workshops more than just a learning experience. Our focus on location, adventure sport and a cutting edge lighting technique makes them just as much an adventure experience. 

You do not need to be an extreme sport athlete, the workshops are suitable for photographers of any level  

 
 

Although we try to ensure easy access from carpark to location, the landscape often demands an uphill walk and the terrain can be challenging. A reasonable level of fitness and some appropriate clothing should be high on your checklist. 

You should also definitely pack a sense of adventure.

Why our workshops are focused on Off Camera Flash using speedlights:

 

CREATIVE - moody skies and well lit subject

LOW COST - a fraction of the cost of battery powered studio flash

LIGHTWEIGHT - multiple flash guns fit in a backpack

INTUITIVE - simple set up and ease of use

POWERFUL - high powered flash with HSS and TTL

 

Try before you buy

At Hi-Jinks we are great fans of the Cactus flashgun and trigger system, not only does it give us market leading power and performance features (High Speed Sync for example), it also works with pretty much any camera. 

We have enough units on the workshop for everyone to try and use throughout the day.
