Capturing the mesmerising beauty of nature with your camera can be much harder than you think.

How many times have you thought you took the ultimate photograph, only to print it out and realise it was average (and out of focus, incorrectly framed and not even of what you originally intended)?

And even though when you looked through your lens you saw the majesty of the landscape, what usually resulted was a lacklustre version of your ideal shot.

Luckily, industry expert Steve Parish is passionate about teaching people how to take the best possible photographs of nature so they can capture that beauty and enjoy it over and over again. He understands that many people take a photograph to capture and communicate a special moment, but sometimes you don’t have the knowledge and skills necessary to make that happen every single time.

If you learn from Steve through his teaching workshops, seminars or adventure tours, you will dramatically improve your photography and make your images stand out from the rest.

So in light of this, Take Better Photos and Steve Parish Nature Connect have come together to offer a unique two-day workshop, limited to 20 people, which will combine Steve’s unparalleled photographic experience with support from Take Better Photos about how to get the most from your own camera.

But is this for everyone? Actually, for this particular workshop, you do need to already know your way around a camera to a degree, so this is open to intermediate to advanced photographers only. The workshop will cost $1095 per person — this will include lunch, morning and afternoon tea, all the course notes, four Nature Photography e-books, and Take Better Photos’ Advanced cheat cards for your camera.

If you do decide to enroll in this workshop, you will need to bring your own equipment including a digital SLR or mirrorless camera. It is also recommended that you bring a long lens (reaching up to at least 200mm), a tripod, wired or wireless remote release and a bolt-on flash. There will be limited equipment available to borrow but you will need to let the organisers know beforehand.

The Steve Parish Nature Photography Workshop is on February 28 – March 1 at Walkabout Creek, The Gap. For more information and to book a place, head to To see more of Steve’s amazing photography, check out his image gallery on his website.
