What we're about

This group is for anyone and everyone interested in Photography walks, workshops and meetups. As an organiser i have many other groups where we run Photography Learning Workshops quite often (at least one in fortnight). This group will offer quality meetups to everyone who is passionate about fashion, portraiture and fine arts photography.

Introduction to Meetup Organiser:


Zeeshawn is Melbourne based, internationally published, certified trainer and AIPP accredited photographer. (www.aipp.com.au)

My major expertise are to teach how to connect and communicate with models to achieve best results in your photos, as I believe a model’s presence in a shot is one of the key factors for any photo to stand out. I mainly teach how to use your available resources, gear and lighting to produce high quality results.

I started photography about 11 years ago with a mission to bring in a unique and exotic touch to the industry.

My ultimate goal is to capture moments perfectly, allowing individuality to reflect clearly and personality to radiate accurately through the right story. I understand the fact that success can never be bought but a “can do” attitude helps one acquire it.

Over the years, I have learned and listened to the needs of people who wished to be photographed by someone that actually deliver candid result. This is the key motivation factor, which keeps me determined to deliver high quality work.

Sydney - Portfolio Builder with 6 Models

49 Johnston St


8 hours of photography workshop. A brilliant opportunity to work with 6 Agency Standard Models, build your Portraits Photography Portfolio and learn over 20 different Lighting techniques. I have been running photography workshops for over 4 years now with highly positive feedback from my workshop attendees. I do not overcrowd my workshops with a lot of people. I prefer workshop attendees not more than 10 so everyone gets a chance to work and interact with models, learn techniques and get some good shots. My workshops are not just simple group shoots. I share the exact same techniques I use in my own shoots, and I push workshop attendees to communicate with models, pose them, use their own creative imagination and create art which is unique in their own style. In these workshop sessions, you will learn how to use your own limited gear & lighting resources, basic wardrobes and simple lighting setups which don't cost an arm and leg, so you can reproduce the similar results on your own.
