Yusuf Hashim and Maxby Chan will be conducting another Photography Workshop, at the Subang Golf Club, on the weekend of  7th and 8th March, 2015. This will be their 17th Photography Workshop since 2008, which to date has benefitted more than 600 participants

Although this workshop is targeted at beginners and intermediate amateurs, it will also be  useful to photographers who have expensive photography equipment, but have never had any formal training in  Composition, Colour Theory,  Frame Dynamics, Secrets of Black and White Photography, Street Shooting, Travel Photography, Landscape Photography, and Digital Photography workflows.

At the workshop, the single biggest secret of all good photographers will be revealed, and  you will also be given the PhotoSafari Recipe for Shooting  Good Photographs. In addition, there will also be lots of self-study videos and hand-outs given to you. Half the second day will be devoted to a simple Digital Photography Workflow where you will be shown how you can post process your digital images  into photos that that you can be proud of.

Originally designed to prepare newbies and amateurs, to bring them up to speed before they join Yusuf and Maxby on one of their Photosafari Experiences to exotic places worldwide, the PhotoSafari Workshop has continuously been fine tuned to become an excellent primer even for advanced amateurs.

This workshop is Part One of PhotoSafari’s Two-Parts Photography Training System. Part Two will be  Real Time personal coaching during a Photosafari at an exotic location worldwide, where the theories  explained and discussed at the workshop, will be reinforced 24/7 during shooting on location.
