Photographing the Landscape

Photographing the Landscape

195.00 235.00

Saturday 18 May 2019

This course will be held amongst the rolling hills at Magpie Springs Cellar Door Art Gallery south of Adelaide. Break down what makes a succesful landscape photograph and then make images of the vineyards, hills and river.


Spend a day amongst the rolling hills at Magpie Springs Cellar Door and Art Gallery south of Adelaide. We will all meet there, not at the CCP.  Once settled, we will begin to extend your vision in the natural landscape; look at the parts that make up the whole, and how best to accentuate this vision under different lighting conditions.  After lunch, you will be encouraged to walk up the river and over the hills to create images practiced and discussed during the first part of the day.

About Mark Goddard

Mark Goddard is a South Australian fine art photographer and photography lecturer. His photographic journey began with searching for formalist and abstract beauty within urban and natural landscapes, resulting in a number of solo and group exhibitions.  Mark follows a simple philosophy using one camera, one lens, and a good pair of walking shoes.


A fundamental understanding of photography plus a love of the landscape.  Warm, waterproof and windproof clothing, including gloves and beanie with appropriate strong footwear and a reasonable level of fitness is required for this workshop.

Required Materials:

Bring along your lunch and drinks or chance local shops being open.  Expect cold temperatures, so dress very warmly and suitably; sturdy walking shoes are a must!  Bring your own digital SLR camera and a selection of lenses if available, along with plenty of spare memory cards and batteries. Film users are very welcome, please bring spare batteries and lots of film.  A sturdy tripod with remote trigger or cable release is recommended, as are graduated and non-graduated neutral density and polarising filters.

N.B. A rain date of Sunday 7 May has been accounted for in the case of bad weather.
