Tour by Paul

I am a professional photographer who left his native home of Sydney, to pursue something exciting and new by moving to Berlin in 2010.
Once here I started to photograph the burlesque scene and soon became a regular face in the smokey bars and clubs where the shows were happening. I eventually produced two books of burlesque photography.

After that I started an agency that found and represented unusual and talented people for TV commercials.

Now I am concentrating on portraiture and more artistic work, and am currently looking to exhibit my new work and hopefully start on a series of mini books.

I have finished one of these projects so far, an exhibition and mini book of portraits featuring performers at the Staatsoper Berlin (Berlin State Opera) just before, or just after, they leave the stage.

I'm starting workshops to pass on my knowledge and share some fun with visitors in my adopted home.

The workshop is broken down into hands-on classroom theory, where the basic technical elements are made simple, and then we hit the streets of Berlin to put your new knowledge into practical use, looking at light, composing, magic hour, and capturing images.

Please bring your own camera so you can learn and play. The camera needs to have manual settings, but can be digital or film.

What you will learn:
• Camera care and good photo habits
• Exposure, how to get it right and making choices
• Aperture and depth of field
• Shutter speed and movement
• ISO for high quality and low light
• Composition and light: how to look at light and frame an image.

It's a fun day of learning, playing and experimenting, and will get you excited to take more pictures.
