You want to do better than holiday snaps … Right?

Photographs can be much more than the mere depiction of a place and time. Images tell a story, convey emotions and capture moods. Vantage points, angles, the light, exposure times … even what’s included in an image and what’s left out. These are elements that elevate a photograph from a medium of record, to an art form. The exciting thing is that by taking part in the Mornington Peninsula Landscape Photography Workshop, you will be taking the photographs that please the inner artist and stop people in their tracks.



– Designed for beginners

– Small class sizes of up to five people

– Spectacular locations

– Emphasis on having a lot of fun.

Mornington Peninsula Landscape Photography Workshop

Daryl has a deep affinity with the Mornington Peninsula and its landscapes, having lived in and photographed this beautiful region for the past 30 years. He has worked extensively in publishing and conducted his own successful studio business.

“For me outdoor photography is an exploration of your personal connection with the landscape. It’s never just about making pretty pictures, but responding to a moment or feeling.”

I can teach you the technical and compositional aspects of photography as an art form.

You will be able to take control of your camera and create images that please you and resonate with the viewer.

Workshop topics include

– Camera set-up

– Composition techniques

– ISO ratings and how it impacts on your images

– The relationship between aperture and shutter speed

– Lenses and their characteristics.

How does it work?

Mornington Peninsula Landscape Photography Workshops are two hours duration. Workshops are run every weekend (we check the weather forecast mid week and choose the best evening and location to run the workshop.) Up to five people join us at a spectacular location and learn the technical and compositional skills required to create beautiful landscape photographs.

What do you need

– Any  camera that allows you to shoot in aperture and/or shutter speed priority

– A tripod.

  • Yesterday I was working under the following conditions- less than ideal camera (understatement), struggle with batteries, forgotten camera shoe that attaches to my tripod, rain and inexperience +++. And yet I took 88 shots, only one of which was out of focus. Of the 88, there are 18 that I short listed as not too bad for a novice and ones I actually liked. I understood what a camera can do and how the light creates different moods in the picture. I really appreciated your advice and the opportunity to go out with a few people as I probably wouldn't have been as motivated on my own.

  • My Niece & I had a 2 hour photography workshop with Daryl Gordon last week. Having the right camera and equipment but really, not knowing how to use and get the best results, always showed in my pictures. Daryl's passion for photography has shown me a new experience, for my camera and the outdoors. Here are just a few photos that I've taken with my new found passion. The beach shots were taken at the Light House at Cape Schank. Pittock's Paddock was the setting for the sun set shots. Not fantastic, but I'm well on my way to perfecting the perfect picture.
    Thank you Daryl Gordon the workshop was fantastic. If stars were to be given. You'd be getting a 5 from me. Thanks again

  • Daryl's guided landscape photography workshop is the perfect gift idea for those who are interested in understanding their cameras better. Daryl is patient and no question is too silly. He really knows the peninsula and its beauty. With the landscape and Daryl's knowledge you will thoroughly enjoy  experimenting and getting your camera out of auto mode and into artistic mode. Thank you Daryl Gordon for a fabulous experience.

  • The Daryl Gordon Photography Master Class was an awesome experience that I'd recommend to anyone interested in photography.

    Before the class I hadn't used my SLR for 2 years! In the class I become more familiar with my camera functions, and options beyond 'auto' mode.

    The class ignited a new passion in me for landscape photography - and the Mornington Peninsula is a spectacular landscape to capture.

    Daryl was awesome! Patient, supportive and a brilliant teacher. If you're looking to take your photography to a new level - Book yourself into this class!
