MELBOURNE (7th-8th Sep, 2 night event)


Saturday September 7 + Sunday September 8

Light painting is such a fun, easy and ultimately rewarding form of photography. Our events are universally loved by young and old!

Rob Turney and Denis Smith have skill sets that cross all genres of light painting and have worked together on some of the most epic light painting events in Australia. This September they are coming together again to bring you 2 nights of light painting madness across 10 HOURS!.

This is an event starting indoors at a great location where we will be teaching you the basics of light painting. By the end of the first night you will be creating your own incredible images. For those that are experienced light painters, you will learn things that will expand you abilities even further.

The second night will be out in the wild putting what you have learned into practice.


  • Creating Orbs (Ball of Light)

  • Refractographs

  • Light Painting Portraits

  • Live light painting projections

  • Light Blading

  • Advanced Outdoor Exposure Control

  • Smashing Myths About Gear!

  • Massive array of tools (including some newbies)


That’s 10 hours of workshop!

This is an event suitable for all skill levels and any fitness level. No matter how much confidence you lack, we always make you comfortable, and get you creating in no time.

Our workshops are renowned as being exciting, high energy, inclusive and most importantly inspirational. You can be a complete beginner to light painting, and you will leave with dozens of images you created. 

This will be a solid 10 hours of light painting theory, inspiration and ultimately you creating your own light painting images. There will be a full suite of light painting tools on hand for you to experiment with.
