We'll meet in the Hyams Beach carpark and then take a short walk along the beach and discuss the basics of good photography as well as a few tricks Peter has learned after photographing literally hundreds of beaches. You'll receive some one-on-one coaching to help you capture that perfect shot. You'll also have time to practice the art of the 'beach selfie' with some expert guidance! Leaving Hyams Beach, Peter will take you across the headland to Chinamans Beach, again offering technical and practical photography tips. Leaving Chinamans Beach you're free to continue along the White Sands Walk to Greenfield Beach and experiment further. All participants in the class will receive a free copy of the South Coast beach guidebook 'Beaches of Jervis Bay, Kiama and the Shoalhaven' valued at $29.95.

We start the workshop and discussion on the white sands of iconic Hyams Beach before walking to nearby Chinamans Beach. After spending time on Chinamans Beach you can continue on the along the White Sands Walk to Greenfield Beach.
You can wear beach gear but as we will be walking on sand and across the headland to Chinamans Beach it might be best to wear some enclosed footwear. Also please come prepared for a day on the beach - wear sunscreen and a hat!
