Private Workshops are ideal for those who already own a camera, and want to learn more specifically how it works. These workshops are all about mastering what you have. If you already have some experience in Photography, and simply want to further develop it- this is defiantly the road for you! Private Workshops are scheduled at your convenience 1-on-1 style with our lead photographers. To book a Private Workshop, please fill out the form below for availability or book directly online.
What do your workshops look like?
At this time, we offer two forms of workshops. Private, or Group. In Private workshops, we work 1-on-1 with clients to learn the cameras they already own, at a pace that works best for them. With Shared classes, we teach general photography knowledge to aid one on their creative venture!
Private Workshops? That sounds expensive!
Fortunately we keep the cost of our workshop very reasonable. Reality is, I had an amazing mentor at one point who taught me everything I know- and I strongly feel that everyone deserves the chance to have a guide in their learning journey. Ive been teaching photography for awhile now, and I'm comfortable enough with it to pass on what I know. It's my turn to share!
Where are your workshops located?
It depends on the workshop! Most of our workshops will be based out of our studio on the Milford Oval, unless we are hired to privately to travel off site for a workshop. We do (in the nice weather) take short walking trips from the studio out and about (such as on the oval) to learn about outdoor photography.

Hello! Im Stephanie. Im the owner of Sweet Aperture LLC, and also the Lead Photographer. Ive been mentoring and teaching photography to aspiring photographers for a few years now!
Many people think it's the camera that makes a good photographer. Reality is, thats not true. Ive seen some amazing photographers using nothing more than a cell phone- or even a toy camera!
