Photography & Camera Workshops – Melbourne

Camera and Photography Workshops – Melbourne


Do you own an expensive camera and don’t know how to use it?

Then you would love this one day workshop.

We will cover everything from what all those numbers and letters on your camera & lens mean to Photography concepts and the art of creating visually stunning images, including an insight into post processing.

These small groups (max 8 people) are aimed to be fun and use easy to grasp concepts so that you can enjoy capturing the surrounding beauty and not worry about memorizing technical jargon.  After all, the best photographs are those seen with the eye and felt with the heart – I’m just there to help you master your tool.

Follow my blog to see some of the uplifting adventures and photo opportunities you can expect to have on your travels, if you join me internationally.

What previous people have said 

“CJ gave me the understanding, courage and support I needed to take my dusty SLR off the shelf, off Auto mode and into Manual mode where I was launched into being able to take perfectly composed shots. A must for anyone of any ability to fall in love with their cameras all over again.”  ~ Sarah C. 

“Chamilka’s workshop was well thought out with plenty of useful information. She is very knowledgeable, approachable and patient with every person in our group. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to friends and family looking to enhance their photography skills.”  ~ Jacinta A. 

“I would highly recommend a photography workshop with Chamilka! Within the first few hours, I was able  to switch off from auto mode and take some beautiful photos on the manual settings. Chamilka’s enthusiasm is infectious, and her ability to convey her  knowledge to a novice like me, made it such an enjoyable experience. ”  ~ Rebecca W. 

“I already knew the fundamentals but the one on one guidance that Chamilka gave me took my photos to the next level”  ~ Teresa P.

About Chamilka (CJ)

Chamilka Jayawardana (affectionately known as CJ to all those around her) is a Professional Photographer based in Melbourne Australia. Accredited with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), Chamilka founded CJ Photography in 2010, which specialises in Maternity, Newborn, Children and Family Portraiture. Inspired by her children, her photography aims to capture authenticity, feeling and above all stories - intangible things that can be revisited long after the moment has passed. CJ Photography has since moved into Weddings and Commercial works as well. An equally personal driving force behind her second venture, CJ Photo Escapes, has been her cultural background and her desire to give back to the country she was born and lived in during her early years. Fluent in English and spoken Singhalese, CJ has chosen to combine her love for photography along with her love for Sri Lanka and its beautiful people, to share with the astute traveler this quaint part of the world through the eyes of the lens.
