Lightning Storm

Photography Workshop

Are you fascinated by the spectacular fireworks that nature puts on display, but unsure of how, when, and where to capture them through your lens? Look no further than this special workshop, led by renowned photographer Ari Rex.



Photographing storms can be a perilous pursuit if not done correctly. With Ari as your guide, you'll learn how to safely shoot during a storm, following a step-by-step process to capture awe-inspiring images. Canberra, Australia is renowned for its lightning storms, making it one of the best locations in the country for this type of photography. Knowing when and how to photograph these storms is essential to capturing their magnificence.

It's important to note that this workshop will be held for approximately three hours during the sunset or twilight hours, and not during a lightning storm. While Ari is happy to share his knowledge and expertise, he cannot assume responsibility for your safety if you choose to undertake photography during an active storm. Any such photography is at your own risk.

Join this workshop to gain the skills and knowledge needed to capture some of nature's most breathtaking displays, under the guidance of a seasoned professional.
