During the COVID lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, I ran a series of very popular Virtual Workshops via Zoom. I am now offering six of these Workshops as videos at the significantly-discounted rate of AUD$25ea. Each video is 90min-2hours long, with support documentation provided by email.
I plan to re-commence in-person Workshops in the future, but my partner Matt Palmer and I have recently opened our Alpine Light Gallery in Bright, so Workshops are "on hold" until our Gallery is established. If you wish to stay updated on when my in-person Workshops will re-commence, please subscribe to my email newsletter! https://www.miekeboynton.com/email-subscription

"Mieke Boynton's video tutorials on abstract photography are fantastic. They cover numerous aspects of abstract photography from basics like definitions to aerial photography, oil and water, smoke, natural and urban abstracts and more. They include detail about techniques and basic processing. The videos are clearly presented and are a great and easy way to expand a photographer's horizons and expertise. They are also very reasonably priced. I highly recommend them!"
“I have completed 3 of Mieke's online workshops. I have loved every one and have learned a lot from each. Mieke has so much knowledge to share and she shares it beautifully. As well as being an award winning photographer, she is a teacher and has a background in art, and all of these come through in her workshops. Now when I pick up the camera I hear Mieke's voice - about composition, light, shadows, symmetry ... I can't recommend Mieke's workshops highly enough!”
"I highly recommend Mieke's video workshops, having now completed them all. They are inspiring, easy to follow, and most informative. The two Creative Abstract workshops provided endless photographic opportunities during times when it was not possible to venture out."
"As a very amateur photographer I first saw Mieke give a presentation to a camera club in 2018. I found that she explained complex photographic theories in simple terms. The video workshop follows these principles. They are a great way to learn as you can watch the video, follow with the course notes, pause the video and make adjustments to your camera in the comfort of your home. I purchased:
• Composition in Landscape Photography,
• Black and White Photography Essentials, and
• Nailing the Focus in Landscape Photography.
I found the three video courses extremely informative and would highly recommend them to any one wishing to improve their photography."
"I am generally a children/action photographer, and have had my eyes opened up to landscape photography. Mieke has proven content knowledge and also knows how to communicate it so you don't feel like you are in a photography-101 funpack. Mieke has a very gentle and easy to listen to Australian accent, it guides you through the workshop content as if you were walking through a botanical garden ready to shoot a roll of film.
I got some of these videos as a gift, I would 10/10 recommend to gift to anyone who wants to develop their skills further."
"I watched 5 of Mieke's videos and found them extremely helpful. The videos also come with notes which are a great ongoing resource. Mieke is a very engaging speaker and the videos are well organised and suitable for photographers with varying levels of expertise. I would recommend them wholeheartedly."
“I wish I'd found Mieke's workshops sooner. Loved the Waterfalls/Seascapes and Night Photography workshop - Mieke shares so much information in a concise, easy to understand way. Talented, inspiring and encouraging - I've aready signed up for another course and can't wait to get out there and practise. Thank you Mieke."
"I have recently completed a few of Mieke's online workshops and they are just fantastic. Well organized, concise and full of very good information that is easy to understand. It has been wonderful to refresh and to learn so much more. I would happily recommend Mieke's workshops to any photographer.”
"I bought the Abstract photography course as I want to diversify my skills.
I love it. Mieke teaches many different techniques in a simple way that everybody can understand.
The support was really good too. Always answering my e-mails. Can’t wait to buy the other courses!"
"Another outstanding workshop from Mieke (my third). Mieke is both a very talented photographer but possibly more importantly for me she is a great teacher. She is able to structure her courses to ensure participants come away with great ideas and an improved skill set. Thanks again."
INDIVIDUAL 1hr PHOTOGRAPHY TUTORIALS
"A tutorial with Mieke is a wonderful way to get some targeted feedback on your images. She is always prepared for our time together and has given me honest advice on the strength of my images. Mieke has not only highlighted my strengths & weaknesses she is constantly revealing where I should ‘focus’ next on my creative journey. She has helped me understand how competitions can help this process but also how to choose which ones to enter. I love Mieke’s attention to detail and am grateful for her genuine concern and encouragement for my work. Her positive energy, her passion for her photography and her honesty with my work are just a few of the reasons why I keep coming back for more 1on1 tutorials. If you are looking for a mentor, then I can sincerely recommend Mieke as a tutor and guarantee you will not be disappointed."
"Living in a regional area I have found Mieke’s online workshops & tutorial sessions a Godsend. You get to learn from one of Australia’s leading landscape photographers in the comfort of your own home. Mieke is a fantastic educator & her eye for detail has helped me improve my own photography & post production immensely. I would recommend her tutorial sessions to anyone who is looking to take their photography to the next level."
" I recently attended one of Mieke's one on one tutorial sessions. I was immediately impressed that Mieke asked for 10 -12 images a week in advance, so we had something very specific and personal to discuss. I deliberately chose some images which I thought were terrific and others which I wanted some advice on. I was surprised by what Mieke saw in the images that I hadn’t seen. We then discussed each image, my purpose in taking it and suggestions for improvement. Quite a remarkable session which opened my eyes to some of the habits I had developed over the years and of which I was totally unaware. My new mantra is to look AND see."
INDIVIDUAL 2-hr WORKSHOPS
(Click on the title/image to learn more about the Workshop)
“I have just done the beginners workshop and I learnt so much, the fact that Mieke had taken the time to research my camera so she could tell me EXACTLY what settings to use - the notes to accompany the zoom session were exceptional. I can't wait to do another one and HIGHLY recommend any of her sessions! Money well spent!”
“I recently completed Mieke’s workshop on Entering Photo Competitions and learnt a lot from this well-researched and clearly presented online session. Mieke has a wonderful way of teaching and sharing information and the links and notes she provides afterwards are also very useful. If you are confused about which photography competitions to enter, how to go about getting honours and why you might consider entering competitions, I would encourage you to take this class."
