Kingsley first started taking photographs in his early twenties when a magazine editor said "you know you could really save us some money if you could take some pictures to go with your stories". That began a 30 year on-again/off-again love affair with photography that has seen him published in magazines, books, online and even on the occasional billboard. He's completely self taught. This lack of formal photography training probably helps him understand the plight of the beginning photographer more than most. He's a published author, experienced teacher and seminar presenter in his non photographic life too; and 78% of his jokes are funny.
Living in WA, the problem is not finding a good sunset, for we are surely blessed with some of the most vivid and dramatic sunsets in the world. The problem is convincing your friends from other parts of the world that the picture you just took is real and not photoshopped. The problem also though, is composing the picture so that it has depth, interest and context so that your sunset picture isn’t lost in the sameness of thousands of phone pictures of the same sunset. In this two hour meetup we’ll learn to apply the basic rules of composition to sunsets, and then how to break them. We’ll also learn a few other tricks like using the foreground, reflections, creating action in your shots and how to make those shots seem more surreal and abstract.
This meetup will be a one of the best sunset spots along our little piece of coast – Doddi’s beach.

Aaron is an accomplished freelance photographer who has had a passion (more like obsession) with photography ever since he received his first camera on his 17th birthday.
Due to his love and fascination for the natural world, Aaron mainly focusses his lens on wildlife and landscapes. More often than not, you will find him laying down amongst the muck somewhere, photographing critters at sunrise.
As a self taught photographer, he understands the hundreds of questions that runs through the head of an emerging photographer. Yet, he has a knack for breaking down sometimes complex topics into ways that anyone can understand!
