Second Masterclass of 2011 – Rottnest Island

‘the Artist’s Eye’.

Tony Hewitt, AIPP Grand Master Photographer, Hon Fellow AIPP, and Denis Glennon AO, Member AIPP, present the third in their Masterclass series “The Evolution of the Photographer”.
The venue for this Masterclass is, again, one of Western Australia’s jewels of nature – Rottnest Island.

The Masterclass is scheduled for Sat 18th & Sun 19th June 2011, when we can experience the absence of the larger summer crowds and the different weather patterns of the island’s winter season. 


  • Seeing through the eyes of a Grand Master Photographer as he reveals images that others might miss
  • Continuing the evolution of “You” the photographer
  • Discovering the similarities of thought between the artist and the photographer as each prepares to create a painting or an image
  • Learn from a distinguished West Australian artist  as she reveals the part her “inner eye” plays in the process of exploring light, environment, seascapes, landscapes, heritage architecture, flora and fauna of the island as subject matters for her art
  • Looking over the shoulder of the artist as she explains how her diversity of approach and subtle handling of her subject matter through the medium of water colour, draw inspiration from the many moods of the fragile nature of the Australian landscape about which she is passionate; the similarities with the photography of nature will astound you
  • Develop your own “Artist’s Eye” and learn to photograph in your mind’s eye first
  • Strengthening the connection between unbridled imagination, child-like curiosity, self-confidence and capture (or discerning when not to press the shutter)
  • Exploring the simplicity of good composition and seeking and finding the elusive veil in which great photographs come cloaked, whether they be portraits, landscapes, seascapes or other
  • Looking over the shoulder of a Grand Master Photographer as he “paints with pixels” to produce award winning fine art photography
  • Enter the wonderful wide world of panoramic photography using simple stitching techniques to create your own stunning seascapes of the best bays on the island
  • Participate in sunrise and sunset shoots as we discover the unique beauty and moods of Rottnest
