Photography For Everydays Storytelling

With Camille Santiago

Learn how to capture the everyday, better.

At Photography for Everyday Storytelling, we’ll talk about composition & framing, practising mindfulness in photography and more, so that you can create your best photograph in any moment. This also includes a refresher on the basics of manual shooting.

If you’ve already attended Photography Basics and you’re hungry for more, this workshop brings that theory into creative practice!


Basic photography knowledge is recommended. A recap on technical terms such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO is given at the start of class, as this workshop provides practice for shooting in manual.

Need to learn the basics? You can attend our next Photography Basics Workshop, then come back for Everyday Storytelling!

*Shooting in manual is not 100% required or mandatory, but this workshop is structured for dSLRs and cameras with manual settings, so you’ll get the most out of this workshop if you bring a camera that has manual modes


Camille Santiago is a Brisbane-based photographer, videographer and graphic designer. Self-taught in photography from the age of 13, Camille continually works to refine her craft and has worked with fellow creatives such as Jasmine Dowling and Dominique Falla, as well as photographed creative conferences such as Typism and Analogue/Digital.

Passionate about the art of visual storytelling and photographing the beauty of the everyday, Camille aims to honestly capture moments, people and places in a way that quietly conveys their essence and hopes to share this skill with others.
