With Professional Travel Photographer and The West Travel Editor Stephen Scourfield and The West Travel Journalist William Yeoman



Albany CBD


Free event (booking required)

Phones put photography in our pocket.


Phone cameras have made huge advances in quality, freeing us up to be creative, and Maritime PhotoWalks with Phones will fully explore that.

Join The West Australian Newspaper’s specialist travel photographers Stephen Scourfield and William Yeoman to learn techniques, tips and trick, but, more importantly, they will lead and train your eye and unleash your creativity.

Each PhotoWalks with Phones group will be split in two, to help us focus on the feature of their particular phone’s camera.


There will be specific advice for both Apple IOS (iPhone) and Android (Samsung etc.) systems.

Learn to get the best from exposure and focus controls, portrait and pano, using original and colour modes.

Everyone will go home with a great PhotoWalks With Phones Guide full of tips - there’s more to these phone cameras than you might imagine.

You know your phone can take great photos. Let us help you make great pictures.
