Leica Akademie Australia expands Leica’s long tradition of high quality photographic education with the announcement of Open Day 2022, an educational and immersive series of free events held in Melbourne and Sydney this July.

Featuring an impressive line-up of world-renowned photographers, Leica Akademie Open Day 2022 invites camera enthusiasts of all experience levels to be inspired and learn tips and tricks that will take their photography to new heights.

“We are delighted to open our Leica Akademie doors to professional photographers, enthusiasts, fans and beginners alike as part of our Open Days. We are incredibly fortunate to collaborate with talented and world-leading photographers, and during these Open Days they will share valuable insight into their respective worlds of photography. Whether it be street photography, storm chasing, the art of sneakers or capturing wonders of the world – there is something to cater for every interest and skill level at Open Day 2022. Tickets are already booking up fast so we invite those interested to register their place as soon as possible.”Ryan Williams, Managing Director, Leica Camera Australia

The Leica Akademie Open Days will run in Sydney on 16-17 July 2022, and in Melbourne on 23-24 July 2022. With 12 free sessions running for 45 minutes each across the two-day events, the public is invited to book into individual sessions. Each session is led by one of Leica Camera’s award-winning photography ambassadors, honing in on various specialty areas of photography.

For instance, you can learn about capturing images of war with leading photographer, artist and documentary filmmaker, Stephen Dupont, and see a rare preview of his latest assignment in Ukraine. He will draw on his immense experiences in varied hostile territories over his career and discuss bringing images, and the stories behind them, to the world.

You can also take to the streets with Jesse Marlow through an introductory street photography session which will see participants roaming hidden corners of Sydney and Melbourne alongside Jesse as he shares his top tips for capturing powerful street photography images.

Another session is sure to get the blood pumping as an adventure photographer, Krystle Wright, recounts her latest assignment chasing extreme weather conditions across the USA. The riveting session will reveal peerless insights and is an opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best adventure photographers and directors.

Alternatively, as sneaker culture continues to permeate fashion and lifestyle circles, a session with Kristian Dowling will provide practical advice and tips for shooting sneakers spanning creative strategy, composition and lighting.

The Leica Akademie Open Days are an extension of Leica Akademie, which provides high-quality photographic education through both experiential events as well as seminars, all offered in cities across Australia. Headed by Principal Instructor Nick Rains, the Akademie’s goal is to increase the fun and enjoyment of photography, expand photographic knowledge and bring the total Leica experience to a new generation of photographers. Whether a user of another camera system, an experienced Leica photographer or a beginner, all are welcome to improve their photography skills with the Leica Akademie.
