Join Jay for a day exploring the Wonder of Waterfalls in the Blue Mountains

About the event

Come and join Jay for a 1 day workshop exploring the Wonder of Waterfalls in the Blue Mountains, where you will be guided to the base of some of the best falls in the area and coached on capturing flowing water using long exposure techniques, filters, and composition.
