Highly recommended to anyone who is serious and keen to improve on their wedding photography. The topics touched on will not just help to improve your ability to shoot but your ability to look out for certain areas in the business of selling your work as well.

"Special Assistant rate: Bring your assistant for only $500 SGD, if coming with full paying attendee."

Will there be any difference between what a photographer and an assistant can get during the workshop? As in, does the assistant get to take pictures and have his pictures reviewed, etc etc?

amachi : I went over to australia last year with my girlfriend to attend his workshop and Ryan does not treat assistants and photographers differently. As long as you are part of the workshop, he treats everybody equally!

My girlfriend also shoots together with me and her works get commented on as well during the workshop. The special assistant rate is offered for those interested who are in the same company so as to make the cost cheaper for them. So in a nut shell, Ryan will get you to shoot and he will critique your work as well.

The good part is that now, local photographers can save on flight and accomodations since he is flying in to share his knowledge, and not just him alone because his Dad, Martin Schembri who is a well respected veteran in the industry with tons of experience will be sharing as well. Ryan's wife who has been awarded commercial photographer of the year NSW is also coming to talk and after attending the workshop last year in Australia, i have benefitted from the program as well. The only sad thing is if i know they are coming over this year i could have saved my air ticket and hotel cost! :bsmilie:

I just wanted to say I attended a workshop in Sydney last year in August and found it really great. I had never been on one of their workshops before but found it really fantastic.
Not only are Martin, Ryan and Jess great people, but they are really approachable, and teach in a way all levels of photographers can relate to what they are teaching.
I have found that since then my photograph has moved to a new level and continues to do so as I put into practice all I was taught.
We each received individual time with both Martin and Ryan to talk about the areas we each felt we needed to improve in our photography. They critiqued all our work so we received feedback straight away on what we could improve and also what we were already doing well.
Being able to actually shoot and not just take notes was fantastic and Jess's retouching was def a highlight for me as I know there is a massive amount of Photoshop skills I still am working on.
I would definitely do another workshop with Martin, Ryan and Jess as I have used everything they taught every day in my photography.
Sounds like a bit of a sell! :) But I just wanted to share my own experiences with them all and their workshops!
Cheers :D

Hi Fellow Photogs,

I have another photog that is looking for any interested photog to pair-up for the workshop.

Please PM or sms 9644 0858.


Hi guys!

We received quite a number of PM regarding the deposits and payment method. A couple of answers to the questions.

We are not the speakers for the workshop. We are friends of the Schembri's and we are helping them with the workshop details so please do not make payment to us.

Slots are really limited because Ryan wants to keep the class small and managable and also so that he has time to speak to participants individually and see what is their issues and problems they are facing. So far the ball park figure he has indicated is about 20 participants.

To make payment and see his works as well as what else he has to offer, this is the site to go to.


Apologies too that we were unable to reply as quickly because we are often out on a shoot and we dont check back forums as much as we love to. Thanks for understanding! :)

Singapore will be the only location in Asia that they are planning for this year. Miss it thats it.
