Be immersed in a wintry location shoot in Kurnell as photographer Steve Baccon and his crew demonstrate how to use Sunbounce reflectors and scrims with available daylight to capture winter lifestyle fashion imagery.
Guests will meet early morning at SUNSTUDIOS for a light breakfast before boarding a van to join the crew at the location.
Participants will also learn the ins and outs of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and gain insight into Baccon’s versatile lens collection and how he approaches each job.
The best way to learn is to get hands on, so after set up, participants will have the opportunity to shoot the action themselves and put into practice the morning’s learnings, informed by Baccon’s 25 years of professional experience.
After the shoot, the van will take participants back to SUNSTUDIOS for refreshments and to go over the images.

About Steve Baccon
Shooting for almost 25 years, Baccon is living his dream. With an immense passion for the world of photography and what it brings, Steve loves creating and capturing emotion – connecting people through an image. Inspired by Richard Avedon and Richard Bailey, Steve strives to create perennial work that is influential and evokes sentiment. His style is simple yet engagaing and draws on aspects of whatever moment and situation he is put in to approach the brief with his own creative direction.
He has worked with a diverse range of personalities, which is what he loves. Such subjects include Naomi Watts, Powderfinger, Nicole Kidman, Ben Lee, Andrew Denton, Matt Skinner and clients such as Network Ten, One Teaspoon and Billabong amongst an extensive list of others. He has done covers for Rolling Stone and Sunday Life Magazine as well as shooting various sports at the 2000 Olympics. Starting his career as a cadet photographer at Fairfax Media, he learnt the disciplines of getting as much technically right and not relying heavily on post work. Steve’s secret is to put in a lot of effort to providing a tranquil and comfortable atmosphere and his friendly, down to earth persona makes this possible. Steve published his first book last December with Harper Collins. ‘Expressions’ is a collection of portraits that is a testament to the intimate relationship Baccon finds with his subjects. If Steve’s not working, he’s either with his family or surfing, another passion, for which he’s had an immense love for since he was 13.
