ABOUT
US

We organise small group street photography workshops and adventures aimed at anyone with a passion for photography! Whether you are an absolute beginner, more advanced, or a professional photographer in any field - let us show you and your camera our favourite cities; you'll save yourself hours of research time, learn loads, get to meet some really cool people, and spend the whole day making pictures. We also do online stuff, private groups and 1-1 sessions.

The Photo Weekender is created and operated by Polly Rusyn (yes it’s me writing in the third person - hello there!). Polly is a pro photographer, ex adventure travel tour leader, and former travel industry commercial product manager with heaps of experience (for multiple award winning tour operators). The Photo Weekender is the love child of her passions for photography and travel. Polly is an Official Fujifilm X-Photographer and a National Geographic Traveller Masterclass speaker, and is one of 100 women published in the Women Street Photographers (2021) book. Her work has been exhibited internationally, and published both online and in print magazines. Her love of cheese is well documented, and she is known to laugh at her own jokes without shame. All photos on this website (other than in participant galleries and slideshows) have been made by Polly.

WORKSHOP TESTIMONIALS

Polly is super helpful and encouraging and giving lots of tips and tricks. The organisation was perfect as always! Polly really knows places for great photography with great backgrounds and interesting scenery. I also enjoyed working more with manual mode which made me think more of what I wanted to achieve (at least I tried to). Thank you Polly for an inspiring workshop and so much fun to learn new things!  BETTINA  B.
