About

It is all about cinematography. Only. You won’t have to hold the microphone or help with the catering to advance your career in the camera department. The aim of ShotClass is to solely focus on the details and nuance of cinematography that allows participants the best opportunity to learn its art and technique at the highest level.

ShotClass Leaders and Legends

The DPs who lead the classes are award-winning, highly regarded professionals who may have shot one of your favourite cinematographic masterpieces. Camera Crew instructors have vast experience and can be relied upon to provide first rate knowledge and set-savvy smarts. Top level professional Gaffers, Grips and Camera Crew are there to support the instructor during the classes and share their experience with you too. All cameras, lenses, lighting, grip equipment & accessories are the best brands and most popular choices on today’s sets. Our suppliers and supporters also supply the industry’s foremost productions.

Our connections run deep. Those who instruct and demonstrate for us are from an elite group of practitioners. They are recognised industry leaders and legends with enviable careers. They are current and up-to-date with modern cinematography trends and best practice.

Our interactive ShotClass events allow the knowledge to go both ways. We can all learn from one another. We all have something good to share. ShotClass curates. That’s what makes the standard of our Intensives and Masterclasses world-class.

What can you expect from ShotClass?

Launch your career as an emerging DP. Or add to your skillset and ability as an experienced DP. Climb the ladder up the camera department. Discover new methods. Improve your employability. Add specialities to your resumé. Trial processes and take risks you can’t do on set. We share the depth of knowledge attained by both teachers and participants by comparing notes and experiences during relaxed conversation. Classes offer a great opportunity to meet new crew who you may want to work with in the future – and you’ll have first-hand experience watching the way they work. And you may leave a good impression with somebody that could lead to a new project for you.

ShotClass can lead to lifelong friendships and professional relationships. It will feel like you’re part of an exclusive club. Which you kind of are.

Classes are intended for people 18 years +, only. If you are aged 16 or 17 years old and are interested in attending, please contact ShotClass to enquire about how this may be possible.

I hope you find the chance to engage with ShotClass. I’m confident it will be rewarding. We are based in Melbourne, Australia. Some events will be staged in other major cities in the near future.

Remember, for most participants working in the industry, our events are Tax Deductible, so you could end up effectively paying nothing to build your knowledge and gain more work. Check with your Tax Agent or Accountant. Find out more here.
