GLORIOUS DAYS

With close to 100 workshops  over 3 days and 30+ of Australia’s best photographers and instructors, BFOP 2022 is set to be bigger, better, crazier and more chaotic than EVER!

We’re delivering you workshops in nearly every genre of photography that you can think of alongside our presentations stages and special events from our brand sponsors. If you’ve been to BFOP before you don’t need to read on, just hit the ‘checkout’ button and be done with it because you know this will be the weekend to define 2022!

Such a diverse range of top notch presenters - there is something for everyone. It was such fun to be involved and I learnt so many new things. Thanks for all your hard work and expertise. You are all awesome!

Best photography festival in OZ, if photography is your passion you need to get along. Big thanks to all the organisers and the event sponsors who help put together a great event. But the biggest shout-out is to the amazing photographers and creatives who very generously give their time and openly share their knowledge.

New to BFOP? Well what can I say? Hmmm. BFOP was born out of the love of photography, an incredible community of professional photographers and a bet Nick Fletcher made over a large quantity of beer. We’re not your regular photography festival, ditching the stuffiness and stuffing it with good old fashion fun and shenanigans whilst learning nearly anything you want to know about photography from Australia’s best. There is a main marquee that hosts presentations from our instructors from sunrise to sunset, as well as nearly 100 workshops to choose from delivered by our team of over 30 instructors. The evenings are all about community, with booze filled shenanigans, prizes, games and a whole lot of fun on the main stage of the marquee.
