Gold Coast: Grab your kids and join me for a photography workshop!

Fat Mum Slim /

Hello. Happy Friday!

How has your week been? Mine has been eventful! Nothing major, but lots of small things happening, and kids being sick. I’ve kinda got to the point that I don’t really care. Lulu has taken ownership of one of my lipsticks and I fear for our walls. I’ll find her, once I finish this, of course. Priorities!

I had a shoot this morning to get some new photos for my blog. Once I got home, I snapped a selfie or two. Here’s {poor under-the-weather} Lulu and I.

You would have laughed at my selfie situation this morning. I have my Olympus camera on top of a chair and two boxes, on top of my table. And with the OM-D E-M10 you can link it with your phone, and use your phone as a remote. It was very handy. With the lunches I hosted last year, and this year too, we’ve showed a little bit of this functionality, which always wows the pants off of my guests.

Which also brings me to this next topic. I mentioned last week that Olympus, Rachel Devine and myself were doing more lunches around Australia. Today I want to kick off an invite to you lovely readers and your children to do lunchy workshop on the Gold Coast.

Are you keen?

This is my new baby. The OM-D E-M10 Mark II. I’ll share more about it in a later post.

The lunches I’m hosting with Olympus and Rachel this year are all about passing on the passion of photography to our kids. I love sharing a lot of photography with Lacey, and I’m sure it will be passed on to Lulu too when she’s a little older. At our last workshop 15 years and their kids spent the day learning about photography, and putting it in to action. It was so beautiful to see the joy in their faces when they were getting creative.

We’ll be hosting the Gold Coast lunch at one of my favourite places, QT in Surfers Paradise. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy delicious food, and to take photos of all the quirky things they have around. Their garden is currently home to a few beautiful flamingoes.

Here’s all the details:

WHEN: Thursday 24th September {School Holidays!}

WHERE: QT Hotel, Surfers Paradise

TIME: 11am until 2pm

WHAT: You, and your child, learning cool stuff about photography. There’s goodie bags to take home, good food to be eaten, little gifts and good times to be had.

If you’d love to join us, simply leave a comment below answering the following question: What’s your favourite thing to do with your kid/s? And why?

Competition closes September 15th at noon. Lucky guests will be notified by email. Guests must make their own way to the event. Lunch is on us!

I look forward to meeting you and your kids, and having fun with you!
