Leica Akademie Australia

For Photographers, by Photographers. Any camera, any level of ability.

Leica Akademie Australia continues Leica’s long tradition of high quality photographic education through both experiential events as well as seminars, all offered in cities across Australia. Headed by Principal Instructor Nick Rains, the Akademie’s goal is to increase the fun and enjoyment of photography, expand photographic knowledge and bring the total Leica experience to a new generation of photographers. Whether you are a user of another camera system, an experienced Leica photographer or you are just starting out, there is no better way to improve your photography than with the Leica Akademie. The Akademie offers a wide range of workshops and photographic trips throughout the year.



Featured Events




The tour gave me the ability to try out some unbelievable Leica equipment in the field and now I’m hooked. The best recommendation I can give is that if you do the same thing next year, I will be there too!

Tom McC – Rajasthan 2015

“I’m really surprised by the amount of pics that I absolutely LOVED from today! What great fun and a whole new shooting experience!”

Leah K – Editorial Portraits Workshop, Perth

“In the past I have attended a couple of similar workshops but The Kimberley one was the best in all aspects .The instructors were very friendly, helpful and ready to give advice at any time, the accomodation and food was the first class, the agenda of shooting and lectures was very useful. I learned a lot and enjoyed the company of nice people and am looking forward for a new workshop.”

Konstantin B – Kimberley Experience

“Thank you very much for an excellent day on Saturday. I learned a great deal about digital black and white but also a good deal more from all the sidelines we found ourselves discussing. In addition it was really enjoyable; there was also a pleasant break over lunchtime. Thank you for the superb and complete notes which I downloaded today.”

Jane B – Digital B+W Workshop

“Just a short note to thank you and the rest of the team for today. Model was gorgeous and takes great photos. This would have to be one of the best courses that I have ever been on. The use of natural light was fantastic. I have a lot to learn and the collective experience in the room was immense. I’ll be back!”

Michael D – Available Light Portraits

“You clarified a lot of misconceptions about depth of field and “exposure”. I had struggled with histograms but you explained the purpose of histograms in such a way that even a novice like myself can now use histograms etc. to the best advantage. Your manner of instruction and lecture notes were spot-on, as were your pictures.”
