Hi, I’m Dani Bachinger, the gal behind Be Your OWN Photographer…
I’d describe myself as very creative by nature, having been involved in Painting, Photography, Acting, TV Documentary Host/Producer, Radio Producer, featured in many TV advertisements, starred in an Amity Affliction Music Video, and most recently, was chosen to provide the Artwork for the Lord Mayor’s Business Awards.
In the past I used to deliver IT software training to staff and athletes at the Australian Sports Commission in Canberra.
A few years ago I decided to return to my passion of training, but with a twist. I created Social Media Workshops, (including Smartphone Photography, Instagram Planning and Flat lay lessons), designed to get people confident in taking charge of their OWN photography for their own Social Media accounts.
I had a genuine desire to help people create magical photos of their family and friends and for entrepenuers to jazz up their FB or Insta feeds.
I have also photographed numerous community events such as Pink’d Up Racecourse Road, Neighbourhood Day and Oriel Park (to name a few).
I consider Smartphone Photography to be a blend between technology (understanding the ins and outs of the mobile device), understanding Social Media Platforms and Apps, and learning a photographer’s mindset (the creative side).
With my background in IT, combined with my love of the arts, these smartphone workshops were born.
These workshops are held in Brisbane. They’re a lot of fun and have you implementing what you’ve learnt immediately!
