Learn how to take stunning architecture photos with award-winning photographer Rocco Ancora, as he leads our photo walk in Melbourne.

Our day started in the late afternoon at Melbourne's Exhibition Centre, as the sun slowly set over the city. Photographers got their hands on a range of Nikon equipment before hitting the road with Rocco. Along the route, Rocco gave our photo walkers tips and tricks on how to best capture Melbourne's stunning skyline and buildings.

Watch the video below to find out how to take great architectural photos. Then, take a look at the results from our participants, in the gallery, to see how they integrated Rocco's tips into their work.

To find out more about Rocco's artistic motivations and his tips for beginners, watch our interview here.
