What goals are you trying to achieve in photography? This is a key starting point as we endeavour to help you understand everything from equipment to techniques, to using those fantastic results. We are a huge believer in KISS. Keep It Simple Shooter, a concept that Darran first started teaching in 1981. It allows any photographer of any interest to create fantastic images within a short period of time. We combine this teaching method with fantastic field experiences, where you can learn about photography and a destination, in a personalised small group adventure. As a family business, our work ethic is simple, we put your photo interests first!
Is opportunity important? We take you straight to the photographic locations that we know will offer you the most amazing images and experiences. Our carefully crafted itineraries help to maximise your adventures, along with our world class local operators and guides. This is combined with hand picked accommodation, tasty meals and the chance to build bonds with like- minded people. We offer this from short two day workshops in Australia, to exotic locations around the world.
Our adventures see around a 50% booking rate of return photog- raphers and non photographic partners per trip. Photogra- phers like Bill Madden, just completing his 66th event with us and Fran Gass her 45th event, join us for the magical opportunities that we create. We have a long list of other adventurers who have also joined us on numerous trips.
Darran Leal has led over 400 photo events world wide. His experience and dedication to helping all photographers is legendary. Son’s Pearce and Frazer have completed traineeships and have guided photographers around the world. Julia is the backbone of the business and is famous for her prompt replies, help and pleasant nature. Importantly, World Photo Adventures is fully covered by Tour Operator Insurance. This is not standard travel insurance and is not available until a rigorous check of a businesses procedures and use of travel operators is made. Darran and Julia have been running photo adventures for over 30 years and would love to offer you the best of our beautiful planet.
