Twin Island Adventure
Lady Elliot & Fraser Island Photo Workshop
November 16/24, 2018
We have taken numerous groups to these beautiful islands. We can say that we are offering a stunning 9 day escape from civilization. We guarantee you amazing photo opportunities and the best tuition. This event suits any experience from beginners to advanced and non photographic partners love the ‘island life’.
FRASER ISLAND – is the largest sand island in the world. It is incredible due to the diversity of environments and the nature available. This opens up a lot of photographic subjects to shoot.
LADY ELLIOT ISLAND – is one of the most photogenic nature locations on earth! We base ourselves at the islands resort. This is the perfect location to target – The Great Barrier Reef, thousands of nesting birds, sea turtles and much more. We shoot a very wide range of subjects from wildlife to macro and stunning creative images.
Workshops start at the basics and progress to unique techniques and digital skills. You have access to an international class tutor throughout the working day. Your tutor will target specific opportunities and allow quality time also for your questions and for you to enjoy and explore both islands. You do not need an under water camera. Reef shoes are supplied. You will be amazed at what you will shoot…
Join us on this great ‘life experience’ photo adventure…
