Flinders Island Photographic Workshop March16th – 19th 2011

A wonderful workshop has just been completed on the Scenically beautiful Flinders Island. Eight participants enjoyed the great hospitality of our hosts Ken and Carolyn at Vistas Lodge. It was a delight to come back from an intensive day out shooting the Coastlines and mountains of this wild spectacular Island to then sit, unwind and relax over a glass of red (or two)  Four Days of photographic delights and much energy was used in rock-hopping our way over to the perfect location for photography. The group went out on two early morning dawn starts with some amazing images taken.
We also walked into rainforest to see the lovely fern gullies and creeks, drove to two lookouts for sub alpine images and scrambled over countless huge pink granite boulders for the elusive shot!

As this Island lies on the Eastern side of Bass Strait it often gets winds from the South East. Though they don’t deter any determined photographer it is nice to have calm weather. I run workshops in late March and April for this very reason, as the weather is usually very stable…We were very fortunate that three of our days there was very little wind which made for pleasant forays indeed.The weather was kind and we had a superb mix of blue skies and passing clouds. At 40 degrees south we could photograph all day!

King Island Workshop March 4th – 6th 2011

Another wonderful three day workshop down at King Island has just finished. Our Hosts Ian J and Lucinda were exceptional as usual. The service and food absolutely delightful and everyone on this trip was a bit overwhelmed. We got wonderful light for our photography and the only little drawback was that everyone said they could have spent more time at each location. However, as photographers we could always say that!  Too many images to shoot….not enough time!
I spent an extra two days on the Island as our hosts from the King Island Holiday Village needed some images of the lodging and accommodation for a new brochure that’s going to be printed soon.

Anyone that wants additional information on these workshops please feel free to email or contact me and I will happily send it out. Check out the page dedicated to these workshops on this blog:

Mount Buller and Mansfield district Weekend Workshop

I was invited by the Knox Photographic Society up to Mount Buller for three days last weekend to give lectures and lead practical field excursions on the mountain. Over thirty attended and we had a wonderful time together, with the wet weather on saturday night hardly putting a dent in the enthusiasm shared by all.  I am sure all of those who attended the workshop will come home with some amazing images and the photo’s I have posted here will only give you an indication of the fantastic array of subject material that’s to be found up here in the high country of Victoria.
