2018 AIPP Victorian Epson Professional Photography Awards

I was really happy to receive Four silver awards at the recent Vippies (AIPP Victorian Professional awards) Tough competition and amazing high quality of entries as always. I feel that Australian awards are world class and we maintain an extremely high standard of photographic excellence across all states. Look forward to the Australian Nationals later in the year. The four images were all shot in Arctic Norway this year.Landscape08Landscape09Travel06Travel07

Norfolk Island Photography workshop 2018

Just an update on my annual photographic workshop to the beautiful Norfolk Island… We still have a couple of places available for anyone wishing to join us this year in September 2018. This is one of my all-time favourite locations to run a workshop, as I know the island so intimately. I have conducted over 15 workshops here, and can assure anyone interested in learning more about their craft, that this is an incredible place to hone your skills. I get you to the optimum spots for both dawn and dusk shoots and other secret places few others visitors see. Photo critiques, plus photo-shop and Lightroom instruction given on numerous sessions too.  To book, simply email Karen at:   karen@travelcentre.nf  and she will be delighted to send you out all the information and relevant booking forms.Norfolk-Island-Annual-2018-01B

Arctic Norway Winter Adventure Photographic Workshop February 2018

Eight lucky participants shared the adventure with us in perhaps the most delightful arctic sunshine we have seen for a few years. The weather is usually quite stable up here in the these regions during mid-winter, changeable is the norm, but we were truly blessed with an abundance of sun and blue. Clear skies at night too, meant chasing the Aurora Borealis was a real treat, and as seen from the last post, there were many nights of truly spectacular shows. Starting our journey in Tromso, our group spent the first few days in the most wonderful spot we have used on this workshop before. We then slowly made our way south, spending a few nights on Senja Island and then on towards the Lofoten Islands. This workshop is one of Ewen’s and my favourites, and we consider ourselves quite the experts in our knowledge of this region during the winter months. There are a few places left still on the February 2020 workshop…but they are filling fast. This workshop books out early, so consider joining us on another arctic adventure…you will not be disappointed!  (check out the workshop page on my website to download a full PDF containing all the information for this amazing workshop) I have posted a few of the images taken during the 14 days we spent up here together with our group.
