Photographic Workshop Adventure to Nepal and the Annapurna’s… 15th – 30th November 2018

Ewen Bell and myself have just returned from another photographic adventure in the high Annapurna range of Mustang in Nepal. After spending a few days in the Kathmandu valley including two amazing days in the ancient and delightful Bhaktapur, our group flew via Pokhara to Jonsom, to experience the superb mountain scenery and the wonderful hospitality of the locals. It’s always an adventure up here in the Himalayan mountains and the month of November meant dry sunny days and cold nights. Exceptional photography every day, with the light appearing as if by magic, also meant our group were really spoilt for choice when it came to subject material, and the meticulous planning by Ewen ensured that the mornings in particular were just an awesome light experience! Nepal seems to always deliver, photographically speaking and this years workshop was no exception. Our participants came away totally enriched with so many experiences, from both behind and in front of the lens!

Ian Rolfe – Southern Lightscapes Norfolk Island 2019


Norfolk-Island Photographic Workshop September 2018

Another wonderful photographic workshop was held this year on the alluring and superb South Pacific Island of Norfolk. Ten days of working the dawn and late afternoon light at the almost endless list of fantastic photo spots, ensured that all 12 of the workshop participants for this year have come away with a portfolio of amazing images. My sincere thanks once again to the great team at Norfolk Island Travel centre, who put together an excellent package for my annual workshop here. My thanks also extends to all the wonderful participants who shared the Island with me over this period. We had an absolute beautiful time together and I know we were all sad it had to end!

Next year for anyone interested, we are running another 10 day workshop from September 14th-24th 2019 To make enquiries or book, please email Karen at the Norfolk Island travel centre:




Flinders Ranges Photographic Masterclass September 1st – 7th 2019

Join Ian Rolfe and Ewen Bell on another extraordinary outback experience in 2019. The Flinders Ranges Masterclass has proven to be extremely popular by everyone who has joined the workshop in past years. Here’s a typical comment from a recent participant. “What a fantastic week I had with Ian and Ewen observing and learning from such great photographers. When you become so relaxed with these notable and reputable guys and they feel like your friends, it means that they are doing a superb job. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and energy is infectious and if you don’t come away a better photographer after spending time with them you never will. I can still hear Ian’s whoooooooo… echoing from the other side of a gully or hill when the light and views come together and can’t help but smile. Ewen’s grabbing me on a creek bed for a unique one on one session to share his special photography recipe, will stay with me forever. These guys have a wealth of talent and their love of the craft and super organisation of their workshops will leave you inspired to want more of what they have to offer. My bucket lists have just grown…..thank you so much for the experience and will be back for more!” Thanks again Ian and Ewen, we’ll catch up soon I’m sure! 

Places are strictly limited, so please download the PDF and book this unique and inspiring masterclass soon!
