Join us on an amazing four day King Island workshop visiting magnificent coastlines of red covered lichen and pink granite. Azure waters that roar and sweep up along the most pristine and beautiful beaches. Marvel at the variety of sea-shells and the kaleidoscope of coloured seaweeds along the shoreline.

On this King Island workshop we visit various points of interest through the lush farmland and track along the 4WD by-ways to see lagoons teeming with birdlife which the Island is so famous for. Our journey includes the wild coastline of Black point, Seal rocks, The Calcified forest, Currie Harbour and colonial Lighthouse, Cape Wickham and its wild battered coastline, Grassy Beach, Martha Lavinia beach, Disappointment bay, The Gulchway and Surprise bay. Much of our workshop time is spent along coastlines and hinterland not seen by the majority of tourists.

We travel in specially designed 4WD Australian built Oka’s on private land and inaccessible areas to see the real Island and of course, many more of those magical photographic moments. If time permits we make stops at the Big Lake and visit the rare perched lake known as Penny’s Lagoon. Our specially designed workshop is very flexible as we need time to savour and set-up our photography at each location. We try to show you as much as we can and depending on the birdlife and wildlife spotting, we often have unscheduled stops. It’s all about capturing the moment. We chase the light, and get involved in the moment. There is time to relax, a visit to the cheese factory is a highlight to sample the wonderful soft-ripened cheeses. When possible, we take the group out at dusk to observe and capture on camera the little Penguins as they come ashore.

Your time on the King Island workshop will be special and the food provided is nutritious, very delicious and where possible, it is locally produced. The King Island workshop includes personal advice on all camera settings and compositions each day for all.
