Tours, Tuition and Retreats in Tasmania for amateur photographers…

Imagine the photos you could take!

Our specialty is creating, organising and leading tailored photography tours, outdoor photography workshops and other photographic experiences in Tasmania, Australia.

Discover, experience and photograph Tasmania’s magnificent landscapes, a diversity of natural and historical wonders and the extraordinary wildlife and birds with Shutterbug Walkabouts. Furthermore, an overnight or multi-day experience will give you the opportunity to view the night sky or Aurora Australis for an astrophotography shoot. We’ll take you to our favourite locations and share our knowledge, experience and photo techniques with you.

We’re told by our guests that their experience is a success because of how we go about researching and planning everything, along with our flexible and attentive approach. We also place your photographic interests ahead of our own so you are assured of an authentic experience with the best possible service throughout.

See more of Tasmania on a tour with Coreena, an experienced interpretive tour guide and skilled local nature and wildlife photographer. Or learn photography in a relaxed yet focused way with personalised tuition from award-winning nature and landscape photographer Roy Vieth. Or ask us to tailor an experience that combines both.

Whatever experience you choose and whatever camera you own, you will have ample time to experiment with different camera settings and photographic techniques to capture unique images, not just snapshots. You are assured of an authentic experience with the best possible service from the moment you first contact us.

So please get in touch, we’ll be delighted to help you take the photos you imagine…
