Bay of Fires Nature Photography Retreat

Friday 27th to Sunday 29th September 2019

Indulge in a truly magnificent coastal photography weekend! Bay of Fires is a sensational location for a photography retreat. You’ll spend each night in the very stylish bell tents Bay of Fires Bush Retreat, nestled amidst the the good ol’ Aussie bush. The experience includes chef-prepared meals, an on-location BBQ, and a 2-hour Bay of Fires eco cruise. It’s a chance to discover, experience and photograph!

Every photo shoot is fully guided, includes expert photography instruction and there’s plenty of time to capture the light, colour and contrasts of the vibrant lichen-stained boulders, pristine beaches and azure bays of the coastal landscape. You’ll be shooting at different times of the day, most certainly at sunrise, sunset and for the night sky. Maybe an elusive aurora will appear. And we’ll be there with you to help you capture the magic… just imagine the photos you could take.

Our ‘glamping’ accommodation is booked exclusively for our group and there’s all the modern conveniences of life to make our stay very very comfortable indeed (including heaters and hot water bottles in each of the bell tents). Each night you may like to sit by a warming campfire, toast marshmallows and sip on a cup of hot chocolate or a glass of wine. The Bay of Fires Bush Retreat truly is 5-million star accommodation!

By the time you return home, you will have immersed yourself in a very interactive learning experience and captured a number of stunning images to show off to your friends and family and/or to showcase on the walls of your living room.

And our gift to you…

We have teamed up with Print2Metal to get one of your photos displayed in your home… on us!

“I was throughly pleased with the total package offered by Roy & Coreena. Roy provided first class tuition on composition to me and his critiques of images taken was very insightful and extremely valuable. ... ... Nothing was rushed, Coreena provided excellent support. Overall a very worthwhile experience and highly recommended.”
