Private Weekend Photography Retreat

An immersive weekend of nature, landscape, wildlife and night-sky photography,
led by local Tasmanian nature photographers.

Private, all-inclusive, fully guided and hosted

Designed for you to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life! Join us in Tasmania to hone your skills and creative vision for photography in Tasmania’s magnificent natural environment. Bring your camera and personal gear and we’ll do the rest, so you can indulge in a fully guided and hosted private photography experience.

You will focus on what interests you most, and be on location with a professional photographer providing whatever amount of instruction and guidance you would like, and however complex you would like it to be. No matter what level of photographer you are, you will achieve awe-inspiring photos. You’ll have a chance to receive valuable feedback in review and post-production tutorial sessions too.

Imagine the photos you could take…

The experience is private and will be personalised to you and your travel companions. If you are travelling with a non-photographer, your personal tour host is available to be their guide while you enjoy a range of photo shoots. If you are travelling solo, we will tailor a retreat especially to accommodate you.

Everything will be taken care of by your tour host, including your meals. You will dine at a time and place that suits a diversity of locations and photographic opportunities. There will be no worrying about restaurant opening and closing times either (which often conflict with the best light of the day) – you will dine on a bountiful range of Tasmanian fare prepared by your host.

Your tutor and tour host are local Tasmanian photographers Roy and Coreena Vieth, the owner-operators of Shutterbug Walkabouts. Join Roy and Coreena on a weekend of photographic inspiration and relaxation on a Shutterbug Walkabouts weekend photography retreat.
