Women-only Photography Escape

East coast Tasmania / Maria Island

Immerse yourself in a wonderful mix of photo activities led by an accomplished nature and wildlife photographer. This female-led experience provides a synchronizing combination of photography and relaxation in a supportive learning environment. 

Hidden secrets, a sanctuary for shorebirds and stunning light at sunrise – that’s just a snapshot of what to expect in Orford on the east coast of Tasmania. Add to that a day on Maria Island to meet the adorable wombats in their natural habitat while exploring the convict ruins and intriguing coastal landforms. All this and more to draw your photographic eye.

This experience is one of interactive learning. Take your photography to a new level through learning a range settings and techniques to photograph different scenes and subjects. From landscapes, sunrise, white sandy beaches, birds, wildlife and lots more.

“After 5 days with Coreena I see a marked improvement in the end result of my photos and a better understanding of composition. I had never spent the time getting up early for sunrises and waiting for the sunsets and what a difference the light makes. You will not regret participating in this women-only photography experience.”
