Women-only Photography Escape

Tasman Peninsula

The Tasman Peninsula is renowned for its soaring sea cliffs, intriguing rock formations, pristine beaches and lush coastal habitats.

Connect with nature through photography, immerse yourself in the motion of the ocean, magical light, intriguing patterns and textures, shorelife in the rock pools, forest birds, shorebirds, wildlife and so much more. So many natural wonders and photography opportunities are sure to set free your inner shutterbug.

Our deluxe seaside accommodation is located on a private 6 acre property. There are views from the deck to admire and direct walking access to the shores of Pirates Bay… and it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to the iconic Tessellated Pavement too.

The overall experience is one of interactive learning. Discover, experience and photograph different angles and views, varying light and colours, along with the textures and patterns of a phenomenal natural wonder and the surrounding coastal landscape. Each day is planned to embrace boundless nature photography opportunities in the environs of Tessellated Pavement. This includes Pirates Bay Beach (Eaglehawk Neck) and Clyde Island and its adjacent rockpools.

Photo shoots and tutorials vary according to seasonal conditions and other factors. In saying that, the photographic genres to your avail comprise landscape, long-exposure, low-light and night, wildlife, birds, close-up/macro and more. You will be thrilled with our accommodation being wonderfully placed to view and photograph the Southern Lights (Aurora Australis) provided Mother Nature chooses to display her luminosity (subject to environmental, solar and weather conditions).

Imagine the photos you could take!

“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.”
