Enhance your skills for nature photography focusing on coastal long exposures, low light, night sky and Aurora photography!
While it cannot be guaranteed that Lady Aurora will dance across our skies, or if the conditions will cooperate, our location is well away from city lights with views to the south from our accommodation. Combined with the setting and rising times of the sun and the moon for a darker night sky, this is all in our favour.
Tessellated Pavement is one of Tasmania’s most photogenic natural phenomena and is complemented by pristine beaches, lush coastal habitats, a backdrop of soaring sea cliffs, and native birdlife. From sunup to sundown, there’s plenty in nature for you to focus on. It’s a time for you to immerse in photographing the motion of the ocean, magical light, intriguing patterns and textures, shore life in the rock pools, forest birds, shorebirds, wildlife and so much more.
This Experience is a rewarding and enriching all-inclusive photography retreat during which you are guided and supported in an attentive and non-competitive environment.
* Occurrences of Aurora Australis / Southern Lights are subject to environmental, solar and weather conditions and can never be guaranteed. Read more about it in our blog post.
