Wild West Coast Photography Workshop

Join us for four days spent photographing and exploring Tasmania’s stunning west coast.

November 22nd to 25th 2019 

About the workshop

This workshop offers guided and supported walking and photography in some of Tasmania’s most dramatic ocean landscapes. We will be exploring the unfrequented and wild granite coastline north of Strahan, with the chance for wildflowers, big seas, red rocks, waterfalls, tannin water, golden light, night skies and more! 

Wild Island will provide delicious meals and photographic guidance, but we’ll be camping out and you’ll need to bring and carry your own tent and sleeping bag, along with lightweight gear and clothing.

The Workshop includes;

  • Specialised and practical tuition in photography with Rob Blakers. 
  • Detailed and hands-on instruction in landscape field techniques, photographic equipment, wildlife photography, focus stacking, the wonders of composition and light, inspiration and subject matter, stitching and more! 
  • Night sky, and with luck, aurora photography 
  • Small group discussions and relaxed information-sharing 
  • A follow-up session at Wild Island in Hobart on the evening after the workshop, (7:30 – 9:30pm, Tuesday 26th November) where we will cover basic image processing, and share the images from our trip. 

Is this workshop for me?

The walk in to our base camp is along a rough 4wd track of moderate grade. We will be walking with full packs, carrying all of our gear, for about 2 hours on a couple of days. You will need to be in sound general health. If in doubt, please contact us.
