High on our list of photography tours has been Tasmania.  I think it might be one of the world’s most underrated landscape photography destinations.  Places like Bay of Fires, Cradle Mountain National Park, and Mt. Field are stunning. There’s such diversity to the Australian state, and so many different types of photo opportunities here.  So I’m excited to announce that in March 2021 we’ll be running a VIP scouting photography workshop to Tasmania!

The Itinerary

As I’ll describe below, the point of a scouting trip is to keep things a little bit fluid with the photography.  We don’t want to get too hemmed into an itinerary because we want to have the flexibility to explore and shoot the best conditions.

That being said, this trip falls in the category of a classic photography tour, even though we’re scouting. So, there is a bit of a set itinerary.  This is the framework of the itinerary, the locations we shoot will likely change, though, due to conditions.

Day 1 – Arrival in Hobart
Days 2 & 3 – Cradle Mountain National Park
Day 4 – Bay of Fires
Days 5 & 6 – Swansea, Coles Bay, & Wineglass Bay
Days 7 & 8 – Mt Field National Park
Days 9, 10 & 11 – Port Arthur
Day 12 – Departure from Hobart

What’s a “Scouting Trip”?

One of the trip types I run is called VIP scouting.  Those trips are smaller group and more expensive.  This trip falls in the category of a classic tour.  That means that there’s more structure and a fairly set itinerary.  That said, I do want this trip to have a bit of a location scouting feel to it as well.  That allows us some flexibility, and to capture some unique things.

Local Photographer?

On nearly all my trips I try to bring along a photographer local to the country where we’re exploring, or as an expert in the field we’re photographing.  On this trip,  we’ll have both in one!  I’m excited to be bringing along Sarah Hatton, a brilliant landscape photographer from Australia.  

She’ll be co-leading the trip and giving her local expertise out in the field. 

You can see her brilliant work on her Instagram feed here.

I’ll also be bringing along Greg Snell.  He’s not a local, but did live in Australia for a year working in the tourism sector.  He’ll be assisting and helping out with video.

Tasmania Tour Cost

The Tasmania photography workshop is €3990.  The breakdown of what that includes is below.  

The price is based on twin-share occupancy. If you’re a solo traveller, you’ll be matched with another solo traveller of the same gender. Depending on space, there will be 1 or 2 single supplements available for this trip – meaning you can pay extra for a private room even as a solo traveller. tasmania bay of fires
