A must for the traveller, this travel photography course is designed to inspire you and deliver the skills you will need to develop a beautiful and stunning reportage style of your travels and the art of storytelling through your photography. Learn about lens, light, composition, depth of field and all the ins and outs of your camera to take stand out photos.

It is the ideal 'all rounder' course for beginners to advanced level photographers, ideal for any traveler, armchair travelers, photographers of all levels with any type of imaging capturing device (including film), cruise ship passengers, adventure seekers, travel writers, travel agents, tour operators..... anyone who wants to come back with much better travel images.

A camera to suit the occasion :

The course emphasises the need to be versatile in your photography - to use different image capturing devices whether its an iphone or a full frame $4000 DSLR. Learn to be able to adapt your shooting style to suit varying conditions of a region or event. If its raining you learn to shoot macro and portraiture, if its classic landscapes, you may have to wait days for the perfect light.

A course tailored to your individual needs :

If you enjoy photographing colourful, indigeous people then go to Rajasthan India, Namibia or Peru. If you are into vast landscapes then Iceland or Antartica maybe more your thing .. its all "horses for courses" and we tailor our courses to your individual needs. Less clutter in desert regions means cleaner backdrops and strong composition, less heavy camera gear means you have more energy to explore Venice from first light to twilight. Less gear means freedom to mingle with the locals in Zanzibar and a light compact allows you to shoot unobtrusively. On an African safari, you traditionally needed at least a 300mm lens and a good DSLR digital camera....now a $400 Nikon Hybrid with a 60x zoom will deliver outstanding results. Conversely, a full frame DLSR Nikon, Sony or Canon with a quality lens will produce unsurpassed resolution, quality and clarity for a huge wall mural. A $900 drone will deliver amazing 4K video on your next Himalayan trek and a iphone 6S sharp, clear, dramatic panos of your Kerala backwaters holiday.

Every course participant gets custom tailored advice on their gear, what / where to buy, destination shooting tips, knowledge on cameras, lens, accessories and the best deals. Detailed notes give tips on etiquette, security, the best time to go, image storage, battery life, camera care, security issues and much more. We are strong advocates of using an image capturing device to suit the location, your mood and objectives.

The Travel Photography Course is a 'hands on' outdoors course. We use a variety of locations to give you a feel for scenarios you will encounter throughout the world. Shooting boats and water in Fremantle harbour is similar to shooting on a Corsica sailing holiday, the tips on architecture photography around Fremantle can be transported to taking pictures in Portugal and the white sandy beaches give you skills in shooting snow-covered scenes in polar and alpine regions. The wineries and lifestyle shots throughout the Swan Valley reflect the vineyards and food haunts of France.

This is the ultimate 2 day travel photography course. We profile the world's most photogenic locations in a wrap-up iPad slideshow - Antarctica, Himalaya, Asia, Burma, Mongolia, The Andes, Paris, London, Rome, Scotland, Turkey, Greece, Canada, Vietnam, The Red Centre, Namibia, South and East Africa to name but a few of the worlds most photogenic locations. Why not bring along your own travel images to share!

Payments
Paying for your course in full upon booking will confirm your attendance. Places are limited on all courses.
Refunds
We reserve the right to cancel and reschedule any course, due to inadequate enrollment, bad weather, instructor illness, or an 'act of God'. We also reserve the right to cancel any course if there is insufficient demand, especially if it means that our costs would be higher than our income. Please therefore do not leave it until the last few weeks if you are interested in a particular date, as you may find that it has been cancelled. As our costs for each training event remain the same no matter how many delegates attend, like any pre-booked tickets for the theatre, concert, flights etc, we are unable to give a full refund in the event of non-attendance, regardless of the circumstances. If withdrawal occurs within the 14 days before the course starts we will try to put you on an alternative date if places are available. Please note that we cannot be liable for any other costs incurred by yourself, so please check with us before booking any non-refundable accommodation or transport.

We grant permission for participants to use any images captured by them during this workshop for self-promotion only.
