Enjoy seven days chasing light and photographing breathtaking landscapes in one of Australia’s most spectacular States!

The Tasmania: Landscape Photography Tour is your ticket to a landscape photography experience that will amaze and inspire you. With Cam Blake (wilderness photographer) and Seng Mah (travel/landscape photographer) in tow, you will discover the best of what Tasmania has to offer while learning to develop and refine your eye in fine art landscape photography.

Both Cam and Seng are experienced photography teachers who will help grow your understanding of the key techniques in landscape photography and, through working with you during the tour, develop your understanding of the fundamental elements of landscape photography: light, composition and mood.

This full inclusive tour makes sure that everything is covered: your accommodation, main meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), land transportation, in-field guidance and tuition and all national park permits. It’s a great way to enjoy the beauty of Tasmania in a hassle-free way, thus allowing you to concentrate on what you love best: photography and image-making!

We'll be living and breathing landscape photography on this tour -- sunrises and sunsets spent shooting, time in between exploring the environment and looking for unique shots, and down time talking photography and image-editing techniques and tips. It will be the best seven days of you've experienced in a long time, doing what you love and mingling with like-minded landscape lovers!

You will enjoy this tour if:

  • You are absolutely love landscape photography and want to photograph some of the most amazing and iconic Australian landscapes.
  • You have a strong desire to learn and to become better at creating landscape images.
  • You are driven by the importance of light in landscape photography – especially the light available at the beginning and end of the day.
  • You have a love for the wilderness and exploring the great outdoors.
  • You enjoy the company of other like-minded photographers and look forward to spending time talking photography.
  • You have a good level of fitness ie. you are able to hike on a trail while carrying your own camera bag and tripod for anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to get to photographic

Day 1 – 2: East Coast and the Bay of Fires

We begin with your pick up in Hobart and head to St Helens and the Bay of Fires, where red-crusted boulders tumble down to the aquamarine wash of the sea. This dramatic landscape was made for photography and you’ll love capturing its stunning colours, mood and light. We will also spend the day exploring the lush rainforests of the East Coast, where you’ll find “secret spots” to photograph forest creeks fringed by moss-covered rocks and soaring tree ferns!

Day 2: Chasing Waterfalls and Autumn Colour

We traverse Tasmania, heading into its heartland to enjoy shooting at the multi-tiered Liffey Falls, one of the most beautiful and photogenic waterfalls in Tasmania. We will be staying at Launceston on the north of the island, which puts us within easy driving distance of a range of remarkable photographic attractions.

Day 3- 4: Cradle Mountain National Park

From Launceston, we head to Cradle Mountain National Park, where we spend two days chasing light in one of this country’s most pristine and magnificent wilderness landscapes. You will be exploring and shooting at sunrise and sunset, with a spot of astrophotography thrown in, weather and conditions permitting. This is the season where the fagus, Australia’s only native deciduous beech, turns to a golden hue, which will add bright spots of colour to our landscapes. We will also explore the waterfalls trail and the highland rainforests around Waldheim Village.

Day 5-6: Strahan and the Gordon River

We head further West through the Franklin-Gordon Rivers country, to the town of Strahan at historic Macquarie Harbour. This is a place of deep forests and serene waters, the home of the famed Tasmanian Huon Pine. Macquarie Harbour has a storied past in Australian convict history — it’s pure wilderness that’s stunningly beautiful, yet with a savage past. We will be photographing in and around Strahan, as well as covering the hinterland on the look out for epic waterfalls such as Montezuma Falls, Horsetail Falls and Nelson Falls, where you’ll soak in the splendour of these incredible cascades and the rainforests surrounding them.

Day 7-8: Hobart, Mount Field National Park and the Tasman Peninsula

Our two days in Hobart will be dedicated to exploring the incredible Mount Field National Park, exploring its temperate climate rainforests, waterfalls and lakes. On the last morning of the tour, we shoot the sunrise at the magical Tessellated Pavement in the Tasman Peninsula, an area of coast where rocks have been carved into an amazing pavement like structure by forces of wind and sea.

You’ll finish the tour with memory cards full of stunning landscapes and new friendships formed from spending time with like-minded people. What a way to end an amazing photographic experience in Tasmania!
