Course Information

Looking for a quick escape from the city to soak up some nature? We all need to re-charge our batteries and learn something new. Most importantly having fun in our outside classrooms is our prime goal.

Weather Permitting, we will do seascapes, slow exposures, fast exposures, astrophotography, sunrise, sunset, waterfalls and abstract landscape photography. 2 tutors with a maximum of 6 participants means two perspectives and more individual attention.

 

Day 1 - Waterfall Photography at Leaura Cascades, Kattomba Falls, Empress Falls during the day, Sunset in Govetts Leap, Blackheath, followed by astrophotography nearby. Depending on weather conditions we may even consider a 1 hour walk for a sunrise shoot at hanging rock.


Day 2 - Sunrise at Govetts Leap, followed by editing & waterfall photography at Gordon Falls, Sylvia Falls during the day and sunset at Cahills Lookout, followed by astrophotography nearby. Other epic sunset locations again depending on weather may take us to Olympian Lookout.


Day 3 - Sunrise at Govetts Leap is an option, followed by editing & waterfall photography at Wentworth Falls during the day to finish with a sunset at Lincoln Lookout or similar westerly view.
