Bruny Island AstroWorkshop

17th -20th September 2020

$3995 Twin Share

Bruny Island Photography is dedicated to capturing and showcasing the Island’s unique natural beauty. Tasmania has a proud tradition of Nature Photography dating back to the 1850’s and these images have played a critical role in highlighting the richness of its natural environment and the imperative for its preservation. Our tours continue in the spirit of that tradition.

Bruny Island, itself, is a microcosm of the Tasmanian mainland. It is blessed with an extraordinarily diverse range of distinct environments – spectacular coastlines, geological wonders, beaches, rainforests, mountains, lagoons, abundant flora and fauna – a cornucopia of photographic material; all at your doorstep!

While bringing you to the many beautiful places this region has to offer, we will do our best to teach you how to take better photographs, to skilfully use your camera and equipment, and help you with post-processing. We pride ourselves on providing highly qualified photography guides to help you improve your photography.

From a chartered boat, our resident photographers will show you the geological splendour of the rugged Bruny coastline with its abundant sea and bird life – It is here that your journey begins.

Over subsequent days we will take you to some of the Island’s most scenic locations – many of which are situated on private reserves spanning thousands of acres.

Our accommodation offers spectacular settings for communing with the Island’s elemental beauty and unwinding from the day’s activities. A perfect base from which to practice, reflect upon and discuss the craft of photography with our guides and fellow tour participants.

We look forward to sharing our passion for the Island and showing you what an incredibly special place it is whilst honing your skills in the art of photography. You won’t be disappointed!

Workshop includes:

  • Boat Transfer from Hobart to Bruny Island (weather permitting)
  • Tasmanian gourmet food and drink (all inclusive including alcohol)
  • Deluxe accommodation in our private lodge

Our Uluru AstroWorkshops still provides one of the only experiences accredited to access the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park during the dark hours. It’s pretty hard to beat a crystal clear night sky in Australia’s Red Centre, it’s awe inspiring. When you add iconic places like Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) into the mix, it’s pretty clear this will be a very special and memorable workshop.

You will be treated to five days and four nights (three full days total) of dedicated astrophotography coaching and tuition, both in the field during capture and back at the accommodation including post-processing sessions. With ideal timing for dark night skies and the milky way rising from behind the rock this workshop will help you take your astrophotography to the next level. With the absence of light pollution, the clear night skies in the outback really do have to be seen to be believed.

Itinerary includes:

  • Uluru (Ayers Rock) – sunrise/sunset/astro
  • Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) – sunset/astro (where possible)

Our site is the location of a 1940’s shale oil refinery with its ruined industrial complex juxstaposed by the sandstone walls of the Wollemi and Gardens of Stone National Parks.

This workshop is designed to help you take your astrophotography to the next level. This is an all-inclusive workshop, all accommodation and food and drink will be provided (some conditions apply).

Whilst we can’t guarantee clear skies to capture the stars (keep your fingers crossed!), the refinery ruins, rural landscape, forest and surrounding valley walls of the Capertee Valley provides some stunning compositions for your Milky Way shots.
