Marree Lake Eyre outback Workshop August 2017

With the Sturt desert Peas in flower it made this workshop extra special for everyone. These elusive flowers only germinate when the conditions are just right. Knowing they were out was the reason I put on one last workshop for the year. Exclusive locations is what makes this trip so special along with some post processing instrucution over 2 days and lots of guidance in the great outdoors. We have a critique session also which gives everyone an idea how they are progessing with composition and post processing. Lake Eyre is always the favourite on this trip but everyone enjoys the diverse landscapes and night shoots we do out here. Its just good fun in an area that is remote, sparse, with big skies and light that never seems to end. 

Check out the testimonials from others that have been on this trip and others that I have run. Hope to see you one day in the great outdoors.

Marree Lake Eyre outback Workshop August 2017

I can't recommend this workshop highly enough.  The locations were all challenging and varied greatly in their nature.  Lake Eyre was simply breathtaking and, for me, the intro to astrophotography was a real highlight.

 Julie encouraged us to stretch ourselves creatively, supporting us with plenty of help re possible approaches to shots.  As a result, I came away from the workshop having really learnt something, both in terms of photographic technique and in terms of image creation.

 Add to that the whole Marree experience, which was simply great fun, and the workshop is one I would recommend to any photographer interested in creating better landscape images.

Hi Julie,

I have appreciated the consideration you have given me very much - thankyou.

Your enthusiasm and passion for photography has rubbed off on me. You have taught me to never give up in such a nice way. You have a real strength and I wish I had that same characteristic.

You have improved my photography and enabled me to move of the P mode so I have more control of my camera in a few days.

There are many powerful hints you have given me. I will now have to consolidate them all and most of all practice what you have taught me.

I can now pursue my hobby with so much more confidence.

Thanks heaps Julie

SA Life Magazine September 2017

In September I grace the cover of this magazine with a shot of Lake Eyre and there is also a bit of a write up on my recent wins in ANZANG with a picture of my winning landscape image Spirit in country. This year I won 2 categories the landscape and the potfolio category.

Out of all my tours this would have to be the most challenging for me. The Flinders is dangerous for kangaroos and emus and at the moment due to the lack of culling it is super dangerous. I was challenged on every level on this trip and although my car is set up for this environment it is still very stressful driving the roads. I hit 2 roos damaged an indicator lamp and knocked off my number plate off on this trip. As they say the show must go on and that it did. I am super confident but also cautious on the roads, you panic out here and its a death sentence. Slow and steady is the way it has to go in those prime times of animals but it is very tiring and taxing as the concentration is at 200%. We had a great trip saw some amazing country and my group learnt so much. Check out the testimonials for yourself. I did not hold back and got out safely when we needed too for the best light and locations, thats always my promise to my clients and something I stand by in all my trips.

For 2 years in a row I have managed to take out 2 categories for a win. In 2016 it was landscape and botanical and this year it was landscape and the portfolio prize which is what I was trying for. The first in the landscape category was a bonus. Unfortunately I was just about to start my Flinders Tour when the presentation night was on and could not make it down to the SA National Museum but I had my friend Paula go down and grab some photos and video for me. I got bombarded with phone calls from the ABC wanting interviews and said no to all apart from one Annette Marner from regional SA as she always supports me and was happy to wait until I finished my tour. My 6 images are now part of the exhibition which is currently in the SA National Museum on display and then travels all around Australia throughout the year. Do yourself a favour and go and have a look at the great work people are doing you wont be disappointed.

Hi Julie

Thank you so much for the special photographic experience.

I look back through my pictures taken while on the photographic tour of the Flinders ranges with Julie and realise the research she has undertaken to make my photographic experience a truly memorable one.

It was packed full of adventure and diversity and with a small group of 4 Julie managed to make sure that each of us received individual attention specific to our individual needs.

I thoroughly recommend this venture to all keen photographers. The Flinders ranges is a wondrous area of Australia "My dreams came true".

Cheers

Hello Julie,

Just dropping you a line to say hello, and say how much I enjoyed your photographic tour, and your company, as well as the company of the others. Anyone who might be thinking of doing this or any of the other tours Julie runs, would be hard pressed to find better.

Julie is highly knowledgeable in the areas she runs her tours, and you learn camera techniques with out even realising. For me this was great. Small group, Big fun learning, so glad I did it. I learnt so much from you in those few short days. I hope one day to join you on another one, when finances allow.

 Many thanks

Hi Julie,

 The Flinders Ranges workshop I attended in August 2017, I found to be one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in my photographic passion.      

 Your expert experience, guidance and overall commitment to everyone on the course was exceptional. The long hours you put in from early morning to late in the evening were more than anyone expected and were most satisfying.

 I would like to personally thank you for giving me the coaching to further my skills and most of all for giving me the confidence in my own ability.

 thankyou again

Marree Lake Eyre Photo Tour 2015

Every time I tell someone about that weekend I get to relive it – and bring every second of that amazing weekend back to life! I have to say that trip was the highlight of not only my photographic life, but my whole life. An experience I will never forget…
