True North Kimberley Workshop 2012

26 Oct 2011 at 1:11pm

Ok you have thought about it, you have been tempted by it, some of the bloggers have done it and now it is your turn to experience the ultimate Kimberley photographic workshop.

TRUE NORTH APRIL 2012

I will be on True North with the man himself truenorthmark.com to teach everything I know about photography. To show you how to get stunning landscape images of what is probably Australia’s most untouched paradise. See below for the trip details.

Kimberley Gorges From 07 April 2012 To 14 April 2012
Wyndham – Hunter River/Broome, 7 Nights

The Kimberley Gorges itinerary features the northern half of the Kimberley
Ultimate cruise. Here the landscape is dominated by the Kimberley’s
stunning gorge country including the Berkeley River, the King George Falls
and the Mitchell River. Includes helicopter/aircraft transfer to Broome.

Kimberley Islands From 14 April 2012 To 20 April 2012
Broome/Hunter River – Broome, 6 Nights

The Kimberley Islands itinerary features the southern half of the Kimberley
Ultimate cruise. A totally different Kimberley experience featuring the
mighty Prince Regent, intriguing Montgomery Reef and the exhilarating
Horizontal Waterfalls. Includes helicopter/aircraft transfer from Broome.

I will be on both legs of the journey. Join us for one trip or both if you really want to see this coastline. It is a once in a lifetime adventure. Going with Mark is a bonus too as he knows all the spots to get the best shots, he always commandeers a tender boat and we never miss out on the action.

The best part of the True North is the absolute luxury you are in the whole time you are aboard. Not once do you have to lift a finger, everything is provided. It is simply the best ever experience I have had and will ever have. So much so that normal life after True North is a real let down. Be prepared for post True North Blues! Still there won’t be time for getting depressed you will have thousands of images to process when home again and back to reality.

We will shoot every day and process by night. I will be showing all my photoshop tricks and there will be lots of time in the field learning about composition and capture.

Get on board, this trip being at the end of the wet should prove to be as awesome as the most recent that Markie, Flemming, David Bettini and Greg Munyard were on this year. Lots of water and amazing skys.

More details of the adventure soon. Time to start planing.
