Adventure Based Intimate Landscapes – $80
In our digital age we are forever chasing the epic landscape. That wide breathtaking view complete with dramatic sky. But epic landscapes are best taken during golden or blue hour and usually require interesting clouds and skies. When our schedules prevent us from shooting during these times or when Mother Nature provides flat blue or grey skies, we can move to a more Intimate Landscape.
In the 1960’s and 70’s Eliot Porter demonstrated that shooting the Intimate Landscape can highlight the natural environment and wildlife and to increase awareness, understanding and support of conservation efforts. Intimate Landscapes focuses on small, unique parts of that landscape and extracts from the overall scene.
We’ll learn the techniques of shooting Intimate Landscapes from composition to light to focal length to achieve them.
The workshop is usually facilitated by two professional photographers/educators to ensure each participant gets plenty of one to one instruction and guidance.
The workshop lasts between 3-4 hours and participants need a moderate level of fitness. We will be walking the Cape Track for a distance of approximately 7k.

None, this workshop is for any skill level
Participants need to bring their camera and all lenses, fully charged battery, empty memory card, good shoes, jumper or jacket and a small bottle of water. A tripod is optional for this workshop.
A 70-200mm lens or equivalent is ideal but not required.
The Phillip Island coast can be a rugged and unforgiving place. Coastal areas are prone to rogue waves and cliff tops are unstable. The island has a very sensitive ecosystem and we will require all participants to remain on the clearly marked paths at all times for their own safety and the safety of our local flora and fauna. Photo Rangers is not responsible for any loss or injury that may occur on the workshop.

Our Adventure Based Workshops will generally go ahead in light rain. Typically the rain on the island will not last long and afterwards we get some of the best conditions for photography. Make sure you bring a raincoat and plastic bag (to shield your camera) just in case of rain.
If the weather is severe or lightening is present, we will cancel the workshop. We will attempt to make a call on workshop cancellation 2 hours before the workshop if possible.
The Astro workshops will go ahead on cloudy evenings and we will concentrate on light painting, fire spinning, using a Pixel Stick, strobes and El Wire as conditions allow. The Astro workshops will not go ahead in rain.
If a workshop is cancelled we will offer you a full refund or the option of applying the fee to a future Photo Rangers workshop.
