Adventure – Discover – Learn
Participants will aim to ‘Shoot like Ansel’ (Ansel Adams, my hero and best landscape photographer ever). This workshop is designed for those who want to explore alternative styles of photography and push their creativity to the max. Workshop participants will learn how to shoot in black and white and better understand how the world looks different through monochrome eyes.
Participants will also learn about the native animals and environment unique to the island to better understand what they are shooting. All workshop facilitators are island locals and professional photographers who have an intimate understanding of the environment, seasonal fluctuations, animals and conditions on the island.
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.

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.
