My wife Cecilia and I run Phillip Island Photo Rangers, a successful photography business on Phillip Island. We specialise in adventure based workshops teaching basic and intermediate DSLR skills. Our workshops are highly regarded in the community and we usually book each one out prior to the scheduled day. Our participants are typically from the local South Gippsland area or from the Southeastern Melbourne suburbs.
Cecilia and I have over twenty years photography experiences and close to twenty years education experience. We are both professional photographers and educators. Cecilia is a native Japanese speaker and we have designed our workshops to cater to participants with limited English through the use of our innovative Quick Reference Cards and based on experience teaching multilingual participants in the past.
We live on the island and have extensive knowledge of the island flora, fauna and seasonal migrations and as photographers we know where and when to catch the best photos on the island.
We are expanding our services to encompass organised tour groups. We are offering two packages for organised tours, the first is the BASIC DSLR workshop and the other is a an Adventure Based Photography Tour.
- Basic DSLR participants receive 2 hours instruction and informative hike. Each participant receives Photo Rangers unique indestructible Quick Reference Photography Cards & carabineer clip + Photo Rangers unique indestructible Quick Reference Island Animal IndentiFact cards. $70 pp (minimum numbers apply)
- Photography Tour participants take a 2 hour (or custom time) adventure based informative walk and each participant receives Photo Rangers unique indestructible Quick Reference island animal IndentiFact cards. Depending on the season and time of day, participants will see wallabies, pacific gulls, straw necked ibis, seals, endangered hooded plovers, australian ravens, wedged tailed eagles, peregrine or brown falcons, echidnas, copperhead snakes, short tailed shearwaters, southern right whales, orcas, cormorants, pelicans, various terns, superb fairy wrens, and many more in their natural habitat. $60 pp (minimum numbers apply)
We offer limited camera hire for $15 pp that covers the SD memory card that the participant keeps with their digital files.
If the two services mentioned do not suit your tour needs, we’d be interested in developing a package that suits.
