What to Bring
Participants need to bring their camera and all lenses, fully charged battery (plus a spare battery), empty memory card, good shoes, jumper, jacket / waterproof jacket, flashlight, a small bottle of water, any ND filters (optional), tripod, laptop with copy of Lightroom Classic installed.
Note: Shared glamping accommodation please bring a sleeping bag, pillow and towel.
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 and Benjamin Eriksson Photography are not responsible for any loss or injury that may occur on the workshop.
Cancellations and Refunds
You may cancel and get a full refund if you notify us 14 days or more before the workshop.
Our Adventure Based Workshops will generally go ahead in light/medium 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. In case of heavy rain and storms, alternative workshop venues will be provided.
The Night Photography workshop is based on the conditions on the evening, if it is cloudy then we will do lots of Light Painting while keeping a keen eye open for stars and the Milky Way.
