Join me for an amazing Sydney to Hobart yacht race photography cruise this December.
Departing from Hobart on the 20 meter expedition vessel ‘Odalisque,’ our small group will make passage down the Derwent, passing the Iron Pot as we cross Storm Bay to Cape Raoul and Tasman Island. At every opportunity we will seek out the racing fleet set against the amazing sea cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula. The cruise will be timed to reach Tasman Island as the sun begins to set ensuring we get some great golden light moments before returning to Hobart under starry skies. On the steam back we’ll stow our gear and be served a hearty dinner with complimentary drinks from Frogmore Creek and Moo Brew.
During the cruise I will be capturing imagery for my new book on the race called ‘Blue Water Classics‘ placing you and your lens in the prime position to capture your own amazing images of the race.
Prior to departure I will conduct a 1 hour group tutorial on the technical and composition techniques I use to photograph seascapes. During the cruise I will be available for one-on-one advice throughout the 4 hours we are onboard, ensuring you have plenty of opportunities to ask the questions relevant to you and your photographic needs.
This Sydney to Hobart yacht race photography cruise is open to photographers of all levels, you just have to bring your own gear and enthusiasm for the subject matter. My ambition is that all participants disembark having had a wonderful adventure, been placed in some prime positions to capture great imagery and have increased their own knowledge on camera technique and craft.
In addition to the cruise I am also offering one-on-one post-production tutorials so that you get the best out of you captured images. During this hour I will answer any questions you may have and also show you some of my own techniques, including converting digital files to B+W. These tutorials can either be conducted face to face or via an online via hook up. Please select this option in the drop down menu above and I will contact you regarding a date and time post the cruise.
