ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Flinders Island is part of the 52 islands in Bass Strait that make up the Furneaux Group. It is a photographers paradise, endless unpopulated coastlines and beaches, pristine turquoise water, granite rock formations, land and ocean wildlife, diverse birdlife and the towering mountains of the Strzelecki Ranges.
During the four days of this workshop we will explore the vast array of these photographic locations the Flinders Island landscape presents, including a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit the smaller outer islands of the Franklin Sound from our own personal charter vessel (subject to suitable weather conditions). Each day we’ll chase the the sunrise and sunset to capture those golden hour moments, and everything in between. So be prepared for long days chasing that beautiful Tasmanian light followed by a recharge each evening with some fine food and drinks at our accommodation Flinders Island Gourmet Retreat.

YOUR EXPERT GUIDES?
PETER MARMION – I have been a regular visitor to the Furneaux Islands since the 1970s. These trips have involved sailing, bushwalking and a wide range of conservation projects, including research on Short Tailed Shearwaters, Cape Barren Geese and raptor populations. In recent times I have been involved in the restoration of the historic Fisher Island Hut in Franklin Sound. Throughout this time I have had my camera with me capturing the extraordinary landscapes of the archipelago. My intimate knowledge of the islands means I can confidently lead guests to a wide range of stunning photographic locations and can readily adapt the itinerary to suit the ever varying weather conditions which prevail in the Furneaux group. I have worked as a guide for thirty years and my interests focus on flora, fauna and history. Photography has been a passion throughout my life. My work has been published in a wide range of forums including books, magazines and online platforms. I look forward to sharing my skills and knowledge and ensuring a memorable experience for everyone.
ANDREW WILSON – I’m a Hobart-based commercial and fine art photographer, and the author of several best selling books including Old Sea Dogs of Tasmania, Coast Tasmania and Blue Water Classics. I am passionate about creating emotive and dramatic imagery that tells the story of a place, a person or a moment. I seek out the moody, evocative and stunning light Tasmania, my childhood home, is renowned for. I am highly skilled in the craft of composition, exposure, storytelling and classical post-production techniques. I love colour imagery but my true passion is B+W photography, and on this workshop I will share with you everything I have learnt from a personal lifetime and professional career as a photographer, author and publisher.
