Day 1 - Launceston Airport to Cradle Mountain National Park, Dove Lake Afternoon/Evening Shoot. The many moods of the lake along with the boat shed can be our focus for our first of many shoots in this Jurassic Mountain-Scape. The Dolorite Geology and changing textures of flora are always different in each season.
Day 2 - Sunrise Shoot, Editing & Day Walk to Crater Lake. With our head lamps on at the crack of the sparrows fart we will awaken with a glorious sunrise. The stillness of the lake and the dramatic skies always promises to be a relaxing and memorable experience. The surrounding fauna and streams along the 2 hour bush walk are perfect for a long exposure.
Day 3 - Arthur's Lake Afternoon/Evening Shoot + Editing. Also know as the drowned forest. This place nestled up in the highland lakes offers a unique landscape. An anglers paradise for trout fishing. Hydro Tasmania pumps water from these lakes back to the mainland. The eerie melancholic look of the Gum trees and the calm water contrast for the ultimate slow shutter shot.
Day 4 - Arthur's Lake Sunrise Shoot + Freycinet National Park Afternoon/Evening Shoot. At Coles Bay in Freycinet Lodge the jetty works well for a sunset shoot. If we are lucky with clear skies we may even catch a Milky Way Shot.
Day 5 - Sunrise Sleepy Bay + Bicheno Afternoon/Evening Shoot Ferry Pengiuns. Like most sunrise shoots we will have a look at good vantage points the day before during the day so we don't for the perfect spot in the dark. Good non slip shoes and sturdy tripod work best in these situations. Scouting the exact spot and knowing our terrain will be very helpful.
Day 6 - Drive to New Norfolk & Russell Falls at Mt. Field National Park. In Autumn the poplar trees go a canary yellow colour. The moss and fungi are plentiful so a macro lens can come in handy for those close up shots in the deep forest or caves.
Day 7 - Horseshoe Falls morning shoot, Mt. Field National Park. Late Afternoon Departure to Hobart Airport. To finish our last shot will be a short hike up to the falls and streams. The cascading ferns and emerald green moss will be our final re-charge.
