South East Tasmania Photo Tours

 Explore the best of Tasmania’s South East. Choose from Autumn or Spring. Alfonso will be your photo tutor, driver and tour-guide. I love teaching photography especially landscape photography in my favourite Australian state. If you like waking up early for a sunrise and editing your photos at breakfast, this is the perfect learning adventure. Focus on Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik software for editing. Even though I am Canon and Fujifilm user, I am also familiar with all other camera types. All my customers I mentor for life. It’s such a fun journey learning and growing as a photographer to express the language of visual communication.

Look out for rare sea birds, fins or blows. Dolphins and Albatrosses are a common sight on our trips.

Day 4 - 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.
