A boutique, small group photography tour to the historic town of Carcoar. A photographer’s delight with a plenty of old buildings, including the old railway station, to provide beautiful textures and scenes to shoot. Includes tuition, transport and accommodation so all you need to do is immerse yourself in your photography and enjoy the company of like-minded photographers.

Many photographers want to immerse themselves with other photographers and really get into creating art. Some people would love to be out photographing all day and prefer a photography tour. Others would really love to attend a photography workshop, full of learning and growth. Why not combine the best of both worlds? Take photographs when the weather and light is at its best. Use the rest of the time for learning, processing your work, critiquing and getting inspired. With a small group it is very easy to adjust what they are doing at any time to suit the skills, energy, light and weather to best fit with the group. Nothing is set in stone, they carefully follow what suits best at the time. This trip is all of the above: retreat, a bit of workshop and a bit of a tour.
