Luke O’Brien Photography Tours and Tuition

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Join Tasmanian landscape photographer Luke O’Brien for personalised and professional tuition to improve your photography. Luke runs a series of Tasmanian photography tours and workshops for those wanting to improve their camera skills.

Luke’s tours and workshops range from short one or two-hour ‘One-on-One’ tuition sessions in Hobart to fully guided, multi-day landscape photography workshops in the best locations all over Tasmania such as Cradle Mountain, the Bay of Fires and Mt Field.

Luke’s photography tours are suitable for people of all levels of experience and ability. All workshops are small groups (max 6) so personalised learning time is guaranteed. Luke has a wealth of experience to share with beginners who are looking for tips using their DSLR camera including manual settings, ISO and slow shutter speed. For more advanced photographers, Luke’s local knowledge is invaluable when it comes to getting into locations at just the right time for that perfect shot.

So whether you simply need a couple of tips for improving your photos or would like to experience a glorious few days taking photos of Tasmania with an experienced and friendly Tasmanian photographer, there is a photography tour or workshop for you.



Discover some beautiful waterfalls in the foothills of Mt Wellington, and then shoot a magnificent sunset from the Eastern Shore, as the city skyline sparkles into life under the imposing backdrop of Mt Wellington.

Tour start/finish times are dependent on the season. The workshop will be around 3.5 hours duration, starting mid-afternoon and finishing after the sun sets.

This is a “self-drive” tour – participants will be responsible for moving themselves between locations. No meals are included in this workshop. There are no entry fees required.
Also, there are no minimum number requirements for this workshop, meaning it will run even as a 1 on 1 private tour in the case of one booking only.
