A typical beach from the Esperance/Albany stretch, photographed by Tony Hewitt many years ago - and one of the reasons we're keen to go back!
As you can imagine, photographers like Tony Hewitt and I are wondering when we're going to be getting back to 'normal' for photo tours and workshops. It's just before Christmas 2021 and the short answer is, who knows! While I am hopeful for the second half of 2022 to venture overseas, we are looking at local destinations for the first half.
Now it's true that Western Australia has been locked away (or is it that the rest of us have been locked out?), but Tony is hopeful by the end of May 2022 all should be well as far as Australians at least. With this in mind, he has planned two Hewitt/Eastway workshops and we're putting out expressions of interest. We are taking just six photographers on each of them.
The first will investigate the South West of WA, from Esperance to Albany. The photo tour begins on 30 May 2022 in Esperance where we'll spend a few days, then we drive across to Albany for another few. Included are aerials, seascapes and a little bad humour as we explore this wonderful corner of Australia. We finish in Esperance on 5 June. Price around $9900, ex Esperance/Albany.
The second trip is a Shark Bay Aerial Photography Experience, from 7 - 11 June 2022 (so you can join both if you'd like). It's an aerial photography experience with post-production and feedback sessions from our luxury beachfront accommodation at the Monkey Mia Resort (an airconditioned room, including ensuite, per person). It includes four aerial photography flights using a Cessna 206 with doors off (but Tony quickly adds we will be harnessed in)! Price around $9,900, ex Shark Bay. Come on both photo tours and there's a 10% discount.
