Since 2010 LuminOdyssey has been conducting photography workshops and expeditions to locations around the world.Cruising an iceberg field in Zodiacs

Locations we have so far taken photographers to include: Antarctica, South Georgia, the Falklands, Argentina, Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Norway (including Svalbard) as well as some locations around Australia (including Lord Howe Island). These are usually hot-spots for wildlife (and landscape) photography. Some of these we will revisit on future expeditions, but there are always more places photographers want to go! The trips include getting you to wonderful locations for making photographs, helping you use your equipment in the field as well as processing and managing your digital images during the trips.

We have a range of workshops lined up for you. To enquire about any of these workshops, please contact us. We are maintaining waitlists of interested people in all these workshops, even those that are currently fully booked.

Workshops currently open for bookings

These workshops usually fill quickly, so don’t hesitate! Click on the title or photo to see more detail about each workshop.
