LuminOdyssey runs photography workshops and expeditions (“lumin-odysseys”) to locations around the world. These are usually hot-spots for wildlife (and landscape) photography, although some fit more of a travel photography genre. All of these trips include getting you to wonderful locations for making photographs, helping you capture great images in the field, as well as processing and managing your digital images during the trips.
Since 2010, locations we have so far taken photographers to include: Antarctica, subantarctic islands (including Macquarie Island, South Georgia, and the Falklands), Argentina, Africa (including Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana), Norway (including arctic Svalbard) as well as some locations around Australia (including Lord Howe Island). Many of these we will revisit on future expeditions, but there are always more places photographers want to go!
A changing world
Unfortunately no workshops are currently scheduled. Australia’s borders are closed.
We are working on plans for some local workshops in 2021.
Depending on the group size we usually have one or two instructors/leaders (usually including our coordinating instructor David Burren). We have run some of our odysseys in partnership with Michael Snedic of WildNature Photo Expeditions. Instructors on past odysseys have also included Glenn Guy and Martin Bailey.
