David Oliver

Learn from masters such as David Oliver

We’re giving you the opportunity to learn from David Oliver and Peter Eastway, who are AIPP Grand Masters of Photography (2 of just 9 in the world!). Join David and Peter as they give you incredible insights into the world of photography with not-to-be-missed tips for landscape, wedding, portraits and travel photography.

Plus AIPP Master Bruce Pottinger and Clare Oliver will join us, providing you the tools you need to get the most out of your camera. Jason Van Genderen is a globally awarded short filmmaker who will also be accompanying us on the trip – as Jason says, “why shoot 1fps when you can shoot 25?”.

Enjoy photographic experiences you’ve only ever dreamed of

Our workshop sessions will cover both technical and aesthetic aspects, as well as the promotion and marketing of photography. David Oliver will shoot a mock wedding to put you right in the action and you’ll go on early morning adventures with Peter Eastway to catch the rising sun and learn about landscape photography.

Bruce Pottinger will show you how to get the most of digital processing and Claire Oliver will ensure you get the most out of your Digital-SLR. Finally Jason will help guide your creative eye into the world of moving pictures and attempt to steal your attention from only shooting stills. Plus, we’ll also be enjoying thrilling trips to the amazing Whitehaven Beach and the Great Barrier Reef, including aerial photography from helicopters. What an amazing adventure this will be!




We’ll be giving you the opportunity to take part in aerial photography from helicopters and the chance to fly “doors off” over the Great Barrier Reef, including beautiful Heart Reef. This is a truely unique experience in a beautiful location that is naturally one of the most photogenic places on earth.
