Winter Landscape Photography Tour – Bright located at the foothills of Mount Buffalo is one of George’s and Karolin’s favorite mountain towns…so laid back and so beautiful.  We’ll be heading out of town to take photographs around the Mount Buffalo National Park. Through winding roads of giant Eucalyptus, snow gum tree woodlands and sub-alpine grasslands unique to Australia makes itself for spectacular winter scenes up to the high mountains. Add a sunset and a sunrise and you will bring home some of the best winter scenes you will ever make!

Mount Buffalo National Park has sheer cliffs, imposing granite tors, tumbling waterfalls, snow gums and stunning wildflowers. This Workshop offers a well-rounded and highly resourceful educational experience, appropriate for any level of outdoor photographer, but especially for beginners and intermediates. The program consists of field-based shoots in beautiful locations and interactive critique sessions on participants’ laptop computers. A full, yet comfortable, schedule optimizes field time helps facilitate the absorption of invaluable, professional information. George will also discuss post-processing of your images with computer programs such as Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop and do live demonstrations.

No participant should feel that they are not qualified to attend. Limited enrollment gives all participants quality time with George Triantafillou and ensures that each person gets the specific instruction needed, based on their individual level of experience. Pro landscape and nature photographer, Karolin Schild, assists George at most workshops, further ensuring individual attention. A group-based critique session allows participants the chance to learn from others’ work, while personalized field instruction addresses the photographer’s needs related to both understanding camera functions and techniques of composition.

Winter Photography Tour. One of the hardest things about nature photography is that we have so little control over our subjects, the weather, and the light we have to work with.

The above image was made on our winter landscape photography tour last year. Of course, we can’t always guarantee snow but the quiet beauty of this area, with it’s sheer changing weather conditions, makes it perfect to understand and adapt to the different elements in landscape photography. We look forward to working with you.

Winter Considerations!
It can be very cold early and late in the day at 1,723 metres (5,653 ft) above sea level.. Sometimes well below zero! But that doesn’t mean that we can’t be comfortable and make beautiful images at the same time….because we always do. You’ll need to dress warmly with standard cold weather gear such as ski caps, ski gloves, down jackets, lots of clothing layers to shed or not, warm socks and boots. We can always jump in and out of the vehicle if needed to warm up.
Digital cameras use more battery power than film cameras, and batteries don’t work as well in very cold weather; therefore, bring an extra battery and your charger….just in case. As for your camera and lens, cold weather doesn’t affect their operation. If it’s snowing, don’t worry, the seals on your camera are very water-tight; however, fogging of lenses occurs when you take a very cold camera into a warm, humid environment…we’ll work on this at the workshop. Otherwise, consider bringing some lightweight gloves along with ski gloves, although I find it easiest just to work with bare fingers, and then warm them up in gloves in between shooting.
Physical Difficulty:
Easy to moderate hikes and lookouts (must be able to get up and down from short mountain climbs approx. 2 km return).
Please be aware it is winter season and some of the walk tracks may be covered in snow. But don't be afraid it is not that difficult to walk on snow.
