Outback NSW Photographic Tour (8 days)


NATURETOURISMCERTnew

A few years ago I conducted a number of photographic 4wd tours. These proved quite popular at the time and I've had a few requests to organise another one, so here we go.

Firstly, what is the purpose of a photographic tour? Well, unlike some commercial photo tours I prefer to look upon offering a great location along with the opportunity to learn more about your photographic skills to improve your own cherished private pics. We are not aiming for you to be the next Ken Duncan of photography, but we will improve your personal photographic collection to give it that WOW factor that you will be personally very pleased with and impress all those that you share your photos with.
Ideally you should have digital SLR camera, but as many of us also carry our mobile phones and use their cameras to capture many of the candid and must take in a hurry photos, you will also learn a lot about composure and positioning to get the most from every photo you take.
Who is going to be our pro photographer on this tour? Well, it just so happens that your guide on the trip, Neill Bell is married to Gail Bell who just happens to be very skilful with her camera, in fact she is a little more than skilful having studied photography under Ken Duncan himself. So Neill will be your guide with Mrs Bell (we call her photoshop) always at his side and yours throughout this week of travel and photo tips.
This is not only a photo tour but a fantastic 4wd trip through some of the best country not only in outback NSW but also in the mountain ranges of the Great Divide. We have planned to be camped in some magical locations so you can get the most from Gail's words of wisdom especially around sunset and sunrise.
