Difficulty Level: Beginner
Meeting Location: GTM Classroom 1
We have carefully picked shots from the very best photographic locations from this continent to create an intense tour. Photography in Australia uses blinds and other pre-prepared photo setups; other times it is opportunistically shooting on the fly. Waterholes visited by groups of colorful finches; take what is quite simply the best boat ride in the world for photography in Kakadu; and check out fruit feeders that attract birds-of-paradise near Cairns. Again and again, we will see Australia’s bounty of parrots and cassowaries right in the eye. This photo talk is not just about birds though; we also visit the most spectacular scenery on the continent and rake in huge numbers of mammal photos: tree-climbing kangaroos, wombats, Tasmanian Devils, and even Platypus.
