About the Workshop and Tour:
Come and join professional, AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers) accredited photographer and experienced photographic tutor, Michael Snedic, for five glorious days of photography on beautiful Kangaroo Island. This island, south of Adelaide in South Australia, is known as the 'Galapagos of Australia' for good reason!! Kangaroo Island hosts an amazing array of wildlife, many of the species thriving due to the low number of feral animals found on the island. It also boasts a wonderful array of photogenic landscapes, just waiting to be photographed.
Michael has created an itinerary that visits the most photogenic subjects and locations the island has to offer, at the best possible times. He has sourced accommodation, the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat, right near Flinders Chase National Park, where many photographic subjects and landscapes are situated.
From the time you are picked up your accommodation at Kingscote on the island, until you are dropped off at the end of the workshop to Kingscote, all your needs will be looked after. No need to hire a vehicle, book accommodation, organise meals or source photographic locations – it’s all done for you!

It’s up early for a sunrise shoot at Kangaroo Island’s most iconic landscape feature – Remarkable Rocks. These massive rocks are covered in orange-lichen and with the early morning sun shining on them, are very photogenic. Back for breakfast and we then head to Little Sahara to photograph the rippled sand dune landscape. We will then stop off at Vivonne Bay to photograph the aqua-coloured bay and rocky surrounds, including Point Ellen, where we will have our picnic lunch. A bit of a break after back a the retreat and then it's back to the Rocky River precinct for another wildlife photography session. This is followed by a sunset shoot at Hanson Bay. Dinner is back at the Retreat.
After an early breakfast and checking-out, we drive to the Hanson Bay Koala Sanctuary. From there it’s off to Duck Lagoon to shoot some inland waterways – water birds, tall red gums, reflections on the water, old rusty vehicles and farm implements. This location gives plenty of options and freedom to frame up your own perfect shot. We will also have a picnic lunch here. At the conclusion of our workshop, you will be dropped off either back to your accommodation or at Kingscote airport, where we will say our goodbyes.
