Yarra Valley Photographic Tour Misty Valley

Yarra Valley Photographic Tour

Join Rod Black from Phototourism and our team members at our very popular workshop.

We meet before sunrise, and board a small bus and head to the Yarra Valley.
Weather permitting we start the day at the launch location of a local ballooning company, generally in a more rural location and dial up our ISO, grab the tripods and rush madly about capturing all the action. This includes capturing the burners illumination the paddocks as the balloons grow to their full size. They rise at sunrise and we’ll help you capture the final images before they float off with the wind.

We then search for Kangaroos in the wild. They often enjoy a meal near tracks early in the morning and we are usually successful in capturing their gentle ways. This is followed by a visit to a deer and emu farm where we can wander the hills and valleys to capture that natural look against the morning light.

We will visit a glass blowing studio where they not only blow glass but attract native parrots with a morning feed.

After breakfast, we’ll visit the Healesville Railway and the art gallery at the Worawa Aboriginal College.

Then we head up the highway and travel deeper up the valley towards the source of the Yarra River. We head into huge Red Wood forest to take inspiration from the beautiful nature surrounds and then back to Warburton for a café lunch. Time permitting, we may visit a couple of quirky spots in Warburton and then on to the water lily farm for some very unusual photographic opportunities. After that we have several options but we’ll try and get to an old homestead where there are working blacksmiths to capture some rustic images and the colourful characteristics of the blacksmiths. As we are homeward bound we may have time we visit a couple of very big rural properties also.

It is a long day but after you have had time to relax you will be able to enjoy a diverse range of the day’s images.

The cost is $249. Breakfast and lunch is available for purchase along the way.

All the above is subject to change depending on weather and time constraints
