MY NEWS AND ESCAPADES

Items filtered by date: April 2018 - Julie Fletcher Photography - Outback Australia Photography

Just wanted to thank you Julie for a great time these past 3 days.  I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with a few other like minded photographers whose enthusiasm for the craft gave me a much needed boost.  I leant a bit and was happy that you didn’t mind me adding some of my knowledge to your class as well.  You are a great photographer, guide and teacher.  I hope I get to shoot with you again sometime.

All the best

If you have never shot the outback then this workshop will open your eyes and stretch (and possibly challenge) your talent.  Julie has found many hidden gems amongst the rough to photograph around Marree and Lake Eyre, but it's not as easy as it sounds.  Although Julie will describe her perspective at each location, learning to see those gems yourself and use the light to advantage was the message I brought home from this workshop.  The locations were diverse so each one had it's challenges. From Julie's photographs you can get an idea of the many moods possible out at Lake Eyre.  At first glance, the lake is an overwhelming landscape.  But as you become more intimate with your location, you can settle down for a really fantastic show of light and colours with the setting sun and capture the mood.  Then somewhat opposite, there are the Red Cliffs which are so abstract that you can find compositions at every step. And there's much more....so don't hesitate to make the effort and enjoy this outback workshop. Thanks Julie. I hope to see you and Marree again one day. And last but not least, Lyall treated us to fantastic outback hospitality and some great country meals at the Oasis Cafe, Outback Kitchen and Roadhouse.  Roast night at the Roadhouse was an amazing buffet style spread, all cooked by Lyall. He looked after us with pleasure and humour.  All in all, a great outback experience.

Fun was had by all on this workshop, great locations and some basic post tuition along with a couple of critique sessions open peoples mind to the possibilities of creativity and finessing work. I also provide help in the field with settings and composition making sure everyone comes away with some great images. If you are open to listen I want to help you and you will come away with alot of helpful information. On this workshop I had a very experienced photographer David who has in the past been a judge for the AIPP awards and been a photographer for a long time. He was a great bonus to have on this trip and offered up his experience as well as taking on board my workflow and tips and took way a fresh perspective in the great outdoors. I also took away some valuable information from him and made a great friend. Although this workshop had a variety of levels of experience everyone got something out of it as I make sure I have enough time to spend with everyone if required and thats why I keep my workshops small and intimate.

I will have a couple more workshops before the end of the year and am gearing up maybe one weekend tour specifically for Lake Eyre and nothing else, no post in this one at all just photography at the Lake. I will also be starting Kangaroo Island workshops over summer which are still in the planning stages so stay tuned. If you are interested in joining me please subscribe to my newsletter which are specifically for letting you know what workshops and tours are on and when. You will not be bombarded every week maybe only a few times a year.

Hope to see you in the great outdoors sometime.

The first Marree Lake Eyre Workshop done for the year with only 2 people as 2 people cancelled. A small group but we still had a great time out and about and also covered alot of post processing techniques over the 3 days. This is a great trip for beginner to intermediate level photographers who want to take their skills to the next level and be pushed out of their comfort zones. More workshops to come this year so either subscribe for updates or keep checking my site.

A selection of Flinders Ranges images are now up on the walls of the Flinders Food Co in Hawker in the Flinders Ranges. These are for sale either framed (take them with you) or as prints (ordered). A diverse and unique collection of work that I am extremely proud of.

Flinders Ranges South Australia Photo Tour June 2015

Hi Julie, Thanks for another awesome workshop! So different from the previous ones with such a heavy emphasis on shooting in such a variety of locations, but one that still delivered the goods.
