Lake Eyre Photo Tour April 2016

Dear Julie, 

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Marree/Lake Eyre workshop last weekend! Your tutelage was excellent, the other participants were a great group of people and lots of fun, and the locations were amazing!! The flight you organised, though additional, was worth every cent!

I am so glad I made the effort to join you, and despite the odd personal mishap, I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and appreciate the extra little touches you arranged for my benefit. (Hope your hand has recovered from helping down the slope at Lake Harry!)

Yours sincerely,

Christine (Victoria)

Lake Eyre Photo Tour April 2016

I can't really put into words what this experience meant to me. Julie's bravery and determination has always been an inspiration and without that I would never have attempted the journey alone:-) The tour was amazing, the light was amazing and the main location was simply breathtaking. To experience all that with a great bunch of characters was something I will never forget!

I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to visit this very special place and learn so much from Julie, who's passion for photography and this area flows over who ever is around her. If ever you have the chance to spread your wings and participate in a tour, grab it with both hands while you can!!

And then there is Lyall at the roadhouse.....what a gem!!.....if ever you are travelling through Marree, he grills theeee best scotch fillet I have ever eaten!!

Lake Eyre Photo Tour April 2016

I just spent the most amazing 3 days on Julie Fletcher’s Lake Eyre Photography Tour/Workshop. Her photography speaks for itself but I wasn’t sure what to expect from her as a teacher. I was not disappointed. I lapped up anything she had to teach us. Julie catered to all of our levels of expertise and was very patient and helpful. She is very humble and fair and did not hold back on revealing any of her photography secrets or amazing locations (including one that is not accessible to the general public). Julie genuinely wanted us all to ‘get the money shot’ and with her guidance, we all did.
I was with a great bunch of people and although we hit the ground running and didn’t stop, we all would do it over again in a second. If you are thinking of going on a workshop, I can’t recommend it enough…….and if you end up doing a Marree or Lake Eyre workshop make sure you try one of Lyall’s char grilled steaks. It was honestly the best I have ever had.
Thanks Julie, I hope to see you in the outback again one day.

Lake Eyre Photo Tour April 2016

Dear Julie,

To think that I had been assessing the pro's and con's of attending my very first photo workshop for over 12 months is now hard to believe - what was I thinking!

With so much to see, learn and do during the workshop the drive home gave me the first opportunity to reflect on just what had taken place and I couldn't get the smile off my face.

What an amazing experience I had from stunningly beautiful locations where you just had to step out from behind the camera and take it all in to the characters and feeling that can only exist in a place like Marree.

The Lake Eyre workshop had everything and more and I have gained so much knowledge and experience from yourself and also from my fellow workshop participants and I feel privileged to have been apart of it.

I look forward to attending another workshop in the future.

Kind regards,

Terry

Lake Eyre Photo Tour April 2016

Hello Julie,

I just thought that I would write a quick note to thank you for the opportunity to attend your Lake Eyre workshop.

You said it as going to be epic and it was. It was a privilege to have been able to see and experience your special location which is one of the most stunningly beautiful areas that I have ever seen and to do it with a group of like minded people was truly memorable. 

I would do it again in a heartbeat but I just need a new lens first and thanks for allowing me to use yours.

I will write a testimonial for you over the next few days but I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you - I'm still buzzing!

Regards,

Terry

Lake Eyre in flood again for 2016

Late last year I was approached by a Professor at Western Sydney University inviting me to contribute a chapter in a book that is currently underway called the Handbook of Women and Outdoor Learning. I was a bit dubious about writing a chapter. I actually thought to myself what have I got to offer that people want to read about. Upon talking to Tonia on the phone I actually have quite a bit to contrbute about my quiet journey to the top of my profession from start to now. I wont say finish because I am definately not there yet!

The other concern was that I am not a writer and was not sure where to start or how to put it down and this is still a concern for me but I have decided to give it go as Tonia said to me its time we got up and told our stories as strong independant women. Although I am the only photographer invited to contrbute there are a few other creative and academic women writing their stories also.

I am currently writing my chapter with no title at this stage I trust that will come to me as I keep writing.

One of my images possibly my image called 'GRAVEYARD' which was a finalist in the National Geographic Competition in 2013 will also be used on the cover of this book which I believe should be published later in the year.

I have just done an interview with Better Photography India. India's most popular photography magazine. The theme was astro-photography. The image they chose to publish was a shot taken on Lake Eyre amidst a very large storm front. This particular image was a finalist in the Astro Photography Competition last year in the UK. See the PDF attached with a selection of Photgraphers and their images.

Marree Lake Eyre Workshop April 2018

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…
