Photography Camp

Pack your bags and gear for an immersive weekend of photography!

The Otways Photography camp is a weekend photography experience (2 nights) allowing you to immerse yourself in the wonders of what the Otways has to offer photographically.

The camp explores waterfalls and beaches as well as the chance for astro photography along the great ocean road (weather permitting). We’ll be covering filters for landscape showing you how to better control light as well as getting the most out of the natural wonders of the area. As well as taking photos, we’ll also be running though post processing techniques to maximise what you’ve captured.

You’ll be staying in accommodation in Apollo Bay close to shops and restaurants as well as affording access to numerous photographic opportunities.
