Lord Howe Island - our local paradise. Just a two-hour flight from Sydney or Brisbane, the World-Heritage listed Lord Howe Island is a photographer's dream. With idyllic beaches, lush forests, vibrant reefs, breathtaking peaks and an abundance of rare wildlife, it is a place of natural wonder.
This small-group workshop will take you on a creative adventure to the island's most spectacular landscapes and photogenic locations. Keeping the workshop as affordable as possible, the aim is to attract a different kind of traveller to what you might normally expect on a tour - passionate adventure seekers who are totally focused on creating inspiring imagery.

WHAT'S NOT INCLUDED
This is a small-group workshop with an exciting adventure itinerary designed to take participants off the beaten track in the search for inspiring imagery. With limited numbers and a flexible itinerary, the workshop can be catered to suit the interests of each participant, whether that means waking up at 3 am to go milky-way hunting, spending hours in the water searching for the perfect turtle shot or re-visiting locations to capture the landscape under different conditions.
We have tried to keep the workshop as affordable as possible to attract a group of passionate participants who may not be able to justify a solo trip to the island. This is a fantastic chance to visit the World-Heritage listed island for a reduced rate alongside a small group of adventurous creatives and led by award-winning travel photographer James Vodicka.
Lord Howe Island is easier to get to than the Great Barrier Reef or Whitsundays and has managed to fly under-the-radar as one of Australia’s forgotten island gems. It boasts the Southern-most coral reef in the world (home to over 500 species of fish), pristine white sand beaches, an abundance of rare wildlife and a range of adventure activities.
Two-thirds of Lord Howe is covered in natural forest, with walks to the island's peaks and secluded bays up there with the best in Australia. At just under 15 square kilometres in area, and with a limit of just 400 tourists at any time, it's not hard to find your own private patch of paradise on Lord Howe Island.
