I got back from my Tasmania photo tour several weeks ago now, so this entry is long overdue. I managed to lock myself out of my own website for a while… That’s frustrating.
So I spent 10 days in March tramping around the Tarkine region in the North West corner of Tasmania with 6 participants and Paul Hoelen. We had wild winds, crazy rain, fog and the occasional bit of blue sky. It was awesome!
Stanley and the North Coast
We started in the lovely town of Launceston before heading West across the North coast to the historic town of Stanley, where we got to hang out with David Murphy, one of the legends of the Tasmanian landscape photography scene. There are different types of locals you see.
I am a local, as in Australian and I have spent time in Tasmania. Paul Hoelen is a local in that he lives in Tasmania, and has travelled around it extensively. But David Murphy is a Stanley local and grew up there. If you want to find the best locations you ask a local, the more local the better, preferably a talented landscape photographer.
David took us to some fantastic local spots of stunning scenic beauty that we would never have found alone. Plus he is just a great guy who is super generous with not just his locations but also his extensive photography knowledge.
Paul and I will be running this tour again next year, and I am looking forward to hanging out with David Murphy again. If you’re interested keep an eye on the Tasmania Photo Tour webpage for details, or send me an email.
Tasmania Part 2 up soon… Unless I lock myself out of the site again…
