The print was always the natural end product in the old film days, but now everything is digital so can’t we just look at our images on the monitor?
Of course you can, and that’s a great way to enjoy your photography. But a beautifully made print of a well crafted image is something special all by itself. It’s many steps beyond the image on the monitor, but it can be even more than that, it can also fast track your photography skills.
As you may have heard, the Bhutanese government has put the price of their daily tariff up, starting from next year. Way up… They are doing this in an effort to control their rampant tourism industry and mitigate the damage that tourism can do to delicate cultures and fragile ecosystems.
After nearly 3 years of (covid imposed) no photo tours to Bhutan I am headed back there in 2023, for my 11th trip.
I completed the details on the website a few days back and sent a short notification email to 8 people who had expressed a specific interest in Bhutan for 2023. As of today there are 4 places taken already, which leaves just 2 left…
I will be sending out a general newsletter later this week, and with only 2 places remaining I don’t imagine they will last long. If you think you might be interested in my Bhutan photo tour for 2023 you can read all the details HERE>> If you have any questions regarding this tour please send me an email to email@example.com
I only take 4 participants on my Karijini photo tour, it’s a very small group by any tour standard, and the perfect number to fit into just one Landcruiser with camera gear. The Landcruiser is a lot more comfortable on the terrible roads within and around Karijini than the smaller Toyota Prados or Pajeros that you can normally hire locally. The Landcruiser is much roomier, especially the leg room, and the better suspension makes for a smoother ride on gravel roads with corrugations and the odd pothole…
Why don’t I shoot on my Karijini Photo tour? (Part 2)
The other reason I don’t shoot while on my Karijini Photo Tour is about limited room at locations. Many of the locations in Karijini are narrow and shooting spots are few, so just 4 participants is the ideal number, especially without me hogging the best spot (not that I would do that anyway). If I don’t even carry camera gear then the temptation to shoot is completely removed. I get my photography fix vicariously by ensuring all of my group get their best shots.
After many years running my Karijini Photo Tour as a private tour I have finally gone ahead and put it out for general release. Just like my private Karijini photo tours previously, I have kept it to just 4 participants, and I don’t do any shooting, just mentoring.
My Tasmania photo tour for 2023 with Paul Hoelen is now out and booking. I’m a bit slow with the blog entries, out of the habit I guess, so it’s actually been available for a couple of weeks and it’s almost full. As I type this there are just 2 spots remaining.
My Karijini Photo Tour for April 2023 is out and ready to book, actually its already half full. Since this tour is for an exclusive group of just 4 participants it means there are only 2 spots left.

Where was this image shot?
The Image above is Dales cascades, one of the locations we shoot on tour. This image was shot on my pre tour reccie (before a private tour) 2 years ago, with the Phase One IQ3-100 digital back on the Cambo WRC400.
COVID is still around, but it does look like it’s reaching a state of “normality” where we are finally accepting that we must find a way to live with it… Which in Australia has definitely NOT been the policy so far. So far we have been more “keep it out at all costs”, Which means we have missed out on all the gruelling measures and the death toll that most of the world has been enduring.
One of my favourite cultural events on our Autumn tours to Japan is our photo shoot with some of the Maiko and Geiko of Kyoto. Known to most westerners as Geisha. This is not a word they ever use in Kyoto. In Kyoto they are Geiko – literally “Woman of Art”, and Maiko, the apprentice Geiko – Literally “Girl of Dance”.
