Join Mike on a full day tour of Hobart and Southern Tasmania. Mike is an award-winning professional landscape photographer who produces a range of postcards, greeting cards, calendars and books. He has published 9 books of his photographs.
Mike has lived in Tasmania for 30 years and knows all of the best spots for getting those special photographs. And he will be on hand for any advice you need.
We start with sunrise from the top of Mt Wellington, it's freezing but well worth the effort.
After breakfast we head up the picturesque Derwent Valley to Mt Field. Here some beautiful waterfalls plunge into the rainforest below, you could spend all day here - I often do.
We return you back to your accommodation by mid afternoon - breakfast and lunch are supplied.
Maximum 4 people on the tour
1 person: $395, each additional person: $50

Here's what Choon Htoo Han had to say about his day:
"I wanted to photograph the beautiful landscapes of the Hobart area while we were visiting the city. It was a great pleasure that Mike accepted our request to be our photography guide for the day.
Mike planned and prepared many options and locations around Hobart and Mt Field area for me to capture a great variety of Tasmanian landscapes in different lights. He is not only an expert photographer himself but also a great guide sharing technical tips and very knowledgeable about the area. I would say photo spots that Mike brought us are truly hidden treasures that only a few local would know.
I greatly enjoyed taking photographs with Mike and exchanging ideas. We had a great sunrise shoot at a rocky beach overlooking Mt Wellington, a vantage point over the sleepy little town of New Norfolk, a picturesque salmon pond and an old hops factory, snowy Mt Wellington, a lush green Mt Field National Park and many more scenic spots along the way.
As for my non-photographer friend, she simply enjoyed the tour, food and the conversation with Mike about local knowledge and culture.
Thank you, Mike for wonderful experience for us. Your guidance kept me efficient and able to take great shots in a limited amount of time."

Here's what Nicole and Markoss said about their day with me:
Mike is a fantastic photo tour teacher and guide. He took us to some amazingly picturesque locations to maximise our chances of getting great shots. He shared lots of tips and tricks on how to use the various manual functions of the camera in tricky photo situations. He also lent me a lens and some filters to experiment with different effects which was lovely of him. It was an intense and full on day but the learnings were enormous and we were blown away by the resulting photos which speak for themselves. We will be back for another session with Mike in beautiful Tasmania soon.
