2018 Foto Frenzy Lord Howe Island Muster

Whether you love photography as a beginner or an experienced enthusiast, the annual Foto Frenzy Muster is an event that helps take your photography to the next level. Through Knowledge Sessions, shooting opportunities, editing time, personal one-on-one mentoring and shared photo experiences, you’ll be empowered with a deeper understanding of photography.

In 2018 the Foto Frenzy crew will descend on a true jewel in the Pacific… World Heritage Listed Lord Howe Island. This photographer’s paradise is the remnant of a 7 million year old extinct volcano, isolated in the Tasman Sea 600km off the Australian coast mid-way between Sydney and Brisbane.

Above the Water

You and your camera will explore sub-tropical forests, giant sea-cliffs, pristine sandy beaches and rocky coastlines, all in the shadow of the imposing twin peaks of Mt Gower and Mt Lidgbird.

Below the Surface

The ocean around Lord Howe is at a crossroad in the Pacific, where the East Australian Current brings warm ocean waters from the north to meet the temperate southern sea, creating an incredible diversity of life. Snorkelers will enjoy the brilliant colours of the most southerly coral reef system on the planet and SCUBA divers will venture farther afield to explore remote and spectacular dive sites around the island.

Please Note–Snorkelling is possible off the shore at no cost. Boat snorkelling package is available at additional cost. SCUBA Diving package available at additional cost. See “Workshop Inclusions” below.

Mentors

We’ve assembled a team of renowned photographers and photo-educators, who’ll all share their knowledge and expertise to help perfect your photography skills and extend your creativity!

Gear Pool

Loan equipment (supported by Aquatech and Canon) will be available so you can try out some exotic cameras, lenses and underwater housings through the Gear Pool.

From Capture to Print

This ‘Capture to Print’ workshop offers endless shooting opportunities above and below the water, review sessions, photo challenges, presentations and break outs and then culminates in a print exhibition of participants work on the final night.
