GREAT OCEAN ROAD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
21st to 25th JUNE 2019
The Great Ocean Road in winter time is the best time to photograph this amazing location. A quieter time on the coast means that you'll feel like you have the place to yourself. Besides the weather is extremely complimentary to capturing the rugged coastal landscapes. Often cold fronts blowing up from the cold Antarctic seas provide spectacular photographic subjects as they sweep across the landscape.
You'll spend 5 days exploring this area, including:
- The world-famous 12 Apostles
- Hopetoun Falls and the Otways
- Loch Ard Gorge
- Gibson Steps
- London Bridge
- Cape Otway Lighthouse
Hi I'm Tom Putt and I'll be leading you on this fantastic Great Ocean Road Photography Workshop. I just absolutely love the area. The colour, the vibe and the fantastic Far north draw me back time and time again.
A little bit more about me - I am passionate and wildly enthusiastic about photography, having spent the last 20 years exploring all parts of Australia to photograph landscapes.
I first fell in love with photography at age 13. I photographed wildlife, following my love for ornithology, before leaving university to pursue a career in sports photography. In 1998, I was fortunate enough to take the eye of Australia's leading sports photography agency, Sport the Library. From 1998 to 2001, I covered over 300 events across Australia and the world, including the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
But my passion has always been in landscape photography. My first shoot was walking the Overland Track in 1997. Since then, I have travelled extensively across Australia to capture the beauty of this great land.
I am a Master of Photography and have won over 100 Awards in both International and National Competitions. In 2014, I was awarded the International Landscape Photographer of the Year Runner-up.

All our workshops require a good sense of balance and a good level of fitness in order to fully enjoy all the experiences. We regularly walk to fantastic locations for up to an hour at any a time but in one day you could be walking up to 3 to 4 hours in total. This may require walking over uneven ground, rocky surfaces, soft sand, deep snow, up and down hills, rock hopping, hiking to lookouts, etc. Some walks are steep and strenuous, others are on uneven surfaces. To get the best photographs you will be carrying your own backpack with your camera gear, tripod, water and lunch. Whilst we do not look to exclude anyone, being fit is essential to participate fully in the workshop.
