Details of the Australia Day Rottnest Workshop

The True North Australia day Rottnest Workshop (phew what a mouth full)  is all systems go. For those that need a little more detail here it is.

THE DETAILS

Date – 26th of January 2011

Leaving – Northport Boat Lifters, 2/4 Sultan Way, North Fremantle at 9am (arrive at 8.30am, don’t be late) Returns 10.30pm to same location.

Cost is $295 per person which includes the cruise to Rottnest on True North, the workshops, lunch and morning and afternoon teas.

Four speakers – Tony Hewitt, Nick Rains, Michael Fletcher and Christian Fletcher.

Only 49 places left as of yesterday so booking essential in the next week. (Limited to 100)

SO WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING ON THE DAY

We will cruise to Rottnest whilst we get a run down from Tony on the days events. Then it will be lay back relax and feel the cool breeze in your face as True North makes it way across to the island.

We will then anchor off Longreach Bay and the workshops will commence. The group will be split into two. Half staying upstairs the rest going downstairs. The speakers will each talk twice so everyone gets to hear all 4.

After the first two talks we have lunch and a time to relax and soak up the information you have just been given. Don’t drink too much at this stage as you will be a bit sleepy for round two of the talks.

After the talks you will have a bit of time to unwind check out the sponsors tables with their latest equipment and workshop deals and then it will be a short tender ride to the island for a sunset shoot with Tony, Nick, Michael and Christian as your guides. Learn how the pro’s shoot a bonus to the already full days schedule.

Once back on board we will take time to have a drink and mingle with like minded people where the conversations will definitely be photography or who is more famous, Merv or Muzz. Once we pull anchor it will be a slow cruise back to Fremantle and time to say good bye till next time. If you love the True North Experience you will be able to get some information on upcoming cruises and the photographic holidays of a lifetime.

THE COMPETITION

Last year we held a competition for the best photo taken on the day. This year it is going to be even better.

Thanks to Team Digital, F-Stop bags and Fitzgerald Photo Lab we have some awesome prizes for the lucky ones who manage to snap a bit of gold. This is only open to those who come to the workshop so your chances of winning are pretty good.

1st Prize – Epson Stylus Photo R1900 valued at $1000 or the equivalent amount of another Epson Printer Courtesy of Team Digital and Epson.

2nd Prize – F- Stop Bag ( the best Photographic Bag on the planet) Courtesy of F-Stop Australia

3rd Prize – 20″ x 30″ Fujiflex Print courtesy of Fitzgerald Photo Lab

The winners will be chosen by popular vote after the images have been narrowed down by the Photographers.

SO WHAT TO BRING

Your Camera, Tripod, sunscreen, money, towel, bathers (optional), laptop (be aware we can’t charge you all up so make sure your batteries are full), ipad, notebook, anything you can record information on to. I like Drambuie so if anyone wants to suck up to me that would do the job! Most importantly a sense of humour.

WHAT TO WEAR

Clothes (optional), TNFP Shirts, hats, thongs (True North has a no shoes policy so bring something that can get wet and is easy to take off)

WHAT TO EXPECT

Extreme Awesomeness!!

  1. Is the competition only able to be voted on by people on the cruise, not just by anyone. I know a lot of people were a little disappointed by the way last years voting was handled.

    • Hi Jamie,

      We can run the judging how ever the people want us to so maybe we can discuss on the day and run with the consensus?

      See you on Aussy day mate!

  2. Heya Mark,
