Great Ocean Road & Otways Photography Intensive
“The iconic is in the eye of the beholder”
The images we now call iconic were once the work of photographers who saw the exceptional in the ordinary in their own “back yard”. They photographed and printed what they saw and felt in such a way that today our hearts and minds are inspired by their iconic images. Now we seek to do the same with you in this workshop in the beautiful environment of the Southern Otways, along the Great Ocean Road. This is David’s “back yard”. David’s been coming here to photograph for 30 years and now lives here full time, and Paul is a respected national and

Paul is a much-respected national and international workshop leader and coach. “You’ll find many layers under the surface when you look beyond the many accolades Paul’s collected during his rich photographic career. His unassuming and earthly poise masks a deep feeling and passion for country, for the power and beauty of the natural world.
His inner strength and values carry him to places others may not go. His imagery speaks with great passion for and about those people and places he cares deeply for. From a more poetic view, you will also find in Paul a lightness like sun on trickling water and the playfulness of changing wind and shifting light. His playfulness is well balanced with a deep well-spring of knowledge and technical skill which he will generously share with you on our journey together.” (David’s reflections on Paul)
David is an experienced photography mentor, coach & competition judge, both privately & within his professional association. His works are held in corporate & private collections, including the permanent collections of Museum Victoria & Photography Museum of Lishui (China).
“David is an image-maker of great depth and his experience in the field is as vast as the Otway skyline. It’s a real blessing to stand beside him and see the world through his many layers of experience. I particularly enjoy his great understanding, knowledge and appreciation of the work of the masters who have come before, and his particular way of finding the extraordinary amongst the ordinary. His love for the region is so genuine he has made his home deep in the heart of it and wakes to its rhythms every day. There couldn’t be anyone better to guide you through this landscape and support you to find the extraordinary wherever you send your visual attention.” (Paul’s reflections on David)
“Seeing David at work & the way he shared his knowledge was a real growth experience. I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their photography.” (Richard C.)
