KATI THANDA-LAKE EYRE FROM ABOVE
Photograph the Incredible Abstract Beauty of Australia's Largest Lake
If you're a photographer looking for a unique photographic experience, THIS IS IT!
Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre is an INCREDIBLE landscape. If you'd asked me years ago what there was to photograph here, I would have said nothing but salt. How wrong I was!
This magnificent lake is now my FAVOURITE landscape in Australia. The variety of abstract aerial photographs is something that needs to be seen to be believed. That's a cliche, I know, but this is honestly a landscape that is like NO OTHER.
On this Lake Eyre Aerial Photography Workshop, you will experience the wonder of this vast lake in all its glory. FOUR tailor-made flights in your own privately-chartered aircraft with the doors off is the ULTIMATE photography experience.
I've spent over 100 HOURS flying over Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre in the past 6 years.
I'd love for you to experience this lake for yourself.

YOUR FULL ITINERARY
Flying into Coober Pedy airport by 12pm, you will jump into our private 4WD and be driven east towards William Creek, our base this Lake Eyre Aerial Photography Workshop. Checking into our accommodation, you will explore this small town before your first of three incredible flights over Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre. The colours of the lake in the afternoon is a sight to behold!
After the buzz of this experience, you will freshen up and join us for dinner at the pub for an authentic pub meal.
You will be up early for an incredible sunrise flight over Lake Eyre South to explore this unique landscapes This 2.5 hour flight will fill your SD cards with lots of incredible abstract aerial shots.
After this epic flight, you will have time to rest and download your fantastic images. This is where Tom will share his 25 years experience in photographic editing to ensure you get the very best from your photographs in either Lightroom or Photoshop.
Your next exciting flight is in the afternoon over the nearby Painted Hills. Not only will you have over an hour in the plane to capture all the aerial shots in gorgeous late afternoon light, but you will also land at the hills to explore and see in detail these hills.
Access to these hills is by plane only. You will photography landscapes that few photographers have had a chance to see themselves.
This is the flight that I look forward to the most - an incredible experience over Lake Eyre North. Tom will guide you over the amazing Neales Delta in the north, then the famous Warburton Channel where the water enters the lake from Queensland. This flight is over 3 fabulous hours and will take your breath away.
There's so much vastness up here. But Tom knows the EXACT places to go for the best photographs to take home with you.
Many describe this flight as the best flight they've ever taken!
Don't be surprised if you run out of batteries and fill those memory cards!
After lunch, we will sit down to review our images. Tom will take you through his unique digital workflow, allowing you to securely back up your photos and polish them to look their very best!
For sunset, we will head out to the lake via the road to Halligan Point. This gives you an opportunity to walk on the lake and see its incredible vastness.
Our final flight is a short one but spectacular none the less. We head across to the nearby Davenport Ranges for sunrise. These ranges are very photogenic at this time of day and voted as one of the best experiences on this workshop!
A yummy coffee and breakfast is well-deserved, before we drive back to Coober Pedy to catch our REX plane back to Adelaide and sadly say our goodbyes.
