Astroscape Photography Workshop

Astroscape Photography Workshop

Join us for an evening of Astroscape photography in a total dark sky site which will give us the fantastic opportunities to get awesome Milky Way and star trail images with no light pollution

Astroscape is a genre of photography where we photograph the night sky with something on Earth in the foreground. We are heading to a total dark sky area in various country locations where we will have something in the foreground like a lake, trees, rock formations etc. We will teach you how to photograph the night sky to get amazing images of star trails, stars and the Milkyway.

All levels of photographers are catered for from beginner to professional. A camera and lens capable of full manual settings is necessary along with a tripod. Ideally your lens needs to be wide angle, with an aperture of between F1.4- F4.

The evening will start with a Sunset shoot at our location followed by a meal nearby after which we will return for the main Astro shoot.

The all inclusive price of $95 includes snacks, a meal and all photographic instruction from Anna-Mair Francis, a formally trained photographer with years of experience teaching people to become better photographers. Full details will be given on booking.

Please note that these workshops take place in various locations and on different dates. Please check that you have chosen the correct venue that you wish to attend when you fill out your booking information.

Sunset Photographic Session × × × × × × ×
Sunset Photographic Session

Sunset Photographic Session

Join us to learn how best to use your camera settings to get great shots of the sunset and the full moon in a double themed session. You will need to be resident on Rottnest Island as no accommodation is included.

Wadjemup (Rottnest Island) is ideally situated to view the sunset in the West and the rising full moon over the ocean to the East. We will set up for sunset near Garden Lake on the edge of the Settlement to add the opportunities for beautiful reflections especially if we have an evening with no wind. Often we can be disappointing with the colour when photographing sunset so we will look into how our camera settings can be used to enhance colour without the need to oversaturate images in post processing. We will then move to Thomson Bay to photograph the full moon over the ocean in the East.  

A discount will be offered to participants of this session for the Dawn shoot and/or photographic day tour on March 19th

Rottnest Astroscape and Long Exposure Photography Workshop

Join us to learn how to take Astroscape and Star trail photography at Bathhurst Lighthouse on the amazing Rottnest Island. We will show you several ways to photograph the night sky including star trails and stacking images.

Looking at the stars we are challenged by how small we are on our little planet as each star is as big or bigger than our Sun. 


Photographing the night sky can be a challenge so join us on this amazing opportunity to learn about the best settings to achieve a photograph that you can be proud of. We will also go through the correct settings to achieve a star trail using the Bathurst Lighthouse as a strong foreground interest. 


You will need a camera with manual settings although some 'point and press camera do have a night sky setting which may do the trick. A tripod is also essential but we have some that can be hired for a small cost.   We will give you further advise on what to bring and where to meet after booking. 


This session is for those already staying on Rottnest Island as we are not including the cost of ferry or accommodation in the price of the session. The workshop is led by Anna-Mair Francis, a professional Photographer with many years of teaching people how to improve their photography. 


If the clouds are covering the stars making Astro impossible, we will instead teach you about long exposures, how to get that smoky water effect in the bay in front of Pinky's Beach and the Lighthouse or an ethereal look from clouds passing over the Light house. If we have time we will include some light painting.
