Forever Rustic Australian Photography Tour

6th May-12th 2017  $3,900 based on min 4. Less than 4 $4500

This Australian Photography Tour called the ‘Forever Rustic Photography Tour’ is a reflection of Pete’s love for photography which  started many moons ago. One of the subjects that ignited the burning passion within for Pete was shooting things old and rustic. This is reflected in the fact that he has over 5,ooo slides of old ruins that are scattered across Australia with the majority being in South Australia.

Every time you photograph one of these iconic buildings you are recording history, you are capturing a part of history that can’t be recorded again. Every year they keep falling apart and the next time you visit some of these old ruins, you’ll be surprised how they break down over that time.

 

This is sensational if you like iconic Australian pieces

The Forever Rustic Australian Photography Tour takes you across South Australia’s rural areas and ends up at Broken Hill and beyond. If you like old buildings, windmills, old rustic cars and things iron, then this is for you.
Can you image photographing the 1950’s iconic hills host clothes line in the middle of nowhere? The Forever Rustic Photography Tour concludes with a massive highlight at the old pub made for a film set, set in the 1980’s.

In all of the trips that I run, light is everything.  To shoot this master piece in the Australian Outback, I have allowed several days to enable us to have the best crack at it. I have also gone to great lengths to get permission to use this iconic film set for our tour.

Your landscape photography will go to another level once you learn about light.

All of Pete’s Australian Photography Tours  are built around light and the importance of what that light does for the landscape and your photography. The great thing about Pete’s Australian Photography Tours is that he will always put you in the right place at the right time as it’s all about the light. Pete can’t control the weather but he can make sure you are there at the right time, so if the weather was to break, you are there for the shot. Like all of Pete’s Tours what you put into it is what you get out of it.

Forever Rustic Australian Photography Tour

6th May-12th 2018  $3,900

 

 

 Forever Rustic Photography Tour’ is a reflection of my love for photography which  started many moons ago. One of the subjects that ignited the burning passion within me was shooting things old and rustic. I get so excited about this and I love bringing this experience to my guests as this is a wonderful opportunity to relive the past and if you are young, to know what the past was like.

Can you image photographing the 1950’s iconic hills host clothes line in the middle of nowhere? The Forever Rustic Photography Tour concludes with a massive highlight at the old pub made for a film set, set in the 1980’s.

I love this photographic experience for my guests. It’s dramatic and nothing excites me more than to photograph the past and this experience touches many cords within us no matter what our age.

Every time you photograph one of these iconic buildings you are recording history, you are capturing a part of history that can’t be recorded again. and and that excites me and sends shivers up my spine. What excites me also is that the pictures that you take on this trip, will become historic as they may not be there in the next 12 months or 5 years.

Join me on this amazing adventure where we travel through Rustic South Australia and New South Wales. Right at the end of the Tour there is a wonderful rustic surprise that awaits us.

Your landscape photography will go to another level once you learn about light and shooting rustic is all about ” the light “.

  • If you are thinking about a Pete Dobré Photo Tour, please book now !!!!
  • Operators that I deal with  in running my tours require commitment 8 weeks out and in the past I’ve had people booking within that time and the tour has to be cancel due to low numbers and yet if people had booked earlier, the tour would have been sold out. This is one of the tricky aspects of running tours which is the cut off point which operators require otherwise I’m charge with rooms that I cant use. Please keep this is the back of your mind when considering a Pete Dobré Photo Tour, just makes things so much easier from my end.
  • Thanks kind regards. Pete:)
