We have put together an exciting 2 days of photography showing Perth locals and visitors how to take beautiful images of some of the most famous and unusual locations in Perth and the Swan valley. Our itinerary includes a walking tour through the cosmopolitan town of Fremantle where you will see an eclectic mix of street life, people, cars and buildings, the beach culture of Cottesloe, historic Guildford and the wine, food and art scene of the Swan Valley.

This popular Perth photography course takes in the best locations and encapsulates the natural beauty and hedonistic lifestyle of Perth with an emphasis on its stunning natural beauty. Perth has its beautiful port city of Fremantle which is recognised as the best preserved 19th Century seaport in the world and has over 150 buildings that are classified by the National Trust. Together with superb beaches, magic sunsets over the water and the rich fusion of award-winning wineries, fine food, fascinating history and amazing art of the Swan Valley.... we emphasis lifestyle photography in outdoor settings on this course.

Our two day program is designed to be flexible and custom tailored to our clients requests. The overriding consideration is to show you the lesser known, less touristy gems that Perth has to offer. We know the very best, the most photogenic, the least crowded places to appreciate the world’s most isolated city. Perth really is about experiencing the beautiful white sanded beaches on foot, marvelling at the expansive clear blue skies, having a hamper basket of gourmet goodies and a good bottle of wine whilst exploring the picturesque Swan Valley and taking memorable images! It also boasts intact historic communities in both Fremantle and Guildord which we explore and photograph.

'Best of Perth' photography course (2 days)

■ The Port City of Fremantle: A hip, arty, historic gem with its café scene, beautiful federation architecture and interesting street photography abounds
■ Fishing Boat Harbour: Fishing boats sit alongside million dollar launches whilst tourists avoid losing their fish and chips to the seagulls!
■ Fremantle Markets: A colourful, lively market in the heart of Fremantle. Lots of tourist-oriented and arty goods on sale. Great for images of fresh produce
■ West End Fremantle and the Maritime Museum: We will discover iconic heritage hotels and buildings (many of which are home to Notre Dame University) before exploring the corrugated iron storage sheds of the port and the iconic Maritime Museum. Its reflective metal and glass elements provide a great photographic opportunity
■ Cottesloe Beach: Perth’s beautiful people display themselves on Cottesloe’s pristine white sands or sit for a picnic under the towering Norfolk Island pines. Sip a cold glass of wine whilst watching the sunset over the ocean.
■ The Swan Valley - only 25 minutes from the Perth CBD the Swan Valley is a premium wine growing region. We will experience all the “Valley” has to offer from wine and cheese tastings at Lancaster wines, to the beautiful park-like grounds and historic cellars of Houghton’s Winery.
