Sapphire Coast Photography Workshop

After travelling extensively around Australia for the best part of 8 years, in 2010 Mark decided to relocate to the beautiful Sapphire Coast of New South Wales. Come and discover why Mark chose Merimbula as his new home and visit the region's photographic highlights while learning how to capture stunning landscape photographs!

Our exclusive Magical Merimbula photography workshop is a highly unique three day photography workshop on the road that allows photographers from amateurs through to semi-professionals to learn how to capture professional quality landscape photographs.

Rather than learning in a boring classroom environment, photographers are escorted around the Merimbula region in a modern air-conditioned mini-bus and taught essential photography skills while visiting stunning locations at the best times of the day.

Workshops are limited to only 6-8 participants. This ensures that everyone gets plenty of 1 on 1 photography tuition at each location.

Workshops often book out months in advance so secure your place online today to ensure you don't miss out!

Additional Tour Testimonials

"Hi Suzy & Mark,

Thanks again for another very enjoyable and well organised photography workshop. It was great to catch up with you both.

The coast around Merimbula is indeed magical and we were so lucky with the weather! As always Mark had thought of everything and provided us with a great variety of locations to shoot. He always takes the time to ensure that everyone is happy and comfortable at each location and suggests alternative shots if getting to the best spot is not for you. His advice and suggestions are always pitched at the level of the individual and have certainly improved the quality of my photos. I look forward to my next Mark Gray Workshop.

It was excellent value for money and it is great knowing that everything is included, accommodation, tuition and transport. The Fishpen Jetties and Camel Rock were my favourite locations but the workshop highlight for me was definately sunrise at Asling Seabaths!

As always the meals were excellent! All the restaurants visited were great and service was good too. Mark's box of snacks is also very welcome especially the cereal bars in the morning! Mark is very patient and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand and his advice is always helpful. Thanks to Mark I am now confident enough to shoot on manual and actually print my images!

Thanks again for another great workshop. I am looking forward to the next one already!"

"Hi Mark and Suzy,

One of the reasons that I wanted to attend your photography workshop was I wanted to concentrate on taking photos, I didn’t have to worry about driving, meals or my equipment being left in my vehicle and most importantly for me, being on my own on an isolated beach before dawn or having to drag my husband out of bed early to go to, out of the way locations, so this trip filled all of those needs. I can see why you have many women who have been on your trips before, and because of this point I will definitely attend another workshop!

I found the whole weekend enjoyable, the group was very pleasant, and when you consider the costs of accommodation, meals and travel I found it great value for money. The fact that I didn’t have to organise anything made it even more enjoyable, in our busy world we live in.

I found Mark was always offering his knowledge and expertise on location as well as leaving people to their own mistakes. I have struggled to think of any negatives on the trip, all the restaurants were excellent and it was great to eat at many different locations."

Tour Testimonials

"Suzy, as with the "Taste of the Tropics" workshop "Magical Merimbula" was also an amazing experience. A great environment for learning and great value for money!

Learning new techniques not only from Mark but also from the great group of participants was a definite highlight.

Great meals, excellent choice, quality and quantity and the technical sessions were very easy to understand. I discussed with others about Mark's 1 on 1 approach and we agreed, his method of getting us to look at things differently rather than being told what to do was just fantastic.

I will see you again soon for Central Australia 2013... planning is already under way!"

"Hi Suzy, loved the Merimbula photography workshop. I learned more than I thought and I am very impressed with my results. It was excellent value for money.

The highlight for me was the review of photos and discussion following, I feel it was here where i gained the most from marks experience.

I also gained a lot of experience from using the 10 stopper and learning how to set the correct shutter speed. And in review of my photos I have never had them so sharp!

Marks attitude towards all levels of photography was commendable. Overall, had a fantastic time and met some great like minded people.

Mark has a very good patient nature. Am considering another next year, will seek the time and contact you soon! "

"Dear Suzy, Alese and I had a wonderful time experiencing Mark’s expert landscape photography course in Merimbula. 

We enjoyed all the sites visited and both of us gained considerable knowledge as to how best photograph the aspects of each site. 

We were also fortunate in sharing this experience with a delightful group of like-minded people.

The attention to detail, tutorials and one on one tuition was absolutely first class. Please extend our sincere thanks to Mark!"
