Five day photography retreat in the Australian Outback with Richard I’Anson

In the Flinders Ranges of South Australia

Author of Lonely Planet‘s Travel Photography, Richard I’Anson, and Australia’s Arkaba Station have partnered up to offer a five-day photography retreat in the Outback. The retreat includes a two night stay at a private homestead property in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia followed by two nights of camping in luxury “swags” and dining in the wilderness.

I’Anson will lead groups of ten photographers in guided sessions throughout the wildlife sanctuary as they focus their lenses on sandstone bluffs and dry creek beds lined with river red gums. Guests will be taken to Wilpena Pound where they will have the opportunity to capture images of indigenous animals such as Western Grey Kangaroos, Yellow-Footed Rock Wallabies, Emus, and Wedgetail Eagles. A review session of each day’s images will take place at Arkaba Woolshed, followed by a three-course dinner prepared by the resident chef.

Rates start at $2,980 per person for double occupancy ($895 for single travelers) and includes all meals, select beverages, over-night accommodations, on-property transport, and the photography program. For more information visit southaustralia.com.
