My wife and I recently enjoyed a half-day private workshop with Coreena. We both gained a huge amount of knowledge and confidence with our digital cameras, and got some great practical experience taking photos on Mt Wellington. Coreena kept it fun and relaxed while dealing with our very-different goals for the session. Highly recommended whether you are seeking a unique Tasmanian outdoor experience with a knowledgeable guide or expert photography tution.

We had a wonderful time. We have been to Tasmania multiple times and thought that something different would be in order. Our travel agent booked Coreena for tours of Maria and Bruny. Coreena is knowledgeable, funny, entertaining and prepares an amazing BBQ. We would definitely have Coreena guide us again.

I did a private night photography class with Roy in Hobart. I have some experience with photography and he was able to adjust to my skill level and provide me with the exact information suited to me. Roy was accommodating to my mobility issues getting around Hobart. Particularly useful was going through adjustments using aperture priority, a setting I had forgotten how to use. I was able to achieve clear and pretty photographs in low light conditions. Tips for composition were also highly appreciated. Would love to attend another class.

My second experience with Coreena from Shutterbugs Walkabouts was even better than the first. A two night getaway to Rathmore in Southern Tasmania. As it was a small group, photographic tuition was more one on one and I was able to learn so much more about my camera, how to set up each shot and also learn to use my new tripod. This would have to be the best purchase because taking photos with it makes such a difference. The weekend was mostly about photography and composition of photos, but it was also about kicking back around a fire, toasting marshmallows and chatting about the day.

In November I spent 5 days on a womens only retreat to Flinders Island with Coreena from Shutterbug Walkabouts. I have spent many years with a great camera that I never really understood how to use. It was frustrating that my photographs never gave a good representation of what my eye would see. After 5 days with Coreena I am seeing a marked improvement in the end result and a better understanding of composition. I had never spent the time getting up early for sunrises and waiting for the sunsets and what a difference the light makes. To top it off I walked away from Flinders Island having fallen in love with the landscape and being amazed by the accomodation, the company and the food. You will not regret participating in this womens only photography experience or I am sure any of the other experiences Shutterbug Walkabouts offer.”
