Orion Australian Geographic photographic expedition to Papua New Guinea

This 11 night voyage, departing Cairns, provides opportunities to test and develop photographic skills – historic World War II sites, tropical islands, exotic bird and marine life, primitive artworks, active volcanoes, the colonial atmosphere of Madang and a rare visit to a remote village near the Sepik River.

In association with Better Photography magazine and the Australian Geographic Society, and under the knowledgeable guidance of internationally recognised photographer Nick Rains and Grand Master of Photography Peter Eastwood, this Orion Expedition Cruises' April 2011 Papua New Guinea voyage is designed to appeal to photographers of all levels – while not forgetting their partners (whose interest in the finer points of photography is often less enthusiastic!).

Pre-shoot workshops onboard will include professional advice and instruction on photographing seascapes, portrait skills, lighting, detailed macro flora and fauna, and instruction on editing-software to optimise final images.

Orion's Australian Geographic PNG photo expedition departs 3 April 2011. Fares, including accommodation, all meals, inclusive shore excursions and photographic workshops commence from $8,995 per person for an Ocean View Category B Stateroom.
