Papua photography cruise

Article content

15 October 2010

Rabaul wreck

This 11-night voyage, departing Cairns 03 April 2011, provides an extraordinary array of 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 where the friendly welcome and cultural displays will overwhelm.

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 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).

Nick and Peter will be holding pre-shoot workshops onboard before taking guests on location accompanied by members of Orion’s specialist expedition team. Workshops include professional advice and instruction on photographing seascapes, portrait skills, lighting, detailed macro flora and fauna and instruction on editing-software to optimise the final images.

Explore, experience and shoot from dawn to dusk, then relax and enjoy superb cuisine and company by night.

Orion’s 11-night "Papua New Guinea Cultural Highlights" cruise starts in Cairns on 3rd April and visits Alotau, Samarai & Kwato Islands, Fergusson Island, Tufi Harbour, Tami Islands, Madang and Sepik River before arriving into Rabaul.

For the next two weeks until 31 October, Orion is also offering two-for-the-price-of-one flights from the UK to join this cruise, in addition to their free flights promotion for cruises in Australia’s Kimberley, Borneo, Vietnam and Melanesia.
