Let's explore more

Coreena and Roy view photography to be as much about cultivating a sense of individual accomplishment as it is about achieving a visually pleasing image. Furthermore, engaging in nature photography is a wonderful way to connect with the natural world and capture its beauty in your images.

For this reason, Shutterbug Walkabouts offers a variety of experiential options, so you can select the one that resonates with you – your interests, your objectives, and your preferred mode of participation.

Private experiences

Focus on your interests with a dedicated private guide/tutor with the option to shape your experience to be what YOU want it to be. You have the option of sharing your experience with a non-photographer travel companion and/or allowing for accessibility needs in the activities arranged.

Experiences in this category include Premium Private Photo-oriented Tours, Private Nature Photography Retreats and Private Photography Tuition & Tutorials.

Small group experiences

This group of experiences are pre-prepared with a set schedule and predetermined itinerary and/or location. With Shutterbug Walkabouts, a small group is four to ten participants, with the maximum number coinciding with the activities planned. 

Small Group Tutorials and Workshops: Open to all nature photo enthusiasts who prefer to learn in a group environment. Tutorials are presented in an interactive manner and complemented by guided photo shoots and/or walkabouts so participants can practice newfound skills and techniques with individual guidance provided in situ.

Women-only Photography Escapes are all-inclusive retreats tailored for women passionate about photography. Enjoy an immersive multi-day experience with female-focused guidance, including tutorials, guided photo shoots and personal instruction.
