Kati Thanda – Lake Eyre – Aerial Photography Safari

Lake Eyre is Australia’s largest lake.  At times it is filled with water from the channel country as the rains from Queensland and Northern Territories flow down into the South Australian outback, drawing in an abundance of wildlife and birds. At times it is dry, and the salt plains dominate the landscape. The outback light, coupled with the intricate patterns and textures left on the drying salt plains, make for stunning aerial photography. No matter the time of year, this spectacle should not be missed.



Join Scott Portelli, award-winning wildlife, nature and aerial photographer for this 7 day workshop.  Scott has photographed Australian landscapes extensively from the air and will be on hand to help you get the best results.
