West Travel Club
Join our experienced Travel Club team in these livestreamed tutorials designed to take your travel writing and photography to a whole new level. All from the comfort and safety of your own home!
From September to December, The West Australian’s Travel Editor Stephen Scourfield, photojournalist Mogens Johansen and travel journalist Will Yeoman are offering six 30-minute tutorials covering the basics of travel writing and photography, as well as revealing plenty of tricks and tips for more experienced practitioners.
From exposure, composition and subject matter to whether a mobile phone camera is actually better than a DSLR in certain situations, Stephen and Mogens take you through the essentials while showcasing their own photography.
For travel writers, Will tackles such topics as cultivating a writerly attitude to travel, note-taking, drafting, form and style, using examples from his own and other writers’ work.
Please note: for those attending our New Norcia Photography and Writing Weekend, these are different and much shorter tutorials to what will be presented there, although there will be some unavoidable overlap in subject matter.
Paying participants who cannot attend any of the Zoom livestreamed sessions, or who would just like to view them again, can access recordings on request.
