FotoFreo consists of many parts and includes a number of ‘satellite events’. Satellite events are those that are conducted under the umbrella of the festival and which we are pleased to be associated with and endorse. However, they are not a part of the programme funded by FotoFreo. In most cases, the people or organisations involved in these events have had some past association with FotoFreo.
The following Satellite Events are arranged in the order they take place.
Landscape Legends 2012
Four days of inspirational, creative and spectacular landscape and wildlife photography with country hospitality, historical restaurants, uniquely located home-style accommodation and the best wines the Great Southern has to offer.
Following on from our hugely successful previous fun-filled Landscape Legends workshops, we’re planning another fabulous weekend where the Legends team of three inspirational Master Photographers each speak on specialised areas full of information and tips – the topics, themes and locations vary from previous years, and the weekend will be packed with great photography locations and help from the Masters. They will discuss various topics/techniques, giving the wheres, whats, whys and hows you’ve always wanted to know. There will be practical shoots, varying from dawn to dusk, at wonderful locations in the region, dream photo opportunities and sensational seascapes allowing for the optimum learning experience and photo opportunity.
All photographers are welcome - from beginners to professionals.
Venue: Denmark, WA
Dates: March 9 – March 12
