The Discovery Photographers community is for imaging professionals, amateur photographers and artists committed to developing their visual skills. We provide courses, photography tours, training and collaborative activities to advance your skills. Experienced photographers lead all the courses so excellent technical information is guaranteed in all tutorials. However it is our adventures in the landscape and the discovery of your own expression of its narrative that provides the catalyst for developing your skills. We work with the National Parks and Wildlife Service and their Aboriginal Discovery rangers who relate an intriguing cultural and traditional perspective about the land through their traditional stories and activities. NPWS rangers also provide relevant geological and historical information.
