Spend the weekend camping, hiking and shooting the sunrise in the Blue Mountains.

Outdoor escape artists We Are Explorers are leading nine adventurers on a two-day Wilderness Photography Escape for the weekend of May 6 through 7. Participants will meet in the Blue Mountains, where adventure photographer Jake Anderson will lead them on a ten-kilometre hike, through a waterfall and wild-swimming holes, before arriving at a secluded, 'secret' campsite — specifically positioned for sunset and sunrise shoots. After a campfire feast, Anderson will host an astro-photography session with the hopes of capturing the milky way, among other celestial bodies.

This excursion combines a camping and photography workshop, teaching adventurers the core skills necessary to embark on your own adventure and capture it like a pro. Ticket holders will learn the basic fundamentals of photography, including shutter speed and aperture, composition and framing, long exposure and social media growth hacks, to name a few.

On top of this, you'll also learn camping skills like basic navigation, where to pitch a tent safely, water filtration techniques, fire starting and overall camping hacks. Each ticket includes all of the above, as well as all food and snacks for the duration of the weekend.
