Photography is popular around ballooning. We often have guests who ask us “how do get a shot like that?” So we’ve enlisted the help of Melbourne based professional photographer & photography tutor Penny Koukoulas to join us for special flights and offer professional photography tutoring onboard. The next one is Saturday 24th of November. You'll be guided to improve your creative eye while you fly !
This workshop is suitable for any camera including your smartphone as long as it's no older than 3 years old. Penny will provide photographic advice and tips throughout your flight. The day starts with a briefing on how to take great photos and what to expect for your hot air balloon ride.
Penny will help you with lighting elements so you can capture the best light, and give you top tips on how to frame your shot for great results so you can capture amazing photos no matter what device you have. The balloon flight itself begins gently floating above vineyards before we climb a little to get sweeping views of King Valley, Mount Buffalo and the High Country and Ovens and King rivers
The group is kept to a maximum of 9 so you can receive one on one help. The balloon flight lasts an hour and the whole experience will take approximately 3.5 hours. The total cost is $385 and includes both your photography workshop and balloon flight - this combined package represents great value as the flight alone is normally the same cost. Breakfast at the end of the morning is optional and highly recommended at $30 for flyers and $35 for non flyers. Penny follows up with photography notes from your experience for your reference.
You'll walk away from the experience with a better understanding of how to take great photos and some amazing memories from your hot air balloon flight. We look forward to you joining us !
