Our mission is to enable photographers of all levels to create wonderful photographs while enjoying the incredible beauty of nature in Australia and Indonesia.
In stunning Australian landscapes, guests learn to take their photography to the next level and to learn what they need to take sensational shots wherever they travel!
Ric Wallis, a successful professional photographer, hosts the trips and shares his knowledge about how to create "what's in our mind's eye". Flying to places that are normally difficult to get to (or where flights can't be bought), guests learn how to accomplish what they set out to achieve when taking pictures!
Ric says "Our trips are about a fundamental change in how we THINK about photography... it's a change that usually produces a revelation in how to get the master shots".
By the end of a Photo Escapades trip, photographers move beyond merely taking the most obvious photo! They have learned how to avoid feeling so bogged down in technicalities that they miss the million dollar shot!
Ric leaves guests without a doubt, that "you do NOT have to be a professional photographer to take great pictures and to feel like a REAL photographer - once the magic is understood!"
Ric has over 30 years experience working in a range of commercial photographic fields. He has flown around Australia in his own light aircraft visiting many remote places. As a photographer, this capability presented him with many amazing opportunities. Ric has combined his passion for both photography and flying into Photo Escapades, teaming up with an experienced air charter operator which owns a variety of aircraft and specialises in outback flying. Their safety record is 100%.
What could be more fun for passionate photographers than to fly in comfort to places that are normally out of reach? And, with a combination of Ric’s know-how and their own equipment, take their photography to another level, arriving home with fabulous pictures and the skills to do it again, anywhere!
