Perth By Night Photography Tour – PA02

In 1962, Perth became known as the “City of Light” when John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth. 
Since then Perth’s iconic skyline has continued to develop and create an amazing canvas of lights at dusk.

Our photography tour leave from the South Perth foreshore and take us first to Matilda Bay via the iconic Old Swan Brewery.  Matilda Bay is a perfect location to start the afternoon, offering a diversity of opportunity and subjects to work with while covering some basic camera techniques. 

One short drive from there will take us to our next location, the famous Kings Park and it’s Botanic Garden.  A walk through one of the largest inner city parks in the world, showcasing an outstanding 
collection of Western Australia flora with some breathtaking views over the city and the Swan River.  

Time allowing, we’ll visit a couple more locations before finishing our tour back in South Perth with some light refreshments while enjoying the sunset by the river. 

We are keeping the best for last .. and before dusk, we’ll set-up one more time to capture some spectacular night images of Perth’s magnificent Skyline
using some tips and tricks that I’ll be sharing with you during the course of the tour. 

Group size of 8 maximum, price at AU$ 167.00
