... will be held at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat in Queensland from 20-25 November this year. O'Reilly's is a perfect place to run this workshop. There are loads of animals to discover, spaces and stories to explore. Here's a film we made at O'Reilly's a few years ago.

Bill talks about his experience on tour

"I've been following Jason for many years. It was incredible for me to spend time with him on this trip. I learnt a lot about film-making and photography but what impressed me the most was how both Nick and Jason work long hours to get the shots they needed. I've now experienced that first hand." Bill Lamb, (photographer)

Nick Hayward, Film-maker

Nick is one of Australia’s top international cinematographers and an award-winning wildlife film cameraman and producer. Famously, Nick’s lyrebird sequence with BBC & Attenborough was voted by UK audiences as their “most favourite Attenborough moment of all time”. A lifetime wildlife enthusiast, Nick says, “I’ve always loved to contribute to conservation so I feel this is an interesting way to do it.”

Simon Mustoe, Wildiaries founder

Several years ago Simon Mustoe created Wildiaries with the sole purpose of “connecting people to nature”. Simon has spent a lifetime traveling and observing nature, running expeditions and working as a wildlife expert for large companies. Simon says “the emotional bond to home is a feeling we can all understand. When we travel we seek the company of those who care most about the place they live, nature’s power to inspire comes through strongly”.

"... to observe a wildlife film shoot and spend time learning alongside experts, experiencing the same things with them - on the same level - it was amazing!" Jessica Lea, (photographer, Jessica Lea Photography)
