Together Michael and Mark form a team of two working professionals, who are passionate about their photography and together run "Trekabout Photography". Well known and respected in the industry, they offer an itinerary of courses and workshops that are becoming increasingly popular with new and returning participants.

The best thing is anyone can come along on these workshops, regardless whether you use a 'point and shoot' or if you are a few levels above using a DSLR and want to learn more and 'experience the difference'. A varied number of workshop options are available to select from, allowing you to learn different techniques and styles of photography, all at natural and stunning locations.

Whether you choose a full day workshop such as Mountain to Beach (Sunshine Coast), Australia Zoo, Mountain Experience (O'Rielly's), a half day focus on Macro workshop, (Mt Cootha) or a night time 'city lights' option, you will learn, have fun and be leaving with more 'skills and ideas' to put into your own photography practice.
Weekend and extended workshop options are also offered, ranging from 3 to 8 days, including destinations such as Girraween National Park, amongst granite landscape and abundant wildflowers. Michael and Mark are always looking at 'new places' and 'new experiences' for their participants, to keep the learning interesting.

Recently two new fabulous destination workshops were added; Lord Howe and Norfolk Island. Read about and view all the workshop options here.
I have been on couple of Trekabout workshops and I find both Mark and Michael are easy to communicate with and are able to easily impart their knowledge, so here is a little bit more about each of them below.
A snippet on Michael Snedic (member of AIPP, Australian Institute of Professional Photographers).
Michael is one of Australia's "most published" nature photographers and his photos have appeared in Australian Geographic Magazine, Wildlife Australia and many more publications. In fact too many publications to list here, but these also include books, billboards and posters for museums, councils and galleries. Additionally Michael is also a 'freelance writer' with regular articles featuring in the popular 'Australian Photography' magazine.
A snippet on Mark Rayner (member AIPP, Australian Institute of Professional Photographers).
Practising photography since his early teens, Mark started out by assisting his "Uncle Rayner", a respected and known photographer from the Stanthorpe region. His skills are complimentary to Michaels', as in addition to Mark's love of nature photography, he is an accomplished wedding and portrait photographer, and additionally an expert in digital workflow and post-processing techniques. Appreciate learning some of the 'simple and effective processing to get the best out of your photography'.
With such a diverse range of skills and more than 40 years of experience between the two, if you are 'keen to learn' and decide to 'book in', you might find that you end up following these guys to all sorts of destinations.
