From this Saturday, I will be back on board True North assisting the PODAS team to make sure that the first PODAS cruise goes 100% to plan.
PODAS have booked the whole boat and we have guests coming from all over the world to enjoy the adventure on True North and to use a Phase One camera, as well as the opportunity to be tutored by a range of very experienced photographic tutors. (Everyone on board will be given a Phase One to use for the entire trip)!
On board, as tutors, we will have our very own Christian Fletcher, Michael Reichman from Luminous Landscapes and Art Wolf of National Geographic fame, as well as the new CEO of Luminous Landscapes, Kevin Raber, with special guest on board, Thomas Knoll (the inventor of Photoshop)!!!
Christian and I have worked together with one of our senior Captains, Brad Benbow to customise the cruise from Broome to Wyndham to ensure we get to all the iconic locations at the best possible time, as well as getting to a few new ones!
We are going to have a daily competition on board that we are hoping that our friends at home can get involved with as judges!
We will be asking all the photographers on board to upload their best image from the day to our True North facebook page and the photo that gets the most likes the following day will win a prize.
In order to see the photos and to make your vote please to to the True North website here and like the page so that you will see the shots as they are uploaded. Feel free to vote for more that one image as the one that wins will still be the one that has the most votes!
I will also be posting my own images on this blog and my facebook page as well.
A further announcement from True North is as follows:
On Tuesday night the TRUE NORTH was announced as the Best Expedition or Adventure Cruising ship at the prestigious 2013 Australian Gourmet Traveller Travel Awards.
This further success follows our outstanding performance at the recent Luxury Travel Gold List Awards where the TRUE NORTH won Best Luxury Adventure Travel Experience, Best Luxury Cruise Company and, Best Luxury Cruise Ship (small) – the first time an entrant has won 3 Gold List awards in a single year! The ship was also an earlier winner of Cruise Passenger Magazine’s Best Soft Adventure Cruise Ship.
So stay tuned and enjoy the fun!
