Photographers are the most enthusiastic visitors to Lord Howe. There are more ‘L series’ lenses than most destinations in Australia, and it’s easy to understand why – the landscape and underwater photography is dazzling.
Everywhere you look on Lord Howe there are amazing colours and textures. The light can be bright to showcase the range of blues in the water, it can be soft to provide tonal contrast in the landscape, and it can be saturated. Best of all, you get to see the sunrise and sunset over water every day. Our Photography Weeks are the best way to complete your Lord Howe Island portfolio, and they’re great fun.
Bird photographers take enthusiasm to a new level. They’re everywhere – in the tops of trees, hidden in the grass, at the most remote locations at dawn – and they’re all looking for the perfect photo. They may already have a good frame of a Red-tailed tropic bird, but there’s always a better one. Sound familiar?
It’s not just the professional and passionate amateur photographers that love Lord Howe. Anyone with a phone and a bit of inspiration can take amazing photos. Where else can you see your husband in knee deep water with hundreds a fish, or your partner climbing a rope up to Goat House, or your teenage daughter with a 15kg kingfish on the line, or your mother on a bike for the first time in 30 years? It’s not all action photography, though, because there are plenty of daily ‘snapshots’ of beautiful beaches and spectacular sunsets.
