The recent Kimberley PODAS workshop was an incredible experience. The Crew of the True North and the group of photographers on the trip were the absolute best. As you can see by this image we are having a great time.
On the PODAS Kimberley a group of the Phase One support team as well as some attendees spent a night off the boat doing Heli-Camping. The main goal was to do some star trails and long exposures with the Phase One Achromatic Back . Here is a shot made by Niels Knudsen of Phase One and it shows the Milky Way and was converted to B&W. Great image showing off the ability of the IQ260 to do long exposures.
The Kimberley PODAS was one of the more unique workshops PODAS has done to date. Actually based on what we know it was the first cruise based workshop into the Kimberley region ever. Read what Mark Stothard says about his experience by CLICKING HERE.

So what did you do this morning? On this PODAS workshop during the morning of June 4th we woke up for a sunrise shoot as the True North cruised the Prince Regent River. We had coffee then Eggs Benedict on the bow of the ship. Then we turned a corner and saw this amazing waterfall the King Cascade. The Captain then drove the boat into the falls and anyone that wanted to and there were a number of hearty souls were able to take a falls shower. Of course we had the Phase One cameras and waterproof housing as well as a lot of people taking photos of us. It was a blast. Then we got into the tenders and some people climbed to the top of the waterfalls and others went ashore to shoot the a distance and some of us went crocodile hunting (photography wise). That was followed by morning tea with tasty scones. Then some went on the helicopter to shoot rock art, and some went fishing. And, all of this was before lunch. What an incredible trip so far. What amazing images all of us are getting. Lots of fun. And now it is lunch time.
In less than 24 hours we will begin our PODAS workshop on the True North in the Kimberley region of Austrailia. This will be an amazing adventure. Here is the True North at dock prepping for our trip. We won’t be able to post much during the trip. Here is the link to the True North Facebook page. You may be able to find daily pictures of our activities there.https://www.facebook.com/northstarcruises
