Orion Expedition Cruises is offering tuition in professional photography for its April 2011 cruise in Papua New Guinea in association with Australian Geographic Society and Better Photography magazine.

Two leading photographers, Nick Rains and Peter Eastwood will host a series of workshops on photographing seascapes, portrait skills, lighting, detailed macro flora and fauna and tips on editing-software to optimise the final images.

The 11-night voyage departs Cairns on 3 April 2011 with stops at Alotau, Fergusson Island, Tufi Harbour and Madang. Spectacular photography subjects include tropical islands, exotic bird and marine life locations, primitive artworks, historic World War II sites, active volcanoes and a visit to a remote village near the Sepik River.
