Australian landscape photography –
Between sky and sea

Australia’s photos – Little impressions from the road

A little tour of an essay at Australian landscape photography : from Cairns on the East Coast to stunning Perth in the West. I kept inspired from day 1 to the last during my 2 years Down Under, getting slowly into travel photography… and keeping a taste of Australian landscapes. To feel again in love with the most inspiring places I saw in this country I just can’t forget.

Why to start with travel photography in Australia ? Well, it’s just a stunning playground to practice on different types of photography : landscapes, cloudscapes, cities with their busy vibes and street sceneries… You can practice and find your own style without lacking of inspiration. Plus, and it’s super important when being a beginner photographer : landscapes are so amazing that you have better chances to get good photos and Instagram material, even when starting out !

Another coast, another vibe. And my absolute love go to the West coast. If I could, I’d go back there, find a husband and just stay ! To do Australian landscape photography, the West Coast will give you plenty of wilderness to dive in. Australia’s travel photos over there are made of beaches with turquoise waters and white sand beaches I still consider the best ones I’ve seen in all my travels.

Australian landscape photography on the Australian East Coast is everything except boring ! Mountains and skies on fire in Sydney’s outback : checked. Contrats of green, blue and yellow on Fraser island beaches : cool. Mystic vibes in Cairns’ rainforest : triole checked, because this spot is really amazing.

There are many types of photography to practice on : cityscape, landscape, forests… And all seasons to be found all year round, from cold and rainy Melbourne to tropical Cairns.
