EarthScape Tours is a fresh new endeavour from South Australian landscape photographers Ben Goode and Joel Durbridge. We have been featured worldwide, won awards, sold prints all round the world and have years of experience doing what we love the most - taking gorgeous landscape images! Now we want to help you take your photography to the next level and have a lot of fun and adventure along the way.
We are currently in the process of planning Photographic Tours in beautiful South Australian locations such as the Fleurieu Peninsula, Yorke Peninsula, Kangaroo Island and the Limestone Coast. To kick everything off though - we have the 2015 Camel Safari in the Northern Flinders Ranges. Check the tours page for details!
Ben first picked up a camera 10 years ago and has been passionate about landscape photography ever since. Coming from a graphic design background and with a love of travel, this was the perfect creative passion for him. After spending a few years overseas in colder climates, Ben officially started his business Earth Art Photography in 2011 and since then has been providing stunning landscape photography to happy customers all round Australia. A perfectionist who is always striving to improve, Ben is constantly on the lookout for 'the shot'.
Launching EarthScape Tours with good mate Joel Durbridge was the culmination of a long term dream and he is pumped to be taking on this new challenge!
He currently uses a Sony A7R with Canon 16-35mm, Sony 16-35mm, Sony 50mm and Sony 70-200mm lenses with Lee ND filters, and an Induro tripod.
Joel grew up in the township of Mount Gambier and was fortunate enough to spend his childhood years amongst the beautiful natural surrounds offered by the South East. At the age of nine Joel moved to Adelaide with his mother; but he would return to the South East in the school holidays. During these visits Joel would often spend time on camping trips in the amazing Grampians; and it was here that Joel's passion for photography and landscapes was ignited.
As time passed and Joel began to develop as a photographer, he sampled a number of different cameras: from his first point and shoot camera to a Ricoh, to a Canon SLR, then onto a Nikon Coolpix 8700 digital. With a love of body boarding and frequent travels in search of waves, Joel began to wish for a way to capture the waves he and his mates had just scored. Joel wanted to freeze the experience of each boarding journey to make a timeless record that could be relived in the years to come. For Joel, photography was the way to make the breathtaking moments of life last for more than just a moment.
He currently uses a Nikon D800 with a Nikkor 16-35mm wide-angle, with various filters, remote cable for slow shutter work and a Manfrottto tripod.
