The group and travel arrangements were organised and led by energetic and inspirational photographer and teacher Ian Rolfe  - see Ian Rolfe Lightscapes

Talented photographer and teacher Peter Walton  - see Peter Walton Photography - also accompanied the expedition.  Both these master photographers were invaluable resources, working with groups and individuals in the field and conducting tutorials in the evening.

The members of the group were mostly from Melbourne, but some were from interstate.  Their patience and support and willingness to share were greatly appreciated.
