Travel

I am always happy to travel, both interstate and overseas.

If you would like to book a date with me outside of Sydney, then please let me know and we can work out what my travel would cost.

Availability:

Due to the physical effort required by extended, or overseas travel, I only book four major trips each year.  This gives me time to properly prepare and to recover afterwards.  I currently have three overseas trips booked for 2018, so I can take one more booking – in August or September.  If you would like to reserve this time, please let me know asap as these trips have filled up fast for 2018.  I am also open to advance bookings for 2019 if you are planning ahead.

Locations:

I travel to Melbourne more than any other city in Australia, so if you are interested in seeing me in Melbourne, please let me know and we can arrange a time.

I am also now available in Canberra on request.  Just drop me a line with your preferred dates and we can arrange a time.

Travel costs:

Bookings outside of Sydney: If you book me to travel outside of Sydney you will need to cover my travel and accommodation costs.  I will calculate them for you when you contact me, and they must be paid in advance.  Travel costs are non-refundable if you have to cancel once I have bought airline tickets and paid for hotels

Photography:

It’s great to take photos and have a record of your travel to be able to look back on and remember the experience. But it comes with the downside that you often spend a lot of your time looking through the lens of a camera instead of getting to enjoy the scenery and the experience.

When you travel with me, I can relieve you of this burden.  I am a capable photographer and have professional equipment – a Canon 1DX mkii camera with a range of lenses, a dive housing for underwater photography, a GoPro for action, and a DJI Phantom 4 drone.  So no matter what our trip is, if you want me to, I can capture all the special moment and the best views for you.

And when we get home, I will process up all of the images for you to keep, and also compile the best shots into a photobook for you and have copies printed.  I don’t charge extra for this service, as it is included in extended bookings.

My photobooks have become a regular part of my travel bookings and have been very well received.

International travel:

If you would like me to travel internationally – either with you, or to you – then my rates are as follows:

If I have to fly internationally then I charge $1000 per day of travel.

Once we arrive at our destination, my full day rate applies (see my Prices page).

I am happy to make extended bookings (more than one full day), but under the following conditions:

  • Eight hours for sleep each night
  • Two hours per day of private time
  • One day out of every seven to myself

Long duration bookings are taxing and can be stressful.  For me to be at my best, I need good sleep and regular time to myself to rest and centre myself.  If I have this, then I can provide a premium service for the full duration of the booking.

John.
