About your photoshoot ~

Lily and the team at Island Tigress photography are now available to make your photographic dreams come true. 

We do this because it's fun, it's creative and it's infectious, the people who live here are proud of their home and they want to share its magic with you and the world. 

We operate on Saturdays and your 8 hour photoshoot includes a tour of 5 locations.

You don't need a car once you get to the island, just catch the ferry over from Cleveland in the morning and return to the mainland whenever you're ready ($14 return).

Stradbroke Island is a magical place of healing and feminine energy.

We will meet you at the ferry terminal at Dunwich and together we will catch the public bus and shoot the following locations.

Amity Point
Adder Rock

(lunch at Chillers Cafe)
Point Lookout & South Gorge
Brown Lake
Myora Springs


Each tour caters for between 1 and 5 people.

Not only will we photograph you, we want you to think of this as a photography masterclass. You will learn new creative tips and techniques, as well as some of the history and sacred culture of this magnificent location. 

  We have only six places left before the end of 2019
