Tin City – Nelson Bay Workshop Tour with Jarrod Castaing & John Armytage 

Jarrod Castaing is an internationally award-winning fine art photographer specialising in breathtaking landscape photography.


Jarrod is also one of the nicest guys you would ever meet. An inspiration to my Photography career.

He has been fortunate enough to travel through over 50 countries (and counting!), his passion is capturing those moments of light that only last for a few minutes, twice a day, celebrating the incredible beauty of our world.

Featured in publications and exhibitions worldwide, including the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington DC, his museum-quality Limited Edition Prints are held in private and corporate collections around the globe.

His annual photography workshops include chasing the Northern Lights in Iceland, the Lofoten beaches in Arctic Norway, and capturing the colours of Autumn in both New Zealand and the Canadian Rockies.
