Overview/What to Expect
This is a small group, 6-day photography workshop exploring some of the most incredible locations in the stunning South Island of New Zealand. Mount Cook and the Southern Alps, Milford Sound and Fiordland, Lake Ohau, Tekapo, Wanaka and Queenstown – this workshop covers it all.
From sunrise to sunset, night photography and post-processing, I’ll be using my local knowledge and experience to make sure we are at the right places when it matters most and share with you all I know about photography and what goes in to making my images. With a small group size of 6, we have a personal and flexible learning environment, allowing for plenty of one-on-one time to address your own goals as well as being able to freely explore and find your own compositions when in the field – not lining up in a long row getting the same shot as everyone else.
Your photography and enjoyment is my commitment and I delight in seeing you capture the images you’ve always dreamed of, taking home the skills to do it again and again. This is my love, my passion and my obsession. For over 5 years I’ve been professionally running workshops for people worldwide. Photography has changed my life and I want you to experience the joy of this art too.
