On this premium 6-day landscape photography workshop, you’ll experience and capture what I consider not just some of the very best landscapes in New Zealand, but the world. After many years running workshops in New Zealand and dedicating my career to capturing it’s beauty, I’ve designed this photography workshop to give my guests the best and most memorable experience, as well as the strongest collection of images and skills to take home.
Limited to just 6 people, my ‘Ultimate New Zealand’ workshops allow for quality one on one learning, less impact on the land and more room on location. From the rugged Southern Alps in the Mount Cook and Mackenzie region, down to my home and backyard of Fiordland, you’ll capture everything from vibrant glacial lakes, snow capped mountains, rugged valleys, lush rainforests and much more. As a bonus, I keep the itinerary completely flexible, so we can avoid poor weather and properly chase the light and favourable shooting conditions, just how successful landscape photography truly works.
From a learning perspective, I’ll help you attain the knowledge and skills to see the world in a whole new way and create world class imagery. Out in the field I provide complete and individualised tuition and will also conduct post-processing seminars during the workshop, helping you across the entire image making process.
These Are The Places I Live And Breathe
Forests, Mountains, Lakes, Waterfalls, Glaciers, Fiords and More
“On all my workshops, my goal is not to simply help you take a nice photo, but to bring you face to face with intimate and unforgettable experiences in the natural world. I’ll also share with you the technical knowledge and creative understanding to carry with you on the rest of your photography journey.” WP
Milford Sound + Cruise
Experience a location I know very well, the iconic Milford Sound, where glacially carved mountains rise vertically from the depths of the sea. We’ll also have a 2hr cruise, which provides a very unique photography experience.
Fiordland National Park
My home and one part of the world I’m most passionate about. Let me share with you a landscape born of storms, with towering mountains, vibrant mossy forests, winding rivers and flowing waterfalls.
Option For Aerials
Weather pending, there will be the additional option for an aerial shoot over river braids and mountains, for an unforgettable shooting experience.
Mt Cook And The Southern Alps
Yes, we will explore the big peaks and tallest mountains in NZ, in a region surrounded by glacial lakes, milky rivers and ancient glaciers.

What People are Saying
“encouraging and patient ”
“He was quick to respond to any correspondence, encouraging, patient and adapted to suit any situation. It has changed my way of looking at our beautiful nature and the eagerness to take more photos cannot be ignored thanks to Will.”
Leanne Cullen – NZ
“raw and passionate”
“Will understands that you need to have flexibility when shooting and doesn’t have you lined up in a row like a tourist, which is similar to other workshops I have attended. If you want to learn true, raw and passionate photography, a Patino photography workshop is for you.”
Nick Kennedy – Sydney AU
“It was a very productive learning period in the art of landscape photography. I have no hesitation in highly recommending his expertise and personable nature.”
Rob Weir – North Island NZ
“the most memorable experience”
“I’m a three time attendee (Canada, Iceland and Patagonia) with Will. He tailors the workshop content to the skill level of the attendees. He strives to bring you to the best places at the best times for the most memorable experiences.”
