Workshops are aimed at all levels of experience from beginner to expert.  Whether you want to become more proficient at using your camera and equipment or are already experienced and simply want to be guided to a series of hand picked locations, the choice is yours. 

We cover a range of range of techniques on our courses including long exposure, low-light, astral and lunar photography,  wildlife and nature and panoramas. You will work on post processing the images using a simple workflow to get print ready images.  If you don’t have access to a computer then we can help with that.

Groups size is a maximum of four to allow each student to focus on their own specific areas of interest.   We travel in a modern large 4 wheel drive vehicle as comfort and safety are paramount and it also means we can easily access some of the more remote locations.

For Great Barrier and Tiriri Matangi we organise all the travel and accommodation from Auckland or Whitianga and back again. For the Coromandel Experience we can meet you in the Coromandel or pick you up at Auckland Airport if you are flying in. We also offer Bed, Breakfast and Dinner at our 45 acre eco-sanctuary which looks out to the Pacific.  It is very private but only 20 minutes walk to the beach. 

“What can I say but……..fantastic! Not knowing much beforehand, I got a perfectly suited 3 days course in photography. Learning the technical skills needed, but also developing an eye for light and composition. I loved to have my classroom outdoors in New Zealand’s wonderful nature, the course was highly interactive, spontaneous and fun. Ian is extremely passionate about photography and that passion is infectious!
