Queenstown to Christchurch, South Island, New Zealand
Dates: September 20-October 1, 2020
Cost: $8749 double occupancy, $1195 single supplement, $1800 deposit due upon registration.
Description: Timed to photograph New Zealand in the peak of Spring season, this workshop covers an impressive variety of awe-inspiring South Island landscapes. In September, snow-draped mountain ranges abound and the soft, clear light offers excellent shooting conditions. We will be photographing many of New Zealand’s iconic landscapes, including Aoraki (Mt. Cook) and the Southern Alps, Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound, Wanaka, Fox Glacier and Lake Matheson. During a cruise on Milford Sound we hope to photograph the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin, Dusky Dolphins, albatross, petrels and other marine bird species. Match all of this with comfortable lodging, Kiwi cuisine, a tour in the wine country and we are in for a great photographic adventure.
Our smaller group size of only 8 participants will provide for more photographic support and more comfortable transportation.
