Day 1

We will pick you up early from Queenstown or you can meet us at Mt Cook at lunchtime. After assembling in our comfortable conference room at the Hermitage Hotel, we will run through an introductory programme of advanced camera setup for landscape photography and tutorials on composition along with advanced topics such as hyperfocal distance for getting sharp photographs. Later in the afternoon, we will head out for our first sunset in the Tasman Valley.

Day 2

The day begins with an early sunrise shoot over Mt Cook before heading back to the hotel for breakfast. The rest of the day will be taken up alternating between locations in the park and covering a whole range of techniques for advancing your photography. Tonight we will capture sunset in the Hooker Valley.

Day 3

This morning we will do a ski-plane flight (included in the price) over Mt Cook to learn the basics of aerial photography, along with a stunning landing up high on the Tasman Glacier. We will then spend the morning in the hotel conference room to offer some group critique of the photographs from the last days and an in-depth post-production session covering the processing of landscape photographs. Sunset this evening might see us returning to a location with the park or venturing further afield to explore more of the beautiful Mackenzie Country.

Day 4

Another sunrise shoot to capture some of the first morning light across the Southern Alps. We will then help you process your two best images from the workshop and produce a finished 16x22" fine art print of them to take home. The workshop will finish after lunch today, with return transport then provided back to Queenstown to meet with late afternoon flights.
