Rees Valley

5 HOURS OF PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDING + TUITION. $380.00 PER PERSON OR BOOK THE WHOLE CAR AND TAKE UP TO FOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR NZ$1020.00

YOUR GUIDES ARE AWARD WINNING PHOTOGRAPHERS MIKE LANGFORD OR JACKIE RANKEN.

 

Both are Grand Masters of the NZIPP and AIPP Photography Institutes. 

On this Photo Safari we travel through a gorge that opens out into a glaciered valley with views into the Forbes Range. This is a secluded area with 4WD access only.  Picturesque waterfalls offer a great opportunity to experiment with slow shutter speeds and allow you to make images that you would be proud to print and hang on your wall. 

Your tutors Mike Langford or Jackie Ranken will help you learn how to take your camera off automatic and fully utilise your camera in a creative and experimental way. 

The day is spent photographing in places suited to the weather conditions, allowing everyone time and circumstance to express their own vision, and at the same time receive constructive and appropriate critiques of their images. 

Jackie and Mike have Canon EOS 750D, 7DMKII, 70D, 80D cameras available for use as well as extra lenses (10-22mm wide angle, 60mm/100m macro or 70-200mm telephoto lens), tripods and filters.
