Discover all the great places to photograph Aoraki Mount Cook while at the same time learning lots of new and classic camera craft skills. This Photo Safari will help you to make photographs that ‘feel’ like you felt when you were there. Its about making images that communicate not just a record shot.

5 HOURS OF PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDING + TUITION. $380.00 PER PERSON

OR 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 from Twizel through the Tasman Valley and back. 

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. The walk to the view of the Tasman Glacier is an option from March through to December. Our preference is to take you away from the crowds (Dec-Feb) and teach you to make photographs of subjects that others would not think of making.

Canon EOS  7DMKII, 70D, 80D cameras available for use if you choose (at no extra cost) as well as Canon DSLR lenses (10-22mm wide angle, 60mm/100m macro or 70-200mm telephoto lens), tripods and filters.
