What to Expect
For my very first New Zealand Photo Tour, I am thrilled to be teaming up with renowned New Zealand based Photographer William Patino. In my opinion William is the best landscape photographer in NZ. With William with us from start to finish I know we are destined to get some epic conditions and images over the course of the workshop.
This 9 day, 8 night tour will start 9am on September 5th at 9am at the Queenstown Mercure Hotel. It will also end here at 5pm on September 13th. We recommend arriving at least one day prior to the workshop starting. This hotel is just 15 minutes from Queenstown airport.
Our 8 nights will consist of twin share accommodation at 4 star hotels. Twin sharing allows us to make spontaneous booking at the last minute while chasing the light instead of chasing locations for the sake of it. Your going half way around the world, we want to give ourselves the best chances of getting you all in the best locations when they have the best light. We will not rule out single occupancy rooms, there is every chance there may be some available but no guarantees. If there is single occupancy rooms available at different stages during the workshop, it may cost a little extra. There will be no mixed sharing.
We will also have the option to get an unforgettable helicopter flight (2 helicopters between us). This flight will be to access a remote mountain location above the fjords. it will give us an opportunity to get some aerial shots of the mountains and a sunset shoot from a mountain peek. This will be an extra cost of €400 per person and we can decide during the workshop if we/you want to do it or not, depending on weather.
