You will start this spectacular tour by Ken Wright & Shaun Barnett for a 4-day photography workshop on the awe-inspiring Taranaki coast to improve your landscape & coastal photography. Staying for 3 nights in the Ahu Ahu Beach Villas, just outside New Plymouth. If any New Zealand volcano has the perfect shape, it is Mt Taranaki—which, at 2518m, is the second-highest peak in the North Island. This volcano forms the centrepiece of Egmont National Park, one of the country’s oldest national parks. We will explore the many contrasting photography opportunities from mountain to sea.
After heading up to Auckland, Richard Young will join us on a seven-day photography workshop showcasing the best of Northland’s scenery. This location offers ideal locations for long exposure photography, wild coastlines, waterfalls, and classic jetty shots. Historically, Northland was the main hub for activity in New Zealand—and to date, it retains numerous remarkable landmarks: Russell, the former capital; the Treaty of Waitangi grounds, the home of modern New Zealand; giant sand dunes created by volcanoes; the meeting place of the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea; stunning bays; waterfalls; Kauri forest—Northland has it all!
The never-ending summers of Northland make it a beautiful place to relax. As it is a deceptively-large region, we have set aside plenty of time to explore and capture some of the lushest environment in the country.
