Landscape and Travel Photography Workshop

You’re invited to New Zealand for a once-in-a-lifetime photo adventure of epic proportions! You’ll end up with great photos and stories, no matter your skill level.

We’ve prepared a pretty intense plan for your time here. You won’t get much rest. At the end of the adventure, your head will be full of awesome new skills and your computer will be full of beautiful photos. When it’s all done, you’ll sleep as long and peacefully as a Hobbit in the Shire!

Watch a Preview and Hear from Past Attendees

Everything gets started the first evening with a group dinner and casual sunset shots. This will be an informal gathering where we can talk about the adventures to come…

What things might I see?

New Zealand made such a powerful impression on Trey that he put together the video below from his first 30 days and 30 nights in the country. This is a small glimpse of the epic landscapes you’ll see while on this photo adventure! You should also check out the many New Zealand photos Trey has here on his blog.

Put on your headphones and turn up the volume to get the best experience!

  • Warm clothes for the day and a coat for the night… (layers, layers). View average temperatures
  • Good shoes for hiking, although we don’t anticipate any multi-kilometer hikes
  • A sense of fun and curiosity; Those two elements will be key to getting the most out of the workshop
