Transport will leave at 10.00am from Christchurch Airport . If you prefer to travel directly to the workshop accommodation, you will need to be Braemar Station by 3pm.
Upon arrival, we will have an introduction to the weekend before heading out to shoot sunset from Lake Pukaki.
Over the course of the weekend we will explore and photograph the Mackenzie Region looking gorgeous at this time of year with a backdrop of wildflowers: lupins, daisies and more!
On one of the mornings we will take to the skies to explore the area with a 45 minute scenic flight over the mountains during sunrise and golden hour with Air Safaris.
We will also incorporate two editing sessions during the weekend to maximise your knowledge and learning of the best post-processing techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop.
The exact locations visited will depend on both weather conditions and where the best displays of colour are, which changes every year.
Note: we will schedule in some free time for rest on both days before/after the editing sessions due to the very long daylight hours at this time of year (4-4.30am starts and 10-10.30pm finish)
After a final sunrise session and group breakfast in Tekapo, the workshop will conclude at approx 10am for a 2pm return at Christchurch Airport.
Andrew is a talented NZ landscape photographer based in the Waikato. We have known each other for years and meet up often for photography adventures in our local area as well as travelling around the South Island together on several occasions, so I'm thrilled to have him co-host this workshop with me.
Andrew's work is displayed on billboards in the Waikato and in 2020 he was a finalist in the Sigma D-Photo photography competition for Landscapes.

"Meghan is a great photography tutor. She explains things clearly and precisely and takes the time to make sure you understand. She knows a wide variety of techniques and styles for learners to try."
Meghan's workshop is a great mix of useful skills and fundamental concepts as well as lots of fun. Meghan is such a lovely person that would like to share anything that you will be happy to spend two full days with her. The workshop helped me a lot.
Having followed Meghan and her captivating portrayal of New Zealand’s landscape on instagram for over 5 years, I’ve finally had the opportunity to join her 5-week online live photography course. Meghan has a gift to explain the “how to” of landscape photography in a very clear, easy to understand and enjoyable manner. Her depth of knowledge in every aspect will prove a more than worthwhile investment for anyone who enjoys this form of photography, whether novice or experienced.
Real, honest, down to earth and very talented photographer. Very helpful with all the little things, takes time to explain information and makes sure it is understood. Just completed an online Zoom photography course which was well run and incredibly informative..
Meghan is an amazing tutor. Her effective communication and course outline was exactly what I was looking for. I bought my first camera a few weeks before this course and lucky enough this course covered camera settings and composition which every beginner looks forward to. From looking after your gear, settings, pro tips, composition and editing, this course was every beginners dream come true. I look forward to the next stage of this course and mind you this was quite affordable and full of knowledge. I have become a better photographer. Thank you and I look forward to more content from you.
Meghan is not only an awesome photographer but a wonderful teacher. I love her delivery style and this course is a great introduction to landscape photography. Meghan is also very encouraging and is very open and detailed with sharing her knowledge during her classes. The course structure was well thought out and presented in easy to digest modules. I look forward to learning more from Meghan as she grows her class schedule. Highly recommend!
Meghan has been the most helpful and caring photographer I have had the pleasure to meet, she has that special quality (and patience) that very few are blessed with to be the perfect teacher and along with her amazing photography is a mentor to us all... I have been so privileged to have her assistance on my learning journey, something I will be forever grateful for...
Totally amazing time with Meghan. Her knowledge is amazing and the willingness to teach is fantastic. I never thought i could learn so much in such a short time but I did. I highly recommend Meghan to anyone wanting to learn and develop their skills. I cant wait to work with Meghan again soon.
Perfect. I have learnt more in one weekend than I ever imagined I could.
Fill out the form below and I will be back in touch soon.
