The weekend workshop will kick off at 2pm at Hidden Lake Hotel with drinks and nibbles and an introduction to the workshop plan.
There will be time to capture a winter sunset locally around Cambridge and after dark we will head out for astrophotography to Lake Karapiro if the skies are clear.
We will meet at 5am to travel to Lake Tarawera for sunrise at one of the many beautiful jetties on the lake. A packed breakfast and lunch will be provided by the hotel.
There will plenty of opportunities to capture a variety of scenery during the day at waterfalls in the region such as Wairere Falls at the Buried Village, Okere Falls as well as a trip into the Redwood Forest. We will end up for sunset at one of the jetties on the eastern side of Lake Rotorua or in Kuirau Park.
If the skies are clear we will head back out to Lake Tarawera to capture the most amazing night skies you will see in the North Island before driving back to Cambridge.
There are plenty of options for a local sunrise within a short drive so we will pick a location based on group preference before heading back to Hidden Lake Hotel for a session on editing in Lightroom while enjoying a tasty breakfast provided by the hotel.
The Rotorua landscape photography workshop officially ends and everyone is free to travel home. You will leave overflowing with a wealth of new knowledge, exhilarated by the weekend experiences and keen to try out all the new techniques and tips you have learned.
BONUS: There will be a selection of Sony cameras and lenses to try out over the weekend, but there is no requirement to shoot with Sony gear to benefit from the workshop.
"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.
I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to improve their photography skills. I learnt so much this weekend and am so excited to practice my new skills. I have a lot more confidence and knowledge about what I'm doing and a heightened enthusiasm.
I really enjoyed going to new locations with expert guidance in each place. Meghan is super friendly and happy to answer all questions - a great tutor.
Fantastic introduction to a variety of areas in the Waikato to take photos. We were encouraged to experiment and Meghan has a genuine interest in other's perspectives and the photos we all took.
Fun and lots of learning while feeling like a few friends going out to get good photos!
Meghan is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful manner to teach.
I learnt so much about my camera and different ways to compose images. I learnt how to get my aperture, shutter and ISO to all work together.
Perfect. I have learnt more in one weekend than I ever imagined I could.
