Friday approx 12pm
We will meet at Nelson Airport and travel together to Golden Bay (approx 2.5 hours).
We will head down to Wharariki Beach to capture the sunset at this amazing beach taking advantage of low tide for the best compositions. In the evening we will take the opportunity to photograph the night skies if it is clear.
We will choose a sunrise location at one of the beaches nearby before exploring local landmarks such as Kaihoka Lakes for native forest and lake reflections, and Salisbury Falls to practice long exposures with flowing water.
The afternoon will be spent undertaking an in-depth session in Lightroom editing images from the weekend so far and learning techniques to get the best results from your images.
We will choose a sunset location based on the group preference and weather conditions in the area (potentially returning to Wharariki Beach if the group is keen and the weather is good). Astrophotography will also be planned after dark if the skies are clear.
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 our accommodation for breakfast and to pack up.
Sunday approx 2pm
If there is time on the way back to Nelson we will stop in at The Grove Scenic Reserve and the Jamie Seddon shipwreck in Motueka for one last photographic opportunity. You will leave the workshop 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.
