Photography adventures in New Zealand with Master of Photography, John Foster as your tutor and guide.
Traveling with other enthusiastic photographers is a perfect and fun way to learn from myself and each other and we don’t mind stopping for more shots!
We build in time to evaluate and critique your shots as we go. It’s not all hard work either, as we do socialise with meals out and enjoy the NZ hospitality.
Organized tours are 1-8 days and offer great value and include some of the most incredible locations around New Zealand. We don't stick to the main highways but adventure off the beaten track at times to suit locations and at the best times to photograph.
The emphasis will be on pro-active learning, amazing locations and fun. No matter what your skill level, you will end up not only with some amazing photos but fond memories and up skilling at the same time.
Travel is normally by comfortable 10 or 12 seat van plus a secure covered trailer. Twin share accommodation is included is tour pricing.
