Since founding the first New Zealand photography workshop company in 2005, we have continued to produce world-class workshops for passionate photographers from around the globe. Our photo workshops are led by Phillip Bartlett., New Zealand’s most sought-after professional landscape photography instructor. With only six participants on each workshop, non-photographers are also most welcome, Phillip’s easy-to-follow and patient teaching style will inspire you to create photographs of substance and originality.
In addition to our own workshops we have also partnered with reputed global photography workshop company Visionary Wild, whose instructors include some of the most recognised names in contemporary landscape and wildlife photography, and world-acclaimed polar photographer Joshua Holko, who specialises in extreme photo expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic.
Every workshop is open to photographers of all skill levels, as well as non-photographers. The inclusive and positive atmosphere we enjoy as a small group of six photographers makes the journey together as memorable as the photography we experience. You are most welcome to be a part of any of our workshops and we look forward to photographing the amazing New Zealand landscapes with you very soon.
I was born and raised in Nelson, New Zealand, and am a professional landscape photographer.
Just over twelve years ago I started guiding photographers and have been referred to as the most highly regarded landscape photography instructor in New Zealand. I believe this is because I know where the best coffee, and hot chocolate, is to be had no matter where we are.
The most valuable asset of digital photography, from a learning perspective, is being able to instantly assess each capture. This is immensely helpful when I am working with photographers to develop their individual style and master new techniques.
It is a privilege to share my enthusiasm for the New Zealand landscape with other passionate photographers and many workshop participants have become friends and repeat clients. You are most welcome to join me on any of our amazing workshops.
