From our simple start back in 2005 as the first to offer photo workshop programs in New Zealand we now have the reputation as New Zealand’s premier photography workshop and photo tour company. Our photo workshops are led by Phillip Bartlett, a New Zealand-born professional landscape photographer with almost 20 years experience. Phillip’s patient, down-to-earth style will inspire and equip you to push the boundaries with your photography to a new dynamic level. Reviews from previous workshop participants will give you an idea of life on a workshop.
We also partner with leading international photographers and photo workshop companies including the highly-regarded US-based Visionary Wild, and world-acclaimed polar photographer and expedition leader Joshua Holko.
Every workshop is open to photographers of all skill levels, as well as non-photographers who regularly join their photographer partner or friend. The inclusive and positive atmosphere we enjoy together makes the journey 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 with you very soon.
In response to this unprecedented situation which is affecting us all, we are closely monitoring travel restrictions and will postpone any upcoming workshops which can not proceed. Looking ahead to our 2021 workshop calendar, for your peace of mind we will be accepting bookings without requiring a deposit. For further information about our booking policy amendments please see the Terms and Conditions. We hope that you all stay safe and healthy and look forward to sharing photo adventures together again very soon.
I was born and raised in Nelson, New Zealand, and am a professional landscape photographer. Some examples of my work can be found on my personal website.
Since pioneering multi-region photo workshops back in 2005 I 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.
It is a privilege to share my love of landscape photography with other passionate photographers and workshop participants often become friends and repeat guests. You are most welcome to join me on any of our amazing workshops.
