Since founding the first New Zealand photography workshop company back in 2005, we continue to lead the way with world-class workshops for passionate photographers who are looking for something above the ordinary. Our vision is to continually innovate and offer new, exciting photography experiences for regular and first-time guests alike.
Our photo workshops are led by Phillip Bartlett., a New Zealand professional landscape photographer. Phillip’s patient and detailed teaching style will inspire you to create photographs of substance and originality. Reviews from previous workshop participants will help you to get a picture of what to expect.
In 2019 we are only offering two New Zealand photo workshops due to requests to lead, and co-lead, trips to Indonesia and Tasmania. For New Zealand 2020 we are introducing two new workshop styles: Mentor Series and Composition. Details for both are currently being finalised. Indonesia and Tasmania will again feature on our 2020 photography tour schedule.
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.
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.
