Join Richard Young and Glen Howey, then Ken Wright and Shaun Barnett, on an 18-day photography tour showcasing some of the South Island’s most iconic landscapes, including Milford Sound and the Moeraki Boulders, along with some of the country’s exceptional coastal wildlife. Timing is planned to make the most of New Zealand’s most settled season in autumn. As a result, we will catch the best of the autumn colours in Central Otago as we travel through the classic southern landscapes covered in golden colours.

For the first four days of our tour, we will be based in Wanaka and on our Autumn Masterclass Workshop with Richard Young and Glen Howey. This workshop is designed to perfect your techniques of shooting autumn landscapes, autumn abstracts and panoramic landscape photography. The workshop offers a mixture of tuition and post-processing sessions combined with 4WD trips into some remote areas to capture the best autumn colours. It will leave you with refined skills to help create some stunning photographs for the rest of the tour.

From Wanaka, we head back to Queenstown to join Ken Wright and Shaun Barnett and journey to Fiordland. The untouched wilderness of Fiordland and Milford and Doubtful Sounds is a trip like no other, where one finds landscapes tough to beat. The northern part of Fiordland’s many sounds, Milford, is famed as one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. Amass with waterfalls cascading directly into the sea from mountains coated with Jurassic rainforest; there is never a time – rain, snow or shine – when the area doesn’t look at its pristine best.

The next part of our tour will see us travelling to the high country in Mt Cook National Park, where we will photograph some fantastic alpine scenery around New Zealand’s highest peak. From here, we will head south to explore the Otago Peninsula, known as New Zealand’s wildlife capital. We will photograph the southern Royal Albatross and stay at Larnach Castle. We will then move to New Zealand’s underrated East Coast, which is full of surprises, including fossilised forests, curious boulders and outstanding coastal scenery. We will also observe some of the vast diversity of rare wildlife this area boasts: penguins, sea lions, fur seals and albatrosses.
