Join Richard Young and Glen Howey, then Ken Wright and Joel Staveley, 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. This tour is timed perfectly to capture the best of the autumn colours in Central Otago as we travel through the classic southern landscapes adorned with 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 photographing autumn landscapes, autumn abstracts and panoramic landscapes. 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.

For the next part of the tour, we will travel to the untouched wilderness of Fiordland and on to Milford and Doubtful Sounds. The most northerly part of Fiordland’s many sounds, Milford, is famed as one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. Doubtful Sound is far more remote and scenic than the well-known Milford Sound, offering a true wilderness experience. We will stay 2 nights there on a boat to capture the landscapes from a different perspective on the tranquil fiords.

Our final leg of the tour will see us travelling to the high country of Mt Cook National Park, where we will photograph some of the amazing alpine scenery around New Zealand’s highest peak. From there, 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. Then, we will journey 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 huge diversity of rare wildlife that this area boasts: penguins, sea lions, fur seals and albatrosses.
