Fiordland - Milford Sound Landscape Photography

September 14-19 2017

This workshop about photographing the contrasting landscapes of Fiordland, from the Eglington Valley to the watery depths of the sound. Fiordland is majestic and volatile, but how do you capture this in your camera? A small group of six photographers can join Grand Master Photographers Mike Langford and Jackie Ranken on an adventure to find these answers.

We will teach you all we know in regards to camera craft and technique. The downloading and critique sessions are the foundation of the learning process. We discuss composition, design and celebrate all your photographic efforts. Our aim is for you to leave the workshop satiated: knowing more about photography but what’s more important, knowing more about yourself and what photography is to you.

 THe Critique Process

For all multi-day photo workshops, students will need to select images from each photographic session. These images will be downloaded onto our computer and will be data projected for the group to see.

We will go through each photographer's work and give constructive feedback. The whole point of the workshop is to achieve growth and by showing one another images in an open, and trusting atmosphere there is amazing potential to improve! 

The edited images will become part of a book we will make at the end of the workshop. Copyright of the images remains with the photographers at all times.

If you don’t have your own laptop please let us know, we can download images directly off your camera card for the review..
