Fiordland - Milford Sound Landscape Photography

September 20-25 2018

October 3-8 2019

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 photo tour/workshop inspired and energized. You will know more about photography but what’s more important, you will know more about yourself and what photography is to you.


THe Critique Process

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 photo tour/workshop satiated: knowing more about photography but what’s more important, knowing more about yourself and what photography means to you.

The final day will be a printmaking workshop where Jackie  will help you edit and print one of your images.  Using her EIZO Monitor and Canon imagePROGRAF Pro 1000 printer.  

A selection of edited images will also become part of the  QCCP Fiordland 2018 book. 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 a selection of images direct to our computer for the feedback sessions. 

For professional photographers wanting to enter images made while on the tour/workshop this is allowable as long as you were not under instruction at the time of capture and the idea of the image was your own.
