Our Mt Cook workshop is designed as an ideal program to expand your skills as a photographer, with top landscape photographers Richard Young and Rob Brown.

We will base ourselves in Mt Cook Village at the comfortable Hermitage Hotel and here we have access to a conference room where there will be time during the evenings to download our photographs and work on post processing and critique.

Over this workshop, you will learn to shoot a diverse range of subject matters including, mountains, glaciers, macro and nature photography and the night sky & astrophotography. Mt Cook has world renowned clear skies with no light pollution, offering the chance to photograph the Milky Way above the Southern Alps. The workshop starts and finishes at Mt Cook Village, but we can also provide return transport from Queenstown.

Day 1:
We will meet at Mt Cook at lunch. After assembling at Mt Cook Village, our home for the next three nights, we will run through an introductory program for the finer points of working in manual mode and advanced settings for landscape photography, before heading out for an evening shoot in the Tasman Valley.

Day 2:
The day begins early with some pre-dawn astrophotography before heading back to the hotel for breakfast. The rest of the day will be taken up alternating between locations in the park and covering a whole range of techniques for advancing your photography.

Day 3:
Today we will venture further afield to explore more of the beautiful Mackenzie Country. Should the weather allow, for those wanting to do some aerial photography there will be an opportunity to do a flight over Mt Cook (on demand and not included in the list price)

Day 4:
After an early morning sunrise shoot in the Tasman Valley, we spend some time reviewing photographs from the previous four days and covering post processing before the workshop finished after lunch today.

Price includes:
- 3 nights accommodation at Hermitage Hotel in a Mt Cook view room shared with one other person from the workshop. If you wish, there is the option to upgrade to your own double hotel room at extra cost
- 3 continental breakfasts at the Hermitage Hotel
- Full tuition by Richard Young and Rob Brown
