I was lucky enough to be one of the participants on the first New Zealand Photography Workshop’s Deer Retreat Workshop in February 2021. This was a great opportunity to refresh and increase my wildlife photography skills during these COVID times.The workshop included a combination of photographing deer from hides and from the roads on the farm as well as a little landscape photography. The hospitality and accommodation on site was also great. Even before I left I knew I wanted to repeat the workshop - I have now booked to return on the second workshop in late May 2021!

Richard and Ken were great instructors. They both helped set up my camera properly and were there to guide me and the other students through the process of taking great photographs. Everything from the technical through to composition was covered. Their scouting of locations meant that I was able to maximize great locations for photography in a relatively short window of time. Great fun, great camaraderie, great photographs. Would I do another NZPW tour? One word: Yes.

I was fortunate to be part of this workshop. It was an experience of its own kind. Apart from learning Photography, I could see the inner and hidden beauty in the interior of NZ, which no one could have seen as a tourist; because as normal tourists we tend to stay on periphery by being in bigger cities/towns. Richard: You are not only a great teacher, you are very humane. How can we forget you making us enjoy hot chocolates early mornings and later evenings when temperatures and wind makes fingers go numb and then comes warm touch of Hot Chocolate. You were always so helpful in training as well ensuring we all are enjoying the whole workshop. Ken too was extremely helpful. I am going to take the new learning, Photography as a hobby much more seriously than I was thinking before this workshop. Few of my favorite pictures that I clicked are given below.

Richard Young and Mark Gee provided an outstanding astro photography workshop. It was well organised and flexible accounting well for weather and light conditions so that we maximised our photographic opportunities. They took us to iconic sites in the Twizel, Mt Cook areas of the NZ South Island. The tutorials were content rich, expertly delivered and exceeded our expectations. The workshop price represented genuine value for money. We are already checking our schedule to book for another workshop.

Fantastic experience with a fun group of folks. Good ratio of 8 participants : 2 tutors. Richard and Mark were kind, enthusiastic and tailored their teaching to our skill levels in the field. Well planned itinerary, comfy hotel in Twizel, and simply amazing locations. Good mix of landscape and astro, conference room teaching and shooting time. Appreciated the loan of ND filters and learning how to use them. Would highly recommend!
