Workshop Highlights and Features

June 19-28, 2018: We’ll start in Queenstown early afternoon on June 19, and wrap up in Queenstown no later than mid-morning on June 28. (2 Spots Available).

June 30-July 9, 2018: We’ll start in Queenstown early afternoon on June 30, and wrap up in Queenstown no later than mid-morning on July 9. (2 Spaces Available).

Transportation is included throughout the workshop. We'll be using a driver and very comfortable 16-passenger Mercedes van with ample storage.  Airfare and transportation to and from the airport are not included, but an airport shuttle is provided by our Queenstown hotel.

Private lodging (each participant has their own room) is provided for each of the workshop's nine nights: our first and last night in Queenstown, one night in Wanaka, and two nights in Te Anau, Fox Glacier, and Twizel. These are very comfortable hotels that we're sure you'll enjoy. No one will be assigned a roommate, but if you wish to share a room with a participating friend or loved one, a discount will apply.

Breakfast and lunch are provided each day. Our early sunsets will allow you to explore dinner options in that night’s town, either on your own or with other members of the group.

We have two very special tours planned: An all-day cruise on the must-be-seen-to-be-believed Doubtful Sound through Fiordland National Park; and a helicopter ride above and onto Fox Glacier, where we’ll land and be guided to spectacular glacier views beneath Mount Cook and Mount Tasman.

Night photography is planned for at least one night, conditions permitting.

Price: $9700.00 - Includes: 9 nights private lodging, all breakfasts and lunches, workshop transportation, all-day Doubtful Sound boat tour through Fiordlands National Park,  4-hour helicopter tour with photography on Fox Glacier.
