“I couldn’t ask for any more than what got from the NZ workshop- amazing scenery, superb organisation, delightful fellow travellers and inspirational teachers Jim and Josh.”- Walter
“My favorite workshop experience was sunrise at Moke Lake. In all my travels, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such an intense, varied sunrise combined with perfect photographic conditions and a beautiful location. The sky, which started out with just a hint of color, exploded into pinks and purples followed by deep orange (my favorite color). That glorious color, the mist traveling across the horizon plus the glass-like water made for beautiful refections. I made a series of four photographs that showed the progression from the pre-sunrise tease of colorful light, through the vibrant phase, ending with blue skies and a glow on the mountaintops. It was definitely worth dragging my jet-lagged body out of bed for that experience.“ – Zvia
“My favourite experience… that’s going to be tough… I had so many amazing experiences on this tour… every day brought a few more! However… my MOST favourite experience has to be the helicopter flight from Te Anau to Milford. That currently ranks very highly on my “top ten experiences EVER” list!! Although the flight was much too short for my liking… flying between the massive peaks of the Fiordland National Park was an absolutely unforgettable experience… I loved every single second of it!!!
Thanks again Josh and Jim… for organising this tour so brilliantly!!“ – Paul
“A writer I am not, so I will have to work on my favorite experience from the trip. It was all so amazing, it’s hard to pick just one thing. “ – Janis
“I knew New Zealand’s South Island would be unique as my plane from Auckland descended over Lake Wakatipu toward Queenstown. Wisps of clouds clung to the peaks of rugged mountains like none I’d ever seen. The explosions of sunrise color at Moke Lake and Tautuku Bay were beyond description, not to mention the rainbow! Then there were the waterfalls surrounded by mossy green forests, and the ever-changing moods of Milford Sound. The whole itinerary was well-planned and Josh, Jim, and our Kiwi driver Reg worked tirelessly to keep the whole thing running smoothly. I certainly hope to get back to New Zealand one of these days!” – John
“I participated in multiple scenic workshops with various professionals…this was my first experience with Josh and Jim…wow…logistics were perfectly executed, personalized instruction commensurate to my knowledge level and safety was always a priority. I am unsure how Josh and Jim arranged perfect weather conditions with sunrises that were glorious, rainbows, dramatic clouds, mist, mirror-like water and sunsets that were dramatic…this didn’t happen just on one day – this occurred consistently throughout the trip. Josh and Jim kept us supplied with Tim Tams and other goodies..I would recommend not only New Zealand for wondrous scenic photography but Sea to Summit Workshop as the best way to photograph the South Island…
