| p.1 #1 · [Q] New Zealand workshops in Dec-2012? |
I am suddenly finding myself with some free time in late November and early December and was thinking of doing a photo workshop. All US based ones that are any good will already be filled up (speak up if you know otherwise), so I was thinking of going south... way south, to New Zealand. However, I can't seem to find anything organized by real photographers, other than the PODAS event:
That has a couple of downsides.
(1) Steep price - I neither need nor want 5-star accommodations. In fact I would rather hike 20 miles to camp some place out of the way rather than sleep at a 5-star Hilton with a bunch of over-weight middle aged men who have all the latest gear but little desire to walk more than 0.5 miles.
(2) Phase One centered. I drive a Nikon and the last thing I want is to go to a new location with new gear. Thanks but no thanks.
If I can't find something pre-organized I am tempted to try to hire a guide to take me some place wild. Can anyone recommend an outfilt that they have had good luck with? My window is rather narrow, either November or December.
Thank you for the recommendations and tips.
