Our Nature Macro Workshops are always popular, and we will be on the hunt for insects on this trail around the  city. Wellington has such bug diversity, and its just a matter of knowing where to look, although as you will know there is no guarantees with bug community as to where they will be and at what times!  We will also be visiting The Wellington Botanic Gardens, so at the very least you will know you will see something with wings, multiple legs, or antennae!

This workshop a half day long, so be prepared for a whole heap of hands and knees action! The investment is $150.00 for great education, entertainment and fun.


This Photography Workshop has strictly limited numbers and will be a walk around our CBD, taking in the Waterfront, CBD, Sunday Markets. We will also be concentrating on Wellington's Street Art and Graffiti.   It is a 9.00am start, with an Optional Dawn Component ( For those will to get up early! Oh and weather permitting.)  and there will be a wet weather programme should that be necessary.  The investment will be $150.00 for a workshop which will complete around mid day at our Civic Centre.


This is a half day long event that involves the photography of people in a portrait, environmental, or documentary sense. There will be an emphasis on lighting, and capturing the decisive moment. There will be both location and studio aspects to this workshop, where you will get the best from Simon Woolf's extensive knowledge on capturing people in a photographic sense.

Be prepared for the serious, the fun and the spontaneous.
