New Photography Workshops and Experiences will be placed on this page soon!

Dawn to Dusk  or Nature Plus Workshops. They will be happening in Late August September, although we may schedule something special at short notice. So keep an eye on our website or Facebook for details.

Our Bay of Many Coves Photography Retreats.

Our Natural Environment Experience is to be held Friday 31st August - Sunday 2nd September. This workshop experience is predominately Wildlife, Nature, Marine, Landscape and Conservation orientated, where we try and incorporate photography of the beautiful bird life, marine mammals, and the flora and fauna that abounds in the Bay of Many Coves area. Hot off the press!  We will be hosting Peter Eastway,  one the worlds great environmental landscape photographers at this our Natural Environment Photography Retreat. Peter is the total package as a photographer and person.  Peter and Simon have educated and enthused photographers on a number of occasions. You will not be disappointed, 

This experience incorporates unsurpassed  Bay of Many Coves Resort 5 star hospitality and cuisine, including one of New Zealand's top five degustation meals! This part of the weekend is a highlight where you get to photograph the most creative of dishes, and then get to savour the taste sensation that is delivered to your table! The atmosphere and ambiance of the occasion is something to behold.

To register your intent to participate in what is definitely a very unique and special Photography/ Cuisine experience please contact Graham at The Bay of Many Coves Resort on +64 3 5799 771  https://www.bayofmanycoves.co.nz/events/photography-masterclass/


These  workshops are tremendously popular, and it is important to book early, or you may miss out. Based on our last "Retreat"  and was our best experience yet, the bookings will again be strong for 2018.

September  28 - 30  are the dates for The Photographic Society of New Zealand's Central Regional Convention. This year the convention is being held in Whanganui. It is a great programme, and our very own Simon Woolf will be the MC for the event. Just as a footnote, Whanganui are legendary for hosting and providing just the best photography conventions!
