Dunedin and its surroundings offer excellent opportunities for nature photography. I take you to my favorite sites to learn the basics of nature photography and how to use your camera. All in relaxed learning atmosphere!
Do you want to show your landscape photos to your friends without boring them? Are you reluctant to switch your camera from “automatic” to the more creative “manual” mode? Yoann, a Kiwi/French professional tour guide and photographer who has lived in Dunedin for over 18 years, will guide you on a day of discovery of nature photography around Dunedin. This workshop is ideal if you are just starting out in photography, if you are newly equipped or if you want to consolidate your experience with a professional photographer, in a relaxed atmosphere in Dunedin and on the beautiful Otago Peninsula.
