Join Craig Mckenzie for a weekend bird photography workshop in Okarito – New Zealand’s only nesting site of the iconic white heron, kōtuku.

Craig is an acclaimed wildlife photographer, having taken nature images for NZ Geographic and other publications, including an image used on a New Zealand Stamp! He loves sharing his passion with fellow photographers, including his extensive knowledge of capturing stunning nature images.

We will commence with an informal sunset shoot on Friday evening. Saturday will see us work through the details you need to capture a great image, and then head out to the sanctuary for a truly spectacular experience with the herons. There will be time to practice new techniques and enjoy an evening (and hopefully sunset!) at Okarito Lagoon. The weekend concludes with an informal review on Sunday morning to reinforce the skills learned and friendships made!

Supported by PSNZ trade partner Nikon, there will be plenty of opportunities to trial their gear over the workshop, including at the heron hide!

All tours will be run on Saturday, however this workshop will commence with an informal gathering on Friday evening in Okarito and there will be additional time on Sunday morning to review the skills and ask any questions that popped up overnight. Transport to/from the Sanctuary is provided, but participants will need to arrange their own accommodation and transport to/from Okarito lagoon.
