Ce vei face

This fun tour is for people of all skill levels who’d like to discover more about dark sky photography. Depending on the season, time and conditions there will be a variety of objects to shoot; moon, planets, stars, clusters, galaxies and satellites. There are meteor showers often and on rare occasions the Aurora Australis will flash in green and purple hues across the sky. I will pick you up and we’ll start with a short brief on conditions and equipment settings. We will drive to up to three shooting locations in the Wanaka area. I'll brief you on the basics and we will use apps to see what is in the night sky and start by choosing our subjects. You will learn how to focus on distant stars and how to take a test shot. Once you are happy with your subject, framing and focus the shoot begins. Next we look at exposure times and sensitivity (ISO) settings and will take a variety of shots to see which combination of settings is optimal. You will be able to take a series of single shots and learn about how to take star trail images over very long exposure times. You will shoot from a variety of aspects using the stunning Wanaka scenery as a backdrop. You will learn skills you can use in astrophotography when you return to your home skies. Any shots you have taken with my equipment will be sent via download link after the tour. Please note that the tour does require clear skies.

I lived in the UK and Australia and left the corporate world to live in one of the most beautiful places on the globe. I am a professional landscape photographer but as I lived in major cities for most of my life I rarely had the opportunity to explore the amazing phenomena in the night sky. Here in Central Otago there is minimal light pollution , generally clear weather and big expanse of night sky to observe and photograph; a rare combination. No surprise that astrophotography has become a passion for me and one I enjoy sharing with visitors to our beautiful region. Regardless of skill level with a camera this tour allows me to create a unique and memorable learning experience for you. I am also a fully licensed and insured transport operator and passenger service driver.

Unde vei fi

I will pick you up from your accommodation in the Wanaka area. We drive to the southern shore of the Lake which provides views of the town framed by the vastness of the night sky. We will also photograph the iconic tree. After this we stop on the northern shore of the lake to shoot against the backdrop of the Matukituki Valley. Our last location is on the north west peninsula of Wanaka. We then return to your accommodation.

Greg is knowledgeable and passionate, and gave us a very interactive learning experience. On top of operating a camera, he shared his techniques for composition and how to make the most of the scene to capture a creative image. Thanks so much for being such a thoughtful and inspiring host, and for the wonderful evening :)

The evening with Greg was really informative and the sky around Wanaka was amazing and we were even able to see the southern Aurora. Greg, thanks again very much.

He was great at communicating with us beforehand, and has an engaging manner that made it easy to learn from him. He was well-prepared and flexible, shaping the experience to our needs and abilities. This was a fantastic night out with a knowledgeable and very capable photographer.

This time with Greg turned out to be the highlight of our time in Southland ... such a great investment of an evening & at a really reasonable cost. I've tried some night photography before, based on some online blogs, but going through it in a personalised way was Sooo much more effective and we enjoyed some pretty good results, for beginners. And being a novice, my hesitation or shyness at looking foolish was not at all realised ... helpful, encouraging, practical, and a great springboard for us to continue experimenting ourselves. I was impressed by Greg's preparation & organisation, checking well ahead of the event which cameras and lenses we had, and the prior suggestions of useful apps, provision of common settings for specific objectives, etc. was all really helpful. My wife & are are so pleased we spent this time with Greg even though the idea was initially a bit outside of our kiwi (do-it-yourself-until you get it right, eventually) comfort zone.
