From the late 1800s settlers to New Zealand have been commenting on the unique quality of the light. The lack of light pollution makes for perfect nighttime photography on one of the many cloudless nights.

We are obviously weather dependent but we can predict when the phases of the moon will be and when the best time to run these course will be. We can still get great shots even when there is some cloud. Wintertime is a particularly good time for stellar photography due to the longer nights and even clearer light conditions.

Tripods and timers are a must for this one. We have spare equipment available if required. You will also need some warm clothes for those cloudless nights and a supply of good coffee (we can help with that). Clear nights can mean cold air even in summer!

"Thanks for the great time we had on the photography course. The things I learned have made a real difference to the results I am now getting with my camera. It's given me more confidence and belief that I can go out, find and compose the images I want, capture them and get the best out of them in post processing. I'm enjoying my photography more as a result. So thanks for making me a better photographer and I'm looking forward to another course to take me to the next level!"
