Description

Canon Adventure and Storytelling Workshop

This July join Joe, Benny and Joel, in collaboration with Canon NZ, on an overnight photography workshop. The workshop will cover composition, working with light, post processing and storytelling techniques. We will be taking three of Grit Rentals (https://www.gritrentals.com) old school 4x4s into the Southern Alps. The workshop will take place in the exclusive Lake Heron Station, which is hidden in an alpine valley above the Rakaia River, making it the perfect location. We will be staying the night as a team in a large private hut in the mountains.
