For the last five weeks I’ve been blogging here about my recent trip to New Zealand, and the amazing photographs that came out of it. This was due to attending a workshop run by mentor and friend Cam Attree, which is among the best photographic experiences I’ve ever had. I thought it worthwhile to do a final post, wrapping up the entire trip and showcasing my favourite images.
New Zealand gave us an absolutely incredible landscape to work upon, and with huge variances of terrain between each location. Combining this amazing scenery with two world class models meant the shots on all three days were fantastic.
So with that in mind, here are my favourites from the trip. I tried to limit myself to 10, but just could not do it, and ended up with 13. The previous posts showed off my favourites from each location, and this yielded around 150 images, narrowing this down to 13 was pretty difficult.
Shots here were from all of the cameras I brought with me to New Zealand, being a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, a Fuji X100s modified for Infrared work, and a Hasselblad 500 CM with various film types (Ilford HP5+, Fuji Pro 400H and Kodak Aerochrome in this gallery)

For any photographers questioning whether or not a trip like this is worthwhile, consider how much it costs to hire a model for a day, then imagine having access to two models (more rumoured on the next trip!) and locations such as these. Just this on it’s on would be well worth the cost, however when you throw in Cam’s amazing expertise, insights and tuition the workshop cost can be seen less an expense and more as an investment.
I can safely say my skills improved, and I have a collection of photographs which I will no doubt treasure for years to come. Even better than all of this? I was left with an experience which would be hard to duplicate, and I can’t wait to do it again. If you are a photographer, I cannot recommend a workshop with Cam highly enough. Get out there!
