Middlehurst Art Photography Experience 5-11 Aug 2024

Join Peter Eastway & Tony Hewitt on their annual visit to Middlehurst Station!
$ 995.00

One spot has just become available for this trip (was previously booked out!).  There are also places available for the second trip on14 to 20 August which is identical to this one (no need to use a Phase One camera!) 

Middlehurst is a high end photography retreat and experience for photographers who already understand how to use their camera and are ready to learn about the philosophy and aesthetics of art photography and image-making.

You don’t have to be an expert with your camera, but you should be ready to challenge yourself when it comes to creativity!

Peter Eastway and Tony Hewitt visited Middlehurst Station in June 2015 and fell in love with the location. It feels like ‘Middle Earth’ and you expect to see trolls and hobbits around every corner. So enamoured are they with Middlehurst that it has now become an annual pilgrimage.

In 2018, Peter won the AIPP Photography Book Award for his book ‘Middlehurst: Middle-Earth’, which was shot during these workshops. The judges had also fallen in love with the landscape! And you will too! And you'll also be part of the book!

The Art Photography Experience is limited to 8 participants.

It is likely to be cold outside and the weather is variable, exactly what we want.

However, the lodgings are wonderful! Built in 2019, the new ’Quarters’ feature private rooms and modern shared bathrooms. And best of all, we have our own chef - the food is nothing short of stellar!

Now, lock the ten of us away on an amazing sheep station in the remote New Zealand high country. When you stand on the top of a hill and look out as far as you can towards distant, snow-capped peaks, it’s breathtaking to realise this is all one station.

And it’s private land, so you can’t just go here by yourself. And even if you could, access to many of the locations is only by sturdy 4WDs driven by expert station hands who know the tracks, or experienced helicopter pilots who fly the area.

So, location is five stars. Food six stars! Lodgings are incredibly comfortable and now the scene is set for you to not only have a great experience, but do something with it as well: take your photography to the next level.

Don’t delay - places book up quickly.
