Two Day Retreat

2 Day  Retreat – $800pp
($300 non-photographic partner)

Includes two nights accommodation – one double room(garden view) and a second room(sea view) with two singles available.

Muriwai is such a wonderful place that it really is worth staying out here and experiencing the evening and morning light. It is also a wonderful opportunity to take the time to visit our famous, and incredibly close gannet colony (we can even hear the gannets from our deck!) Our home has magnificent views down the 53km Muriwai beach. You have your own private bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities. Two fully cooked breakfasts and two lunches are provided.

Indulge in two full days of photographic activities and workshops tailored to suit your creative needs from the options below.

Times are worked around the changing light and tides.

  • ‘In the Pink!,’ a dawn beach shoot.

  • Exploring the forest – a medium level ramble through Native New Zealand forest enjoying views and Nikau Palm glades.

  • Creativity with ICM – how to lose your inhibitions, break all the rules and fall in love with your camera!

  • Creativity with Photoshop – How to follow through and give your images that extra ‘something special.’

  • Taking time to shoot the ‘Little Lovelies’ life presents us – slowing our minds down and finding the magic around us!

  • ‘Nurturing the Flame’ – how to keep creativity alive (evening session).

  • ‘Why we need to do competitions and how to get the best out of them’ (evening session).

  • Gannet and tern photography – Come and meet my family perched on the rocks!

  • Doggy photography – My dog Toblerone loves to provide you with her modelling services – she is happy to go at full speed down the beach to practice your action photography or patiently wait while you take her portrait!

  • 4x4 beach trip – Get close to nature and her wild side with a trip at low tide.

  • Te Henga walk – Experience the crashing waves and magnificent views from New Zealand’s cliff top walk. A reasonable level of fitness required. (Return shuttle $75)
