About Capture New Zealand Photo Expeditions
Since 2005 we have been providing spectacular New Zealand photography workshop and tour programs. Our photo workshops are led by Phillip Bartlett, a New Zealand-born professional landscape photographer with almost 20 years experience. Phillip’s patient, down-to-earth style will inspire and equip you to push the boundaries with your photography to a new dynamic level. Every workshop is open to photographers of all skill levels, as well as non-photographers who regularly join their photographer partner or friend. The inclusive and fun atmosphere we enjoy together makes the journey as memorable as the photography we experience. You are most welcome to be a part of any of our workshops and we look forward to photographing with you very soon.

The South Island of New Zealand contains some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world and being led around by someone so experienced in the terrain as well as reading the weather (I swear that Phillip works as a part-time meteorologist) gives you the best possible opportunities to capture amazing photographs. Phillip tailors his teaching style to your abilities and he has helped me a lot to refine the way I compose an image on the field. Being able to discuss and share ideas with a professional photographer throughout the workshop was invaluable - I now have a better sense of the overall aesthetic and style that I would like to put across in my work. This is definitely not one of those run-of-the-mill photo tours - expect to be immersed in surroundings far-flung from the beaten track, devoid of large coach buses filled with tourists. There was a day that we spent in a valley around Te-Anau and except for the passing farmers, we had the entire place to ourselves to experience and photograph. However, going off the beaten track doesn't mean it has to be uncomfortable. Phillip has curated a list of accommodations that are comfortable, clean and spacious. There is always good food along the way and he knows where the best coffee and hot chocolate can be had. This was my first trip with Phillip and certainly not my last. I hope to join him for other adventures in the near future.

The best international trips that we have taken. Phillip led us on two weeks of some of the great locations in Indonesia. Nights sailing on the Sunda Sea, sunrise at Padar, visits with the Komodo Dragons and the Orangutans of Kalimantan. This was our second trip with Phillip and he exceeded our expectations both times.

I just returned from a wonderful photo trip to Indonesia with professional photographer Phillip Bartlett. This was my second time in Indonesia and third overall trip with Phillip Bartlett. Like every time before, everything was planned with meticulous detail. The accommodations was equivalent to four and five star hotels in the States and the food was exceptionally delicious. After arriving in Bali, we flew to the Komodo National Park where we sailed around these beautiful islands in a luxury sailboat with private state rooms, each having their own private shower facilities. Phillip made sure we had professional guides accompany us at each site, to get the best possible photos of the amazing Komodo Dragons. We then flew to Borneo, where we boarded these luxurious Riverboats into the narrow rivers of the Tanjung Puting National Park, where we photographed the amazing Orangutans and Proboscis monkeys from the decks of our boats while sipping delicious fresh coconut water. We ended our trip in the beautiful city of Malang, where we toured the unique bird market and photographed the most amazing sunrise image of Mount Bromo. As always. Phillip worked hard behind the scenes to make sure all the domestic airline trips, hotel accommodations and transportation services ran smoothly. Again this was my third trip with Phillip and definitely won't be my last.

In April I joined several other keen photographers and toured the South Island with Phillip Bartlett and Cam his very able right hand man. The trip was very comfortable, 4 people travelling in each four wheel drive vehicle. We visited some very special locations and Phillip was a very attentive coach sharing his time with each of us as we required. I have done this trip before with others and I can say the trip with Phillip was extraordinary and delivered excellent value regardless of skill level. I agree with all the comments made by jaysilvey.
