Spaces are limited and this is an exclusive workshop, be quick.

The images that you have seen are a combination of several trips to the forest.
Our intention is to take you to all these locations, there are many river scenes to be taken on the way.

The location for this workshop is deep into the Kaimai Mamaku Forest, based at the Ngatuhoa Lodge.
This is an exclusive location that we are able to use with the permission of the Ngatuhoa Trust.
