Night Sky Photography Tour
This fun tour operates from April to Sept and is for people of all skill levels who’d like to discover more about dark sky photography. Depending on the season, time and conditions there will be a variety of objects to shoot; moon, planets, stars, clusters, galaxies and satellites. There are meteors often and on rare occasions the Aurora Australis will flash in green and purple hues. We start with a short brief on conditions and equipment settings. We'll drive to up to three shooting locations in the Wanaka area. I'll brief you on the basics and we will use apps to see what is in the night sky and choose our subjects. You will learn how to focus on distant stars and how to take a test shot. Once you have your subject, framing and focus the shoot begins. Next we look at exposure times and sensitivity (ISO) settings and will take a variety of shots to see which combination of settings is optimal. You will be able to take a series of single shots and learn about how to take star trail images over long exposure times. You will shoot from a variety of aspects using the stunning Wanaka scenery as a backdrop. You will learn skills you can use when you return to your home skies. Any shots you have taken with my equipment will be sent via download link after the tour. Please note that the tour does require clear skies.
Māori Welcome Experience
See the Central Otago land first travelled by the Māori people and learn about the customs and traditions that still thrive with a whakataū/welcome. We'll visit an area where the first non-Māori people—European settlers guided by the elders of Tuturau—visited in 1853. You'll connect to Māori culture as you experience the Wero laid down by a Māori warrior and learn the traditional Hongi greeting—where you press your nose and forehead together with another person—and why it is done. I'll teach you the local Haka, a Māori dance specific to the region of Central Otago, and explain what each action means. The Whakataū will take place even in light rain as the Maori of the 1700’s did not have access to rain jackets and neither shall I. Experience the authenticity and originality as it should be. PS I can provide umbrellas. There are 2 different meeting points for this experience and you will be advised of the meeting point the day before your Māori Welcome date is scheduled. Both locations are relatively close together. Other things to note If you can't see suitable availability, send me a message and I'll see what I can do to host you.

Farm Animal Experience near Oamaru
Visit our 300 acre bull beef farm, learn a little about what and how we farm and then meet, feed and pet our collection of cute farm animals. The tour begins at the family house where we will get you into a pair of gumboots (don't forget to bring a pair of socks). There is no set order as to how the tour goes, it all depends on where the animals are located at that time and also what is happening on the farm. We will discuss the process of rearing bulls from calves and then fattening for market. The majority of the tour is spent meeting our farm pets and feeding them so if you love animals this is your chance to get close and personal. We have 4 alpaca, pet sheep, Eponine the Kune Kune pig, a large flock of chickens and ducks. Usually we are accompanied by some of the farm dogs. From October - February the chickens and ducks are breeding so sometimes you will get to see fluffy babies. From August -October we are rearing calves so bottle feeding a calf is possible. Bottle feeding lambs is also available August - October. May-August is when our bulls are grazing on winter feed, which is quite interesting. Farming in New Zealand is different from a lot of other countries as our animals are outdoors and grass-fed for the majority of the year.
