Fine Art Photography

Manakau Lodge is also home to a gallery of photographic art, a collection of New Zealand landscape images made by Lodge owner, Neil.

All of these images are available for purchase as beautiful fine art prints, individually made to order.

Using the latest high-resolution inkjet printing technology and long-life pigment inks, together with heavyweight, museum-grade, acid-free fine art etch paper, our prints are delicately finished, vibrant and superbly detailed, with unprecedented standards of quality and archival durability.

Photography Tuition Workshops

During the winter months, when our mountain scenery is at its most spectacular, we offer photography tuition workshops combined with an overnight stay at Manakau Lodge.

Our full day workshops are spread over an afternoon and the following morning, and are designed to offer hands-on guidance and tuition for photographers of all levels of experience. Whether you are a novice, a seasoned enthusiast, or perhaps just getting to grips with your new digital camera, as your tutor and guide, Neil will take you to places off the beaten track, and will help you get the best out of your camera equipment, build on your own creativity, improve your skills, and achieve better results. These are practical, out-in-the-field excursions for individuals or small groups.

Dates for photo workshop stays can be found on our Rates and Packages page.

MWNeil is also the New Zealand professional guide for US-based Muench Workshops, one of America’s very best providers of photography tuition. We offer an amazing all-inclusive photography workshop experience in a number of stunning locations on the South Island, over 10-14 days around the end of April/early May.
