We offer a 13-week nature photography program that connects you with Nature, enhances your hauora/wellbeing, builds your skills and enables you to be steward or kaitiakitanga of the environment through your creativity. You will get the chance to have your work published in books and our digital magazine, Compassionate Nature, and create a compelling portfolio that showcases your talents. Compelling photography can change community attitudes, behaviour, and even policies.

IMAgEN8 will provide a digital SLR camera for this program, run workshops, organise educational sessions to teach you the artistic and technical aspects, give assignments, and provide photography mentors.


Apply to see the full program schedule that you will commit to. Deadline for applications is Aug 19 2022, and the first workshop will be on Sept 3. We will accept a maximum of 5 students, and the cost to participate is $200 per student.
