Ian Rolfe has by popular demand, opened up to another destination the South Island of New Zealand. Photography buffs are invited to join Ian for a 12 day New Zealand workshop this fall 23 April-4 May 2014. An acclaimed photographer Ian excels at chasing the light and capturing dramatic landscapes through the lens.

Visit Ian’s favourite spots and share his tricks of the trade in capturing images of the majestic vista of New Zealand’s stunning South Island. Places are filling fast, the tour opened up two weeks ago and there are only 8 spots left on this tour.

Given his first camera at the age of 8 Ian began taking small black & white photos of family & friends & also of the regular annual holidays he went on with his family. A love of landscapes developed & flourished during a school camping safari to outback Queensland while attending secondary college.

Ian has travelled extensively in Australia, Great Britain, South-East Asia, North America, & much of the Pacific regions, where he has built up an extensive photo library used in travel brochure work & his photographic writing.

Ian is a well-known travel & landscape photographer whose column started to appear in the Photo-master magazine over 10 years ago. Since then his work has been published in numerous books, Photography magazines & travel brochures and his Panoramic Photos are currently used in a European Image Library. Ian conducts up to 12 Photographic workshops each year both locally and overseas and also gives lectures and presentations at Club level to help members who are passionate about developing further in their photographic knowledge and skills.

Many of Ian’s Photographs have won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, Best of Show, Merits and High commendations and has had over 2500 acceptances at Photographic Exhibitions both here in Australia and at International Level.

Norfolk Island Travel Centre

Norfolk Island Travel Centre is an award winning travel agency that specialises in quality, personalised travel. Norfolk has a unique beauty of its own, with its renowned tall majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves. But Norfolk Island is far more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is paradise with a past. What was once a convicts’ nightmare is now the tranquil home of the descendants from the Mutiny on the Bounty, who have their own unique culture and their own language. There is much to see and do on Norfolk Island: fascinating historic tours, see Kingston which is a World Heritage Listed area,outdoor re-enactments of the Bounty Mutiny (with parts played by actual descendants of Fletcher Christian), ‘Light and Sound’ shows, eco-tours, glass bottom boat coral reef trips, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, dining out in the numerous fine restaurants, bush walking, scenic horse riding, golf on what has been called the world’s most beautiful golf course, bowls, tennis, and squash. Take advantage of Norfolk's tax-free shopping or perhaps simply take some time out to relax and enjoy Norfolk's peaceful existence.
