Chatham Islands photography tour

The photo tour to the Chatham Islands is back on.  This was put on hold until there was some clarity around Covid-19.
With regional travel and the restart of the tourism industry, we are able to keep the original dates 11 – 18 September and all the other arrangements in place.
There are 15 places left on the tour.  Lindsay Keats will be the lead tutor with Fiona Foxall and Christine Jacobson assisting him.
