Lightwave weekend workshops are a great experience
and value for money, don't take our word for it, this is what our photographers have to say.


I just got home after an AMAZING weekend with Ken and Karen Wright of Lightwave Photography where I was fortunate enough to have a one on one tutoring workshop. I learned so much, we visited some amazing locations. I was fortunate enough spend the weekend with two LOVELY and generous hosts.


Photographers, if you want to try landscape or seascape or you just want to improve your photography in general then I thoroughly recommend that you book yourself on one of Ken's workshops. He is generous to a fault with his time and knowledge and I absolutely promise you will have an awesome time.


He knows all the best spots and will make sure that you are the centre of attention and that you come home with some killer images. Iíve been on a whole bunch of workshops in New Zealand, Kenís is absolutely excellent value for money, very inspirational and truly motivational. I am now resting my tired bones and processing some images. Ken and Karen you guys ROCK!




I first met Ken at his gallery in Papamoa. I was very impressed with his seascape and waterfall photography prints which prompted me to book in private tuition. We organised a trip to one of my favourite spots in the Eastern Bay, Otarawaiere Bay.


Ken taught me the basics of long exposure photography and a few tricks of the trade. Ken also gave me ideas and inspiration on how to compose my shots better. The end of the day was some basic pointers on Photoshop and Lightroom. I would highly recommend Kenís workshops to everyone starting out in all types of photography, he is a leader in his field.

Had an amazing weekend away with Ken in November (Seascapes and Waterfalls, Dawn to Dusk) as we explored some of Kenís chosen spots across the stunning BOP.  The waterfalls were in full flow after the heavy rain during the previous few days which added to the experience.  Ken knew the right locations for us to obtain the killer shot that we were all after.  He was full of helpful tips which certainly helped me improve the images that I was shooting.  He was generous with his time and back in his studio he showed us his workflow for transforming a series of shots into a stunning final image.
Ken and his wife Karen are extremely hospitable hosts and I would thoroughly recommend one of Kenís workshops to anyone that wants to improve their photography.

I went on Ken's Seascapes and Waterfall's workshop in November 16. The environment Ken created for us made this one of the best workshops I have attended. I found ken gave me confidence, style and technique in a very supportive and sincere manner. As well, we visited some amazing sights and sites. I would not hesitate in recommending Ken to any body wanting to develop their photography. Take Ken's course, and you also have a friend for life.
