Feeling inspired by the stunning images of Wildlife Photographer of the Year? Join us for a photography workshop to sharpen your skills and help you see the world through fresh eyes.

Based at Waikato Museum, this hands-on workshop will explore the nearby natural and built environment and is suitable for beginners or confident photographers who want to try something new.

No fancy camera required, bring your phone if that’s what you use for taking pictures!

The session is led by artist Raymond Sagapolutele, who will demonstrate the storytelling power of photography, along with tips and tricks for getting the best out of your camera or smartphone. Plus you get free entry to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition on the day of the workshop.

Limited spaces available, book online now!

This is a workshop for adults, best suited for audiences with basic photography skills.  



A camera or phone with camera capability is essential. This workshop will take place at the Waikato Museum but may involve using the riverside path and nearby scenery and architecture. Please wear footwear in which you’re comfortable doing some walking.

The session includes a one-hour lunch break.


About Raymond

Raymond Sagapolutele is an Aotearoa-born Sāmoan artist and academic with ties to the villages of Fatuvalu in Savai'i and Saluafata in Upolu, Samoa.

He has exhibited his artwork widely both locally and internationally, as well as being a founding member of the ManaRewa art collective based at Nathan Homestead in Manurewa where he helps to tutor and support the local arts community.

Raymond’s photographic practice focuses on his heritage, and in his hands the camera gains a voice and forms an oratory which connects to the cherished Sāmoan tradition of Fagogo (storytelling).
