Good Photo Spots (GPS)
PSNZ members will have received an email (on 29 Mar 22) about this nationwide project to identify and share local Good Photo Spots with visiting photographers. Remember this is not about the secret and special spots! It is about the places that the locals know about but that you might not notice if you were visiting.
GPSs will be collated and listed in the members only area of the PSNZ website so you can have some ideas of where to go the next time you’re out of town.
Email your GPS and some details (location; best time, weather, tides; relevant links; risks; GPS co-ordinates) about your spot to GPS project.
