Map and Directions

Held during the first week of the July School Holidays, NSPS is open to Scouts, Venturers, Guides and Rangers interested in digital photography and is limited to 28 students. (age range: 12.5-18)

For a whole week our students are immersed in the fun world of photography.

They will learn portraiture, lighting, still life and lots more to help them become better photographers. NSPS is the only photography school of this type in New Zealand for young people. Students will also visit and talk to other professional photographers in Wellington.

The school fee includes accommodation, food, materials, access to camera & computer equipment. You are responsible for booking your own travel to Wellington.

Students usually bring their own cameras, but some NSPS cameras are available for student use. 

We ask students to bring a 16GB USB thumb drive or portable hard drive to store their photographs.

If students are able to bring a laptop for simple image editing and file organisation this is worthwhile, but the school has computers which can be used where this isn't possible. 

Please have the following information ready to use when filling in this online registration form:
  • a brief paragraph explaining why you want to attend NSPS 
  • a list of any existing medical conditions & medications you need to bring
  • your doctor's or medical centre address and phone number 
  • date of your last tetanus injection
  • date of your last dentist visit 
  • your digital camera make & model (eg Canon EOS 1200D) if you can bring one.

When you make your travel arrangements, you need to arrive at Brookfield by 7.30pm on Saturday. Please ensure you have eaten dinner before you reach camp. The school starts at 8.00pm. If you are booking flights/train/bus into Wellington please aim to arrive in Wellington on Saturday 6 July, between 3.00pm - 6.00pm. 

If want to ride on a group group shuttle TO or FROM the airport or bus/railway station, please choose these in the merchandise section of the registration process. The cost is $15 per person each way. 

Some of our NSPS leaders will be at Brookfield on Saturday from approximately 3.00pm. 

 Some of our NSPS leaders will be at Wellington Airport to meet arriving students, between 4.00 and 6.00pm.


Please book flights/bus/train departing from 2.50pm or later on Sunday 14 July. This will allow you enough time to travel to the airport/railway station and check in. The shuttle travel time from Brookfield to Wellington Airport is approximately 60min. It can make stops on the way at the Wellington Railway/Bus station. 

Please contact us if you need to arrange an arrival or departure outside of these times. 

For younger students who are travelling as an unaccompanied minor alone, please contact us to discuss your options before booking flights. 

Parents & families who are able to be in Wellington to pick up students, are welcome to attend our closing ceremony at 10.45am on Sunday 14 July, where students are awarded certificates and the Top Student & Top Portfolio Awards are also presented.
