Clive Copeman, Dunedin photographer/guide has been announced as the second ‘celebrity’ walker on the Hump Ridge Track themed Celebrity Walk Week in March 2011.

Clive first realized the Hump Ridge’s photographic potential as part of a Jules Lund tour at the start of this year and has come back to help snap happy walkers make the most of their surroundings on the celebrity walk.

Celebrity Walk Week is an annual fundraiser for the Tuatapere Hump Track Trust - the charitable trust that manages the track. All money raised goes into track and facility upgrading.

“The Hump Ridge Track offers some of the best visual variety of any of New Zealand's walks with coastal, forest, heritage and alpine scenery to enjoy.” said Clive. “It's a feast for photographers.”

Celebrity Walk Week participants can have their packs flown between lodges, a hot shower when they arrive and a gourmet meal cooked for them each night.

The walk is priced at only $995pp (the best value, three-day guided walk in Fiordland) and places are expected to fill up fast as additional celebrity guides are announced.
