Starting and finishing in Queenstown, we'll travel to the Twizel / Tekapo region where we'll base ourselves for the 5 days of this tour.

5 days of professional photography guiding and coaching to spectacular destinations only the locals know about (We won't be going to many of the regular tourist locations but getting into beautiful scenic, quiet locations only the Kiwi locals know about, your images will be unique).

The region we'll cover is the McKenzie District and in late Spring it is definitely a landscape photographers paradise with a riot of colour from the Lupins and other wildflowers. This area offers so many uniquely beautiful photographic opportunities and the variance of landscape styles will have something for everyone !     

This tour very much has an emphasis on "old fashioned" customer service and is about a smaller group with 1 on 1 personalised guiding and tuition for all skill levels to ensure you learn plenty and come away with epic photos.  


" I really like to take the time to have 1 on 1 time with each client and ensure they learn exactly what they wanted from the experience as each person wants to achieve something different from the tour, we don't rush locations and we won't leave a location until all clients are satisfied with their photos, it's very important to me that the clients maximise their learning opportunities and really enjoy all aspects of the tour . " 

After being a frequent visitor to New Zealand for almost 20 years I feel I have a deep connection with New Zealand and this country is now in my soul, I thoroughly enjoy taking clients here and showing them and capturing jaw dropping scenery. 

I have established strong local friendships and have a broad knowledge of the region and its spectacular scenery, i really look forward to showing you around.
