See NZ Backcountry, and experience amazing photographic opportunities
Feb 2020
We booked a photo tour of areas that most people wouldn’t go, to capture unique images. We were highly delighted with not only the tour locations but the personalised and engaging explanations of the flora, fauna, local stories and histories en route. Martin, our driver and guide; was excellent tutoring, driving and advising on images. We went off-road into stunning high country which offered excellent picture opportunities, can’t wait to process. Summer was brilliant, would love to return in winter! Highly recommended and would love to repeat with Martin again if back in New Zealand.

Thanks for your kind comments. I really enjoyed spending the day with you. We really got to see how the weather can add so much to the landscapes in this part of New Zealand. The clouds and light made the high country views even more special. I'm looking forward to catching up with both of you again.

Must do in Queenstown!
Dec 2017 • Solo
I arrived in Queenstown in the morning, and did not want to waste half a day so I booked the half day tour. Turned out to be a great decision! Martin is a phenomenal photographer, and knew the area really well. Learned some cool photography pointers as well! We went to Skippers Canyon which is just an amazing place to see and take photos. The only thing I didn't like about my tour was it was too short!!! If I end up coming back to Queenstown, I will definitely book a full day tour and see the other spots.
