Although we have been frequent visitors to the Glenorchy area this trip with Laurence we had the experience through the eyes of a local. As a guide he was inspirational, hugely knowledgable and so gracious and patient in sharing and guiding us to discover, visualise and create beautiful images. And all in one of NZs most stunning landscapes! Highly recommended!

Hi MamoC. Thanks for your great review, it's much appreciated. It was a fun day with both of you and I also enjoyed being able to pass on some of my Lightroom knowledge. I look forward to seeing the images you took on the day. When you are next in Glenorchy please do make contact, it would be good to catch up with you both again. Cheers. Laurence.

Thoroughly enjoyed the mentoring Laurence provided me on the most perfect of days touring around the gorgeous Glenorchy, Paradise, and Dart River areas. Laurence takes the time to gauge the level of knowledge you have, and the equipment you use, before customising the day to suit you as an individual. I was extremely impressed with Laurence - his professionalism, his communication/teaching skills, and his technical and artistic knowledge of photography (not to mention his vast knowledge of the local area). It was a fun-filled, fact-filled day of refining my landscape photography skills, as well as enjoying and getting to know more about such a beautiful region with the most spectacular views. It truly is paradise on Earth. Thank you again, Laurence, for such a memorable day. I absolutely loved every minute of it, and have been enjoying the much-improved results of everything I learnt from you that day. And thank you for all your kindness. You are a true gentleman. Kind regards, Kylie

Kylie, thank you. What a glowing review. One of our selling points is that we “tailor make the tours to suit the individual” and I’m pleased to hear you say that we succeeded for you. Two things I really want to do during my tours are firstly to pass on my knowledge and experience to those interested in learning and secondly make sure that all my clients have the best time. I hope you all enjoyed the rest of your stay in New Zealand, please do let me know when you visit again. I know you will. Cheers. Laurence.

Wow! This experience was fabulous from the start, including the trip to Paradise Ziplines, via spectacular scenery on the way to Glenorchy. A quick intro to Ziplining and away we went. The activity was new to all in our group, but in no time Chris, Irish & Kristy made everyone feel relaxed & amongst friends. We were zipping like pros across water falls, rugged rocky gorges and blue water pools. Stunning scenery, exhilarating experience and adrenaline rush - beyond all expectations! If you are in the Queenstown area, this is one not to miss!

Hi Chris. Great to get your glowing review, but sadly we are not Paradise Ziplines, we are Paradise Pictures. I have already contacted the guys up the road to make them aware of your great review and I’m happy to leave it posted here. Perhaps you’d like to shoot over to their TripAdvisor site and post your review there as well, they deserve it. Glad you enjoyed your trip out to Glenorchy and the Rees Valley, we are based just down the road from Zipline and totally agree with you that we have some stunning scenery around. Perhaps next time you are here you could come out on one of our photo tours instead. Not quite as exhilarating I know, but still good fun. Cheers. Laurence.

It has been a few weeks since our wonderful day in November with Laurence but it now seems so long ago. He responded quickly to email and was very helpful in so many ways. Even before we met him, he asked about our trip to NZ and sent some travel suggestions. I wanted to do this photography tour and my husband joined as a “non-photographer”. We were the only ones on this tour. We had such a wonderful day with Laurence, enjoying his company, learning new things and soaking up the beauty of the area. We truly did not want it to end! And it didn’t, as Laurence sent me follow up emails with photos and lots of terrific information. I highly recommend this tour with Laurence as I believe you will learn new things and love every minute of it.
