Aiste was incredibly helpful when I first reached out and described what I was looking for, and asked what she thought would be the most suitable package. I ended up purchasing a full day photography tour for my brother and partner, both people who knew their way around a camera and enjoyed photography as a side hobby. To begin, choosing to gift someone an experience as special and thorough as this is the best decision you can make. To learn lifelong skills in great company whilst visiting many of New Zealand’s most beautiful spots (both tourist places and not!) is invaluable. Aiste immediately gathered information from me regarding their level of experience, and I left it up to her to plan destinations. They both came back beaming and ecstatic for days following. They took lifelong skills from it (despite thinking they knew a pretty decent amount before going in!), Aiste adapted to this and provided a high level of expertise. She not only showed them great photo spots, but taught them about framing photos, lighting, and editing, all with step by step examples and letting them try their own.
Finally, I must also mention how Aiste so kindly extended the time of their tour and was flexible regarding weather and its impact. She was under no obligation to do this and it did not go unnoticed.
What an amazing experience, and a gift that definitely keeps on giving. I could not recommend Aiste more. Thank you Aiste!
