We offer Queenstown photography tours & workshops. We’re currently rebuilding our “NZ Photography Tours” page (www.photographytours.co.nz) – so in the meantime, here’s some basic info on what we offer. Typically my tours are run over the best light of the day – early AM for sunrise and morning light, or mid/late afternoon and into sunset. If it’s near a new moon, it’s a great time to shoot astrophotography – so I can also run night tours to some great spots where our Milky Way is incredibly clear.
1 on 1 Queenstown Photography Tour/Workshop- explore the beautiful areas of Queenstown, with trip options including Skippers Canyon, Glenorchy & Arrowtown. I’ll share my knowledge of photography and explain how I would shoot a particular scene.
4 hours – $400
8 hours – $600
Group Queenstown Photography Tours – visiting some beautiful local sights in the Queenstown area, with up to 3 other people.
4 hours – $220
I’ve been an avid photographer since 1996, and shooting some commercial images for various magazines in the early/mid 2000’s, including Performance Car Magazine, aviation calendars and books. Since 2005, I’ve also been shooting weddings, mixing my love for the outdoors and vast landscapes with bride & grooms. I’ve picked up a few awards along the way, including 15 NZIPP Iris Awards, and won Gold at the Kodak Gold Awards 2011-2014.
When I’m not shooting heli-weddings above Queenstown, I’m exploring New Zealand’s rich landscape and seeking those early morning sunrises.
My tours are run in compliance with the strict New Zealand Transport Agency laws – with a current Passenger Services Licence, P Endorsement and Level 2 First Aid Course. I’m also a volunteer fireman for my local Kingston station. My tours are currently run in my certified 2013 Subaru Outback.
In reality, gear isn’t too important, some of my favourite photos have been taken with my cellphone 😉 – But ultimately, having an SLR or modern mirrorless camera will give you the best results. I currently shoot with Canon 5D mk III’s and some various wide angle and prime lens. I also love to use Lee filters to get that perfect shot in camera. I typically bring my camera gear out with me to demonstrate, and also loan a camera/lens if needed.
