Are you looking for an exclusive custom workshop experience?
Based on the information you give us regarding the time you have available, photographic interests, and any other preferences, we tailor-make an itinerary just for you. As it is your adventure we continue to fine-tune the route and program until we come up with the best schedule for your time here. What could be better than that? So, whether you are looking for a trip just for yourself, or have a group to organise an expedition for, we would love to help you get the most out of your photography in New Zealand.
Custom trips are suitable for all levels of photographer. If you are just starting out in photography or are an amateur wanting to improve your images then travelling with a professional landscape photographer is the ideal way to learn and hone your skills. If you are an advanced amateur or professional, then having an expert guide to lead you to prime photographic locations at the right times of the day will ensure your time in New Zealand is used most effectively.
Taking a private trip allows you to choose an itinerary which best suits your schedule, photographic interests and physical capabilities. Imagine the uniqueness of exploring the South Island by helicopter, photographing in locations only a privileged few ever see. Maybe even trek along remote New Zealand tracks, many of which are unknown by visitors, taking you from secret valleys to mountain wildernesses.
Payments may be made by internet bank transfer or international bank transfer.
Custom workshop fees start from NZ$950.00 per day per person twin-share, based on two participants. Please contact us to discuss larger groups.
- Activities such as aerial photography by chartered helicopter are added at your request

I want to thank you for the South Island tour which you arranged for us. In addition to selecting spectacular locations, you knew just where and when we could capture the best photographs. While we would have certainly enjoyed New Zealand on our own, we would not have come home with outstanding images without your help. As you know, we hoped to combine our photography with a sampling of the luxury lodges and fine cuisine which are available in New Zealand. Thanks to your careful selection of accommodations and dining, our expectations in this regard were exceeded in every respect. We appreciate the effort you put into making our trip both memorable and productive. Your attitude was unfailing helpful, and we enjoyed traveling with you. In a world which generally over-promises and under-delivers, it is refreshing to meet an individual who does the opposite. We look forward to seeing more of New Zealand and to our next adventure with you.
