AUTUMN 2019 NZ TOUR
New Zealand is no doubt one of the most picturesque countries in the world. As a landscape photographer, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a lake scene to photograph. On our tour of New Zealand’s South Island, we’ll get to visit 3 of the largest lakes there are. These lakes are Lake Te Anau, Lake Wakatipu and Lake Wanaka. We will have many photo opportunities to get some amazing photos of these lake over the duration of the tour.
New Zealand is well and truly known for its epic mountainous landscapes and photographers from around the world flock to capture their immense beauty. You will get to see first hand what you have seen in thousands of photos all over the internet and in magazines, only this time you will experience the feeling that you get when you are surrounded by these epic landscapes. There will be so many opportunities to take some amazing mountain photos at almost every location we visit.
Landscape photographers are drawn to rivers and it’s not hard to understand why. Some of my favourite photos of all time have been taken in New Zealand with a river in the foreground. The colours, texture and motion of the water can create some absolutely amazing photos. We will be stopping along the way on several occasion to capture the beauty of the emerald/aqua waters of the rivers of New Zealand. When you look down from the bridge to Shotover River, you absolutely get chills in your bones. The colour of the water and the Autumn colours in the trees look so amazing. New Zealand truly has so much to offer the landscape photographer.

New Zealand Photo Tour Itinerary
Day 1 – Lake Tekapo
Our first stop is Lake Tekapo so we will need to get on the road quickly in order to get there for Sunset. If we have a clear night sky, Lake Tekapo is a great location to try out some astrophotography. Lake Tekapo is for the Church of the Good Shepard. It is the most photographed church in the southern hemisphere.
Day 2 – The Road To Wanaka
We will start the day with a sunrise shot at Lake Tekapo before hitting the road to Wanaka. There will be so many photo opportunities on the road to Wanaka and we’ll make sure to stop and spend some time at a few of these locations. Some of the highlights will be the drive into Mount Cook. We won’t be spending too much time in the area but it’s one of my favourite drives. We’ll also drive through Lindis Pass as we make our way to Wanaka. We’ll arrive at Wanaka with plenty of time for a Sunset shoot.
Day 3 – The Road To Te Anau
We’ll start of the day with a sunrise shoot at the Wanaka Tree before getting on the road. The drive to Te Anau is a long one, but there is a lot to see along the way. We’ll make some stops and make it to Te Anua for Sunset. Lake Te Anau is one of New Zealand’ largest lakes and its such a wonderful little town.
Day 4 – The Road To Milford Sound
Day 4 is a day of epic scenery. The drive to Milford sound is amazing. We’ll see it all, mountains, rivers, lakes and ancient forests. The only thing that will hamper our efforts on this drive is the weather. The area can receive up to 8,000 millimetres of rain per year. This can be a good thing because this means that its unlikely that we will see any boring blue skies and more likely that we get some great moody skies. The trip to Milford Sound is always one of the highlights of the tour.
Day 5 – The Road To Queenstown
We couldn’t start our day in a better place for a sunrise shoot. Milford Sound is an amazing part of the world with huge mountains rising straight out of the water. I think everyone will love this location as much as I do. It’s another 4 hr drive back to Queens town without any stops, so we’ll need to hit the road as early as we can in order to leave us enough time for shooting around Queenstown. I have some great locations lined up to shoot and I know everyone will love them.
Day 6 – Queenstown The Finale
This is our last day and our last sunrise shoot. We’ll take a drive up to Coronet Peak. We’ll enjoy our last breakfast in Arrowtown and some free time in Queenstown before departing New Zealand.
