Photograph spectacular locations around Queenstown and the Southern Lakes on a half-day private photography tour. Your guide is a passionate landscape photographer, who provides creative advice and shows you how to get the most from your camera.
  • Private 5-hour photography tour from Queenstown
  • Get tips on composition, exposure, and lighting for great photographs
  • Customize your tour to your interests
  • Travel in any direction from Queenstown to capture the majestic New Zealand landscape
Your private half-day tour starts with a pickup from your, Queenstown, Frankton or Arrowtown accommodation.

Start by going to a high vantage point above Queenstown, where you will gain a great overview of Queenstown, the great Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables Range. There, discuss destination options, your itinerary and photography preferences, and the day's conditions.

Some options include the old buildings and gold mining heritage of Queenstown and Central Otago, vineyards in the Gibbston Valley, vistas from mountain top lookouts, or nature shots at a wild river or beech forest.

Go south along Lake Wakatipu and the base of The Remarkables Range toward Kingston for mountains, waterfalls, an old steam train, and the lakeshore. To the north, take in Coronet Peak and Skippers Canyon, discover the region's gold mining heritage, alpine tussock landscapes, and vertiginous Skippers Canyon road.

Head west toward Glenorchy for waterfalls, views of Lake Wakatipu, Moke Lake, gold mining, farming, and Lord Of The Rings locations. To the east, find Arrowtown, the Crown Range, Gibbston Valley and rugged Kawarau Gorge.

Receive advice on making great photos with composition and exposure. Snack on the provided coffee, tea and cookies and travel solo or with your own group in the morning or afternoon. If desired, the morning option can allow time to watch the sunrise, while the afternoon option can last long enough to see the sunset hour (please advise on booking).

Martin Kohn was excellent and lovely guy. I re-learned a lot about photography that I had forgotten and got to see a beautiful area near Queenstown.

Martin was absolutely wonderful! It was so refreshing to be on a photography focused tour where I had the time to get the perfect shot in each location. He was very knowledgable about all areas and types of photography and even helped me understand my own camera better. It was a delightful 5 hours, I got beyond amazing shots, and his border collie was an extra bonus! Cannot recommend this tour enough for both the budding and die-hard photography enthusiast!

This photography tour was great. Martin, my photographer guide, took me to Skippers Canyon on its old mining road, one that is rated as the 7th most dangerous road in the world. But not only is Martin an expert photographer, he is also an excellent driver, so no worries on the road. He knew just where to stop to take the best photos of the spectacular canyon. If your love is taking photos, this tour is for you.
