Travelling through the South Island in May is a special experience for landscape photography enthusiasts. The changing colours of the landscape during this time of the year create a stunning backdrop, offering fantastic opportunities to capture breathtaking shots.
On this tour we journey into dramatic landscapes that are world-class for photography. There is a lot of variety on offer including rugged mountains, isolated valleys, lakes, rivers, waterfalls and stunning forests. We take you to some amazing locations, many off the beaten track, that showcase this regions true magic.
The South Island is an absolute heaven for any landscape photographer and we have designed this tour to capture the best of it. With hands on tuition and such epic scenery this is an experience that will inspire your landscape photography like no other.
Our Mountains & Sea South Island photography tour is an immersive hands on experience where you will be putting your newly acquired knowledge to use in-the-field. We believe in giving you sound knowledge and developing new skills in landscape photography, and then putting these to practice in some of the best landscapes in the world.
We have well planned and exciting schedules gained from many years’ experience photographing in these locations. However we are also big believers in allowing for flexibility in our schedule - especially to allow for changing weather conditions and dramatic light. We have learnt that sometimes the best photographs are captured when you ‘follow the light’.
