South Island Highlights Photo Tour
20-day New Zealand photography tour capturing some of the country’s best untouched wilderness and the Te Wahipounamu world heritage area. This tour will be lead with Richard Young along with three other top New Zealand landscape photographers throughout different parts; Rob Brown, Shaun Barnett and Ken Wright.
You will have the opportunity to learn from 4 professional photographers and get to photograph a total of 6 of the country's finest national parks.
Starting in Queenstown the tour will first head to Mt Cook National Park to photograph some of the amazing alpine scenery around New Zealand’s highest peak. We will cross back through Central Otago to the South Island’s West Coast. With excellent opportunities to capture the wild beaches of the area, its forests and waterfalls, as well as views of the snow-covered Southern Alps.
The South Island’s West Coast boasts more forests, mountains and protected lands than any other region of New Zealand. Here, wild and remote coastlines are flanked by primeval rainforests, with the high peaks and glaciers of the Southern Alps rising beyond.
Journeying on to the top of the South Island you will then spend 7 days capturing coastal landscape around Golden Bay and the top of the South Island, including a full day on a private charter boat in the world famous Abel Tasman National Park.
At the top of the South Island you will have the opportunity to photograph stunning limestone formations, lush native forests and ever-changing sand dunes and where mountains meet the beautiful South Pacific Ocean.
You will spend multiple days on boats exploring photographic locations and marine wildlife in the world famous Abel Tasman National Park; Marlborough Sounds and Kaikoura Coast. The boats will allow us to visit beaches and bays that would normally take days to walk into; shoot marine wildlife and gain access to short walking tracks to stunning photography locations.
