We are truly a lucky bunch here in New Zealand, the country provides such a vast array of diversity in the landscape that for us photographers, it’s a dream to live here. New Zealand might look small on the map, but its amount of contrasting landscapes make it deceivingly large for any photographer, it can be terribly hard to choose where to head. To help, we like to keep you updated on the locations we visit with our tours and important things to remember to do once you’ve been. To inspire you to come to visit us, you can find out more via photography, videography and with in-depth information from our professional photographer tutors, locals based throughout the country. Have a look at some of our articles to find some inspiration to get yourself out there and shooting.
