The best and most comprehensive photography tour on the South Island.This tour led by Richard Young totally exceeded my expectations. Richard is a very accomplished photographer who very generously shared his expertise in the field and in editing sessions. In addition he provided handouts he had written on the topics of coastal , waterfalls, long exposure, bird, mountain landscape, and astro photography that were excellent guides that included suggested camera settings and recommended filters. Richard as a leader was incredibly energetic and enthusiastic from pre-dawn assembly to the end of the day sunset shoots and dinner together. Rob Brown, the second tour leader, has a huge amount of experience as a landscape photographer and conservationist and it was very interesting to gain his insight and to have the benefit of his perspective on photography and preserving the environment. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has a passion for the natural landscape and wildlife. Beginners and seasoned photographers will find this tour to be a fulfilling experience that will long be remembered.
