Let us take the hard work out of planning your very own New Zealand photography tour by offering you a unique, tailor-made itinerary, arranging all transportation and accommodations, and guiding you around the best photographic locations that this beautiful country has to offer. All in your time and at your pace.
New Zealand offers an extraordinary diversity of scenery and is a true paradise for the travel and landscape photographer. Soaring snow-capped mountain peaks, pristine lakes, stunning glaciers and alpine valleys, extraordinary braided rivers, lush green farmlands and rainforests, beautiful beaches, coves and ocean coastlines, waterfalls, and much more. It’s also a wonderful place to visit, with its unique Polynesian Maori culture, great food and wine trails, outdoor leisure activities and marine wildlife.
We will consult with you on the type of photography you are most interested in doing, where you’d like to go and what you’d like to see, and then create a tour itinerary to suit you, your available time and your budget. We will organize all hotel accommodation, transportation from place to place in a comfortable four-wheel drive vehicle, as well as special excursions or private charters by boat, small plane or helicopter. We can offer a private, fully-inclusive vacation tour, or simply fit into your existing travel itinerary for just a few days. We are as flexible as you want us to be.
Your host and professional guide is Neil Protheroe, a widely-published landscape photographer with an extensive career background in tourism and hospitality. He is based in the small coastal town of Kaikoura, where he is the owner of award-winning luxury b&b accommodation, Manakau Lodge. Neil knows the South Island intimately and will plan your photography trip to make sure you get to the best spots, spending the right amount of time in each, and with no rushed deadlines to meet.
Whether you are an experienced, enthusiastic photographer just wanting to be shown around, or if you are keen to develop your photography skills and could use some technical help and guidance out in the field, an Images Abound photography tour is a great way to combine your enjoyment of photography with an unforgettable vacation and travel experience in New Zealand.
Let us help you put a great plan together. We operate in the quieter seasons from May to October, when the landscape is looking its best and the photographic opportunities are most rewarding.
