Extraordinary experience! Our guide Martin is an award winning photographer. He has strong passion about landscape photography. He taught us a lot about photography. He is very familiar with the Queenstown area. He narrated very well. He was very nice and the communication was great. We will definitely book a whole day tour with him next time.

Amazing experience! Martin is the best guide I have ever met. He is a professional landscape photographer. He shared a lot of photography tips with us. He has a strong passion about landscaping photography. He is very knowledgeable about the local history. He told us a lot about the old gold mining days. He knows a lot of secret photo shooting spots and stopped the car several times to let us take photos. His driving skill is great. We felt very safe. His communication was great. We had very nice conversations with him. We liked his narratives very much! The Skippers Canyon itself is absolutely beautiful! The scenic road is gorgeous. The experience is amazing!

Awesome - highly recommendable We went to two different locations. First we went to the Remarkables and did some very good shots of the area from high up and some artsy shots of a winding street. After that we took Skippers Road and wow, what a great landscape. It was even better than the first location. Martin was great and took the time to show me how to take the best pictures. I can highly this tour. Time was over way too soon.

A wonderful experience! My wife and I were absolutely thrilled with this day tour. Martin, our tour guide, did an outstanding job. He took us to places that we would not have gone on our own. One such place was Skippers Canyon. We would never have driven that ourselves. The scenery was magnificent! He also showed us photo tips on our smartphones that were very helpful; features we didn't know about. The tour was money and time well spent. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you, Martin. Kind regards, Dave and Helen Horner, Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA.

A great day out photographing the area around Queenstown The day was well spent with Martin showing us a number of locations around Queenstown that were would definitely not have found on our own. He was very knowledgeable about the area and can accomodate photographers at any level. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone considering doing it.

Great way to get up close and personal with Queenstown! This is a great option for someone looking to get a "local's perspective" of Queenstown and take a trip to lesser-known spots. I was (am) new to photography (I bought my first camera specifically for this trip) and Martin was a patient teacher. He was great at adapting his approach to my level of skill. During the day, not only did I learn and practice different techniques to compose photographs and learn some of the features of my camera, but I got to visit many "off the beaten path" spots to photograph! This trip left me feeling like I had really gotten to know Queenstown and the surrounding areas. Martin was very flexible, friendly and helpful. I couldn't recommend this trip more to someone looking to get to know Queenstown and capture some great pictures!

Great tour. Not just the canyon Small group tour was great. Martin was extremely flexible on the schedule as well as sites to see. Very knowledgeable and personable as well We didn’t rent a camera but Martin was very accommodating regarding taking photos at various spot on the tour. We had another couple who almost canceled but we’re very glad they did the tour.

Well worth day of photograph around Queenstown and Southern Lakes Had a great day with Martin taking photographs around Queenstown. We were able to visit many places ordinary tour group, or self-tour won't able to find and get to. Martin is great teacher, helped me in composition, using of light even operating my own camera. Specially enjoyed the "local" touch at the lunch spot and visiting around Kingstown.

Wonderful private photography tour Thanks to Martin for a great day of photography. With Martin's inside knowledge of the area, we were able to get to some areas well away from crowds and photograph the beautiful varied landscapes around Queenstown. And to learn and practice getting compositions that work.

Turning Photos into Artworks

GREAT LANDSCAPES INSPIRE AND STIMULATE MY IMAGINATION. AS A PHOTOGRAPHER, I'VE LEARNED THAT DEFINING AND CAPTURING THE ESSENCE OF THAT INSPIRATION IS THE KEY TO MAKING BREATHTAKING IMAGES. It's about harnessing that spark of imagination, understanding the essence of the landscape, and maximising its impact in the final image. This requires identifying powerful elements in […]

Blue Sky Days aren't Everything:

USING CLOUDS TO ENHANCE YOUR LANDSCAPES When it comes to capturing breathtaking landscape photographs, clouds can be a photographer's best friend. These fluffy, ever-changing formations add drama, mood, depth, and visual interest to your shots. Whether they're covering the sky with a thick blanket or scattered like cotton wool, clouds have the power to transform […]
