Southern Alps Roadie

A NEW & EXCITING South Island Roadie, not to be missed!

Explore the best New Zealand’s South Island has to offer and take some great images along the way.  This photo tour is primarily for amateur and semi-professional photographers.  It will also focus on getting you to the best locations to photograph in the best light; we will shoot astro when the weather permits, and in the evenings we’ll utilise some time for post-processing.


We will visit some of the must-see classic locations and a few of my hidden gems along the way.  I've been travelling to the South Island every Winter for quite some time now and I believe it is the best time of year to visit.  The skies are gorgeous and dramatic, there's always plenty of snow on the mountains and occasionally there’s a dusting by the roadside.
