        Your guide, a passionate local landscape photographer will take you to his favourite spots for landscape photography. Initially, he will discuss with you an itinerary based on your interests and skills, light and weather on the day. Destinations can include: Glenorchy, The Remarkables, Coronet Peak, Skippers Canyon, Gibbston. Queenstown is surrounded by incredibly beautiful, magnificent locations: stunning glacial lakes, towering mountain ranges, windswept, tussock clad alpine high country, icy blue rivers, glittering waterfalls, rugged canyons and gorges. Pristine landscapes, untouched by humans and places that show the struggle to tame the land. Quaint gold mining settlements like Arrowtown and Cromwell and fruit and wine growing areas to the east. Whichever direction you choose, your guide will take you to the best places to capture the splendour and magnificence. You will be mentored on finding great shots, composition and exposure to help you capture the majesty and beauty.

        Photo Opportunities in every direction. Thanks Martin Kohn.
        Had a fabulous 5 hours with Martin on Skippers Road in my visit to Skippers Canyon. The 5 hours with Martin was great value for money. Martin's knowledge of the area was excellent and I learnt a lot about the Canyon and it's history. I went there to see somewhere which is dificult to visit with out a 4WD. I will gladly seek out Martin on my next visit to Queenstown.

        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 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. Highly recommended Read more about Half Day Skippers Canyon Photography Adventure -

        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.

        Martin’s expertise in managing a rainy day photo outing, combining cloud, fog and low light to create moody photo landscapes was the highlight for me. I’m so happy to have a collection of lovely New Zealand landscape as a momento of my holiday.

        Martin made this experience more fun and interesting with his local knowledge and going out of his way to awesome locations for photos. I learned so much I just have to put it into practice now .. Martin is a great tutor and very patient. I highly recommend if you are looking at doing landscape photography or just wanting to go and take some awesome photos this is the man for you.

        Half Day Photography Tour
        I had a great afternoon of photography and sightseeing with Martin. Learned a few things and had some laughs along the way. Would definately recommend this tour if you have a free afternoon in Queenstown.

        Wonderful and instructive day
        My experience with Martin was a complete success. His knowledge of the area and low key teaching style gave me lots of opportunities to try things and then he made suggestions that made each shot better. I came away with a better "eye" and additional skills I will use everytime I think about capturing a scene. I highly recommend this tour.

        Time with a photographer in his backyard
        Martin's enthusiasm for the area around Queenstown and Cromwell is matched only by his knowledge of photography. He has an easy open style that belies his focus on getting you to and helping you get the right shot. After spending a day with him I had a much greater appreciation of the various options on my camera as well as how to compose a shot. Out the back of Queenstown and Cromwell I had plenty of time to practice and learn. I would recommend him without hesitation.

        Amazing afternoon of photography
        What a wonderful experience! We spent the afternoon traveling to photography locations only a local would know, and got dozens of fantastic pictures that you won't see in the guidebooks or typical tourist spots. Martin was a fantastic teacher and guide, providing great photography tips and historic insight to the locations we visited. It was a wonderful trip and I came away with a month's worth of wonderful images I couldn't have gotten anywhere else. If you love landscape photography you owe it to yourself to book this adventure.

      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.

      I arrived in Queenstown in the morning, and did not want to waste half a day so I booked the half day tour. Turned out to be a great decision! Martin is a phenomenal photographer, and knew the area really well. Learned some cool photography pointers as well! We went to Skippers Canyon which is just an amazing place to see and take photos. The only thing I didn't like about my tour was it was too short!!! If I end up coming back to Queenstown, I will definitely book a full day tour and see the other spots.
