SPRING IN NEW ZELAND

10 days – 28th November to 7th December 2023

A great friend, photographer Tom Alves, once said: “there are beautiful countries and there is New Zealand”. This destiny always appears in the list of the five most beautiful countries in the world. The breathtaking and exotic landscapes are the reason that attracts photographers from all over the world, as well as cinema fans who want to get up close to the sets of films such as Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Chronicles of Narnia, Mission: Impossible, Avatar, etc. Some of these locations are part of the itinerary of our photographic expedition.

Itinerary

 

We pick you up from the airport and take you to a hotel with a jacuzzi to relax from your trip. At the end of the day, we photograph the beautiful sunset at The Remarkables Mountais.

 

We photograph the colors of spring around this classic city, with its American Wild West style, also capturing the sunset from the beautiful pier that sits over Lake Hayes.

 

Theoretical workshop in the hotel’s conference room. There will also be the delivery of the Professional Landscape Photographer Certificate, and then we set off to apply the knowledge acquired photographing in the region that served as the location for the filming of Lord of The Rings.

 

On this day, the beautiful bridge over the Shotover River is in the focus of the group’s lens, along with the beautiful Remarkables Hills, which were the location for the movie The Hobbit. The sunset on the lake will not be left out of the group’s clicks, and to close the day with a flourish, we will photograph the stars, applying astrophotography concepts on a pier on Lake Wakatipu.

Free day to photograph and explore the surroundings of Queenstown. The image editing workshop will also be held on this day.

 

We visit the Lonely Tree, also known as the most photographed tree in the world. Afterwards, we visit the suspension bridge over the incredible turquoise waters of the Blue Pools.

 

Moments of chilling out in thermal pools with a privileged view of Lake Tekapo. Afterwards, already at the lake, we record the unique colors of spring, with Lupins flowers, in pink, blue and violet tones. And to end the day in style, we practice astrophotography by composing the iconic Church of the Good Shepherd with the Milky Way.

 

We’ll explore Mount Cook National Park, which has been the setting for films such as Mission: Impossible and Vertical Limit. There we register true postcards, such as Lakes Pukaki, Hooker and Tasman.

 

We photograph the mountains over the waters of Lake Poaka, Lake Ruataniwha and the bridge over Lake Ohau.

 

This is departure day. Farewell to the group and to the new friends. We will transfer everyone to the airport. Each one will take with them the unforgettable memories and the new friendships made. We are sure that soon the group of friends will meet again on our other 4 photo tours: Switzerland, Patagonia, Northern Lights in Iceland and Italy.
