Acclaimed professional photographers & Sony Artisans Gary Hart and Don Smith will guide you on a 10-day journey through the breathtaking beauty that inspired the "Lord of the Rings" movies. Concentrating on the most beautiful regions of New Zealand’s spectacular South Island in its most photogenic season, we’ll photograph snow-capped peaks reflecting in turquoise lakes, plunging waterfalls that started their day as glaciers, lush rainforests so dense they feel like twilight, and the Milky Way in the darkest skies you’ve ever seen.
All-day fjord cruise on Doubtful Sound

June 16 - 25, 2020: We’ll start in Queenstown early afternoon on June 16, and wrap up in Queenstown mid-morning on June 25.
Two unforgettable tours: an all-day cruise on the must-be-seen-to-be-believed Doubtful Sound (snow-capped peaks, waterfalls, reflections, dolphins, seals, and maybe even some penguins), all the way out to the Tasman Sea; and a private helicopter onto Fox Glacier, where we’ll photograph Victoria Fall, explore ice caves, and enjoy spectacular views beneath Mount Cook and Mount Tasman.
