Why Travel with Us?

New Zealand’s tailor-made photography tour company of choice

We specialise in creating private small group photography tours. Our tailor-made small group photo tours are created with you in mind

As a discerning traveller and photographer, who enjoys the luxury of having your own professional photographer and tour guide, you will experience New Zealand at your own pace and only with the other guests in your party.

Unlike other impersonal coach and mini bus tours where you have to travel with others, with Travelling Light Photography you will enjoy a personal and private tour experience created just for you. This includes travel in a unique, spacious, comfortable and luxurious 4WD vehicle.

Why is our 4WD unique? It is one of only 29 in the world. A Land Rover Defender 3, prepared by Land Rover themselves for the G4 Challenge event. Resplendent in custom Tangiers Orange paintwork, full leather interior, air conditioning, tinted privacy glass to keep you and your equipment cool and safe, heated seats front and rear for chilly mornings. The Land Rover offers comfort, quiet cruising, ANCAP 5 star safety, full time 4WD for NZ’s tricky roads and weather conditions and, above all, the ability to take us to locations that other vehicles would struggle with.

Transportation, activities, accommodation, routes and itineraries are all meticulously planned in consultation with you to ensure that you get to see as much of New Zealand as possible, in the time you have available – while keeping travelling distances at a comfortable level.

Attentive, personal, discreet and professional service

As owner operators, we pride ourselves on taking care of and providing a personal service to our photography tour and accommodation guests. Being keen travellers ourselves, we understand the importance of making you feel at home in our country – while you are away from yours.

You will be guaranteed a personal and attentive service from Marcus. Whether you are a small group or travelling alone that is fine too; we often create bespoke tours for solo travellers

For VIP clients with special requirements in the areas of security and discretion, we have experience of working with your team to accommodate those needs. We can source, for example, discreet transport, private accommodation in exclusive locations, local close protection staff, media management staff and personal chefs.

Our aim is for you to return home refreshed and with happy memories of your time in New Zealand or beyond and with some stunning photographic images to record your travels.

We look forward to welcoming you to and showing you around New Zealand – and to meeting you soon.
