Established in 2005 by award-winning Professional Photographer, Marcus Adams, Travelling Light Photography is New Zealand’s premier photography tours company, specialising in creating luxury guided, small group and solo traveller photography tours around the North and South Islands of New Zealand and across Australasia.

Our tours are also as environmentally friendly as they can be; we use modern and well maintained luxury vehicles, we have planted over 2,000 trees to offset our carbon emissions from your trip and we choose partners that have clear environmental policies – to ensure your visit here helps to maintain our beautiful country for the generations to come.

Get in touch today and let us begin planning your ultimate New Zealand Photo Tour.

Non-Photographers Welcome

Non-photographers are also well catered for. We can create an itinerary for partners/friends who prefer to occupy themselves in a different way (e.g. meet the wine maker/wine tasting, art trails, bush walking, spa and body treatments, tennis, golf, shopping etc.). We can also arrange other activities such as skiing, hunting, cycling and trout/sea fishing trips.

Whatever your photographic wishes, we can put together a photography tour to make them come true.

Total photography tour flexibility – you get to choose

Tailor-make your own private photography tour and create a very personal New Zealand travel and photography tour experience when you travel with Travelling Light Photography.

Experience more than just photography. If you want to see the best of New Zealand’s sights – and take in other experiences to make your trip here even more fulfilling – choose us. This is where we excel.

Accommodation and travel are designed especially to suit your needs and we are often asked to incorporate many other things into our photography tours – such as helicopter access to inaccessible shoot locations, culinary experiences, vineyard visits, whale watching, fishing and hunting.

We see it as our role to seek out the rare, the special, the truly unique – in order to ensure that our discerning clients have a photography tour and New Zealand experience that is unmatched.

Stunning locations and unique local knowledge will ensure your photography portfolio is much richer following your trip to New Zealand. Clients often win competitions with their photos from our photography tours.

Go where you want to go, travel when you want to and see what you want to see.

A totally flexible approach where – rather than offering standard tours on set dates – we create a photography tour schedule with your needs and preferences in mind.

We can meet you and pick you up from anywhere in New Zealand and drop you off at any destination – and create a photography tour for you to take you between those two points. If you have a particular aspect of technique you wish to work on, our professional photography experience and knowledge is at your personal disposal throughout your trip.
