Figuring out where to take some fabulous photo's of your self can be quite daunting. I have compiled a list on some of my fave place's. Also many more worth exploring. Here is a list I have compiled.
Tumble Down Bay
A small wee bay an hours drive from Christchurch. This photo was taken at 7.30am in winter. This spot is not for the faint-hearted. The drive is on a cliffs edge and gravel for 15minutes. I only do 2 shoots at this location a year.
A beautiful wee waterfall. An hour plus drive to windwhistle and a 30min hike in and 30min hike out. This was taken in winter, this spot can be quite crowded in summer.
Washpen Falls GPS
Hoon Hay Scenic Reserve
Situated on the port hills. Looks super moody when and mystical when there is a cloud front. Lots of warm brown tones and a super view when there is no clouds at all! Very green in spring. Better option in summer/autumn time.

Now if you are keen for an adventure, want to find some crazy cool places. Let's plan an adventure. These do cost more - just my travel but I am happy to follow you round the mountains. I travel all around the north and south island for weddings in summer, if we plan it together I can meet you anywhere!
- Lake Lyndon, a short 1 and a hlf hour drive from Christchurch. This picturesque lake turns into a complete skating rink in the winter. The snowy mountains and epic views. There is also an amazing astro photography opportunity. We could plan a half day adventure, head off a couple hours before sunset starts at castle hill among the super cool rocks. Head to the lake near on sunset and snap a few adventure shots. Then finish in the dark for an astro shot. P.s This one only looks this cool in winter ;)
Deer Park Heights In Queestown
All the mountain views of Queenstown without the cost of a helicopter. Photos shoots do cost to be done here and you will need to inquire with deer park heights for this :)
