Mackenzie Country

Travelling on the secluded back roads in the heart of the Mackenzie highlands you will photograph streams, ponds, trees while being surrounded by surreal man-made landscapes.

This Basin has a unique character with a mix of man-made structures and landscapes that are surrounded by the magnificent Southern Alps.

Mike or Jackie will take you on a fantastic photographic experience. Discovering unique and unusual ways of making landscape photographs that will belong on a gallery wall. This is a great opportunity for photographers as all levels to push their creative boundaries and take away knowledge that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
