Local Knowledge
Remarkable Imagery Photography Tours take you to iconic locations and special places only a local could know. Martin Kohn, the company founder has been an artist and graphic designer for many years. After arriving in Queenstown he developed a passion and expertise in landscape photography, which he now shares through Remarkable Imagery Photography Tours. His designer's eye and thirst for exploration mean he knows where and how to capture classic images of our mountains, lakes rivers and forests as well as less well known, off the beaten track locations only a local would know.

After pickup we discuss your aims for the day, perhaps your own bucket list of locations, a theme, or really capturing the mood of a few special places.
