Lesley Whyte Photography’s all female staff will ensure your time with us is awesome, fun and safe, and that you are spoilt for photographic opportunities.   

Lesley Whyte Photography offers visitors to Auckland a unique tourism experience with our range of exciting and exclusive full-day photography tours for ladies.  As well as visiting some superbly photogenic Auckland locations, our escorted luxury photography tours include a real taste of the New Zealand experience with visits to a brewery or vineyard cellar door for locally produced wine or beer tasting, plus lunch at one of Auckland’s finest eateries. More importantly, for keen photographers our tours include options such as landscape photography at one of our famous west coast black sand beaches, street photography in one of Auckland’s trendy suburbs, and opportunities for golden hour and night photography of our beautiful Waitemata Harbour from several land-based locations around the city.

For the more adventurous and active visitors, we even offer a photographic day trip of the city on a three-wheel motorbike, a full-day walking tour visiting the points of interest in the city, or a two-day tour to the historic rural town of Dargaville, north of Auckland.  

From the time you are collected from your central city hotel and step into our luxury Mercedes minivan at 8.00am, until you are returned to your hotel around 5.00pm, you will be escorted by a Lesley Whyte Photography senior photographic guide and mentor and driven by one of our brand ambassadors.  

Interpreters for non-English-speaking or hearing-impaired visitors are also available on request.   

All Lesley Whyte Photography’s exclusive full-day photography tours for ladies are suitable for any level of photography expertise, from beginners to advanced, as full tuition on camera settings is given at each location. 

Should you wish to experiment with something new during your day out, you can get creative with our  loan equipment: Canon 60D crop sensor, Canon EOSR full frame, Canon EOSR to DSLR lens adaptor, ND2-400 filters, tripod, spare Canon batteries and camera bags and a selection of Canon mount lenses including 28mm and 50mm prime lenses, 18-55mm, 55-200mm and a Tamron G2 150-600mm.
