Auckland Ultimate Photo and Discovery Tour Explore Auckland's Wild West Coast with tours designed for photographers , discoverers and nature lovers. The tours are run by local photographer Brett Lees who has lived and worked in the area all his life. His intimate knowledge of the area means the day can be adapted to fit peoples personal preferences and fitness levels.
Brett is also well versed in the local history of the early Māori and Europeans and the local Ecology and will share this knowledge throughout the day. Being a professional photographer he is only too happy to point out some of the more photogenic spots and you are free to use his experience as much or little as you like.
These are not whistle stop tours designed to get as many snaps as possible from the same spots as everyone else , they are tours for people who genuinely want to walk the beaches and sand dunes and clamber over rocks and dunes and feel the ocean smashing into the cliffs below. They are designed for discoveries, photographers, nature lovers, people who want to feel the wind in their hair and the sand between their toes.
The tours embrace the Kiwi ethos of being relaxed and flexible yet always maintaining a high degree of professionalism and safety. Both our West Coast tours offer a delicious wholesome lunch at the Iconic Piha Cafe.
