Are you ready?
For all new bookings, Night Shoots will only be available during the winter months between June~September.
Additional wait time past the first 60mins, will be charged at NZ$150 per 15min block, if clouds persist.
Last but not least, if it is cloudy we won't be able to see any stars.
The Moon creates huge light pollution too, so this photoshoot can only happen either before or after the moon has set, or on a night with a New Moon (about 3 days per month).
In Big cities with many street lights, cars and brightly lit buildings, it is impossible to take photos with the stars. We are very lucky to have our bases in Queenstown and Tekapo, which are dark enough at night to get magnificent views like this.
