Sublime Southern Photographic Opportunities

The South Island’s 13 most beautiful photo opportunities include a view of the braided banks of the Waimakariri River (pictured), the Matai Falls in The Caitlins and icebergs on Tasman Lake, according to last year’s New Zealand Travel Photographer of the Year Auckland-based Mike Hollman.

To get a handle of the island’s most sublime landscapes, CNN asked Hollman to share his favourite spots to photograph.

Hollman grew up on the South Island and says the landscape has had a tremendous impact on his work.

“The light is always changing and offering different views,” Hollman says.

“My favourite time to shoot is in autumn, especially April when the trees turn golden and the light on the landscape is magical.”
