Aviation Adventures specialises in aerial photography for landscape photographers. Chris Rudge, your pilot, has worked as a professional photographer for the New Zealand Lands & Survey Department and was the official photographer for Tongariro National Park and the New Zealand Antarctic Programme. He has had photographs published in all leading newspapers in New Zealand, as well as major magazines. His greatest achievement was having a photograph published in National Geographic.

The company's Cessna 172 is perfect for photography as it has a high wing and the window can be opened in flight. We can fly you at dawn or late evening to get the best lighting. We are the favoured company used by several award-winning photographers.

The aircraft is charged out at an hourly rate, which is between one quarter to one third the price of a helicopter. Please phone Chris on 0274 733 228 to discuss what you would like to achieve.
