Beautiful Bay of Plenty. The tour hosted by local professional photographer Bob Tulloch.

Experience the best the Bay of Plenty and beyond has to offer with Tulloch's Tours!


I will take you to some of my favourite spots, many are easy walks, but naturally the best results often come from knowing the best times for that special light. All you will need is your camera bag, and a small tripod.


There are different challenges to photographing people, so my tips will show you how to use natural light without any artificial gadgets. We will visit a working studio and observe how Tracy Stamatakos uses just window light to create a range of looks.


Many a successful image results from acute observation and knowing how to manipulate your camera, to create a powerful photograph. With a little coaching I will see your skills develop and that will inspire you to keep pushing the boundaries.

The Beautiful Bay of Plenty Tour with Bob Tulloch.

It will be a pleasure to take you on a little adventure here in the Bay of Plenty. Whether you are a skilled photographer or need a little help to advance, I will personally enjoy taking your photography to another level.

This is a tour with a difference. You don’t have to pack up each day. From our Tauranga base, each day we explore  fascinating destinations, travelling in an air conditioned coach. This is an all inclusive tour with comfort and quality throughout. The tour starts on a Sunday and includes five nights accommodation at the 4.5 star Colonial Court Motel. This is our “hub” where we can share images after each day’s shoot.

The tour caters for photo enthusiasts as well as those whose partners who would just like to explore the sights or do some walks, go fishing, play golf, etc. Your accommodation is 4 star plus, and your meals reflect the diversity of the  Bay of Plenty’s cuisine. Our tour is limited to 10 people to allow individual tuition.
