Paradise Pictures

Laurence Belcher lives at the head of the lake close by the aptly named “Paradise” and wants to share it with others. A professional photographer for 30 years Laurence guides photographers whilst on the Paradise Pictures photographic tours.  It truly is paradise and my vision is to introduce photographers to the many beautiful, majestic and idyllic locations at the Head of the Lake which they many not otherwise find”.

Laurence is passionate about photography and his professional training as a former chef enabled him to channel his interests into food photography and television. He has contributed to a number of high profile books, and during his time with Television New Zealand he directed many lifestyle programmes including the successful ‘Taste New Zealand’.  

“I like to photograph a range of things including landscapes, people, action and corporate events and by sharing my knowledge and experiences with my clients my aim is for them to leave Queenstown feeling they have genuinely been to paradise”.
