THE STORY OF SOUTHERN OUTFITTERS
Initially training in Biology (Zoology) at Otago university, Brent then spent 25 plus years working as a professional photographer, hunting guide & rescue paramedic. He made the leap in 2019 to start a professional hunting guiding and photography company. As a qualified outfitter member of the New Zealand Professional Hunting Guides Association and Department of Conservation Consent Holder, Southern Outfitters provides safe, informed access to the remotest regions of New Zealand.
Brent guides most of the adventures and specialises in game and landscape photography. There is no pressure to shoot but the option remains if a person decides to harvest an animal. Our philosophy is that hunting is much more than just the kill, as much pleasure and satisfaction can be had by observing animals and leaving them undetected. At other times the environment benefits from taking wild animals to reduce pressure on the native flora. This allows the client to contribute directly to conservation efforts while gathering meat, antler or horn. (In New Zealand all land mammals apart from bats are introduced and not native.)
Brent also offers a large selection of fine art images taken in New Zealand and abroad of images made during his adventures. Some of which hang in national collections like the Wallace Art Awards.
