Hobbiton Movie Set Photography

The Return of the Hobbit!

Last week I returned to the Hobbiton Movie Set to shoot some more promo/marketing photos. No matter how many times I go back, it never gets old! Like I’ve said so many times before, I could shoot at Hobbiton forever! Over the past week the world has been going Hobbit mad with the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Having watched the film, I think it’s safe to say that Peter Jackson has ended his saga on a truly epic finale! A fitting farewell to Hobbits, Dwarves, Elves and Orcs! Despite there being no more movies, Middle Earth will continue …

My trip to the South Island was primarily to shoot for Jucy Rentals (see blog) however it also served another purpose. After spending 9 months in Auckland, a trip back to the South Island was definitely needed. As much as I love Auckland, I came to New Zealand for the epic landscapes (you know, the ones you see in Lord of the Rings). I needed to reignite my love for New Zealand and prove to myself why I have decided to live here for a few more years. 9 days later I have successfully achieved that, this country never ceases to …

See you around Freeman! (That's his name)

Cruising the South Island with Jucy Rentals!

What an awesome 9 days with Jucy Rentals! It’s been great to do some photography for such a prestiges rental company. As many people will tell you, the best way to see New Zealand is in a campervan. Travelling in a camper gives you so much freedom and flexibility, there are so many hidden spots that you can visit and explore in your own time. I wouldn’t travel any other way! I am lucky enough to have travelled the South Island on multiple occasions but this was my first experience with Jucy. After landing in Christchurch and picking up our …
