Another year over… Bring on 2015!

What another incredible year! I’ve been back to the South Island, spent time back home and visited New York! This time last year I was struggling to break into the Auckland photography scene – 1 year on and I have some of the best clients I’ve ever had! This year my photography took a turn as I focused more on landscapes and stock images! I still shoot my usual portraits and events but I’m enjoying experimenting in new areas of photography. Next year I will continue to build on my New Zealand client base and concentrate more on tourism photography. As I …

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 …

New York, New York!!

So New York was awesome… here are a few quick snaps from the trip! I could write a huge blog and go on about every last thing we did but I’d end up rambling on about the constant airport style security checks (completely understandable!) and tripod bans! I’ll let the photos do the talking instead! Next time I’m less tourist and more photographer! So many more shots I wanted to take!

Hobbiton TECNZ

An evening in the Shire

Last week Hobbiton hosted the guests of the TECNZ (Tourism Export Council New Zealand) conference for a special evening in the Shire. From a tour around the set to prop and prosthetics displays in a pop up Weta Workshop, guests certainly had a night to remember!

New Zealand Landscapes: Tekapo to Milford Sound

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 …
