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 …

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 …

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 …

Taking the job travelling – Hugo Rentals Photography

So before I came over to New Zealand, I dropped a few emails around rental companies to see if they needed any photography… I was in luck! Hugo Rentals, a new company by Escape Rentals needed some photos for their website. We picked up the van in Auckland and had it for a total of 65 days… unfortunately the rain dominated for around 30 of those days making it hard to shoot the van in certain places! The sun, however, did come out from time to time and I was able to photograph the van in some of the most …

So thats New Zealand… all done!

So after 10,630km (6605 miles) we have finally finished travelling New Zealand! Having already covered the North Island and Kaikoura in previous blogs I thought I’d do one on the rest! Mount Cook on the South Island will stand out most in this blog as it was my favourite place in NZ. Milford Sound, Lake Tekapo, Fox Glacier and Tongariro Crossing were also some of the most amazing places I have ever been, I’m look forward to visiting them again in the future! The New Zealand wildlife has been pretty cool, from the rarest penguins in the world strolling along …
