August Update

Its been a bit slow on the updates as I have been doing some different commercial work which I can’t post yet! In the meantime here are some shots from a few sunrise missions we have been on to snag some NZ powder goods. Mt Olympus aka the playground of the gods put it on for an epic powder day.

Bit of a test of the Peak Designs Capture Plate while enjoying the snow at Mt Olympus.

Checking out the recently revamped step up at the local bikes trails when they were finally dry enough to ride, I got the flashes out and took a couple of MTB shots. Was good to get some external lighting out as I haven’t shot that style of photo for a while.

May Update

Its been a month or so since we last posted but we have had a busy month and the weather is starting to change to winter here in NZ so the bike content will slow down for a bit.

Major project for the month was filming a new video for the Christchurch Adventure Park to showcase how much of an epic spot they have there!

Check it out below:

We also went and shot a pile of photos up there as my bike has been broken!

Check them out below:

Last but not least as I mentioned earlier in this post the weather is changing and winter is kicking in, so we ventured out for a look and got some powdery goodness. There is only one photo from the day as it was to good to stop but check it below:

A few photos that didn’t end up being used for anything, so we thought they should see the light of day. Check them out below:

Ayers Rock

Something a little bit different – but I got the chance to visit Ayers Rock while doing some work a month or so ago.. And managed to get out for a few shots in between. Uluru is an incredibly interesting and cultural place to visit and is a must do for anyone visiting Australia. Check the photos out below:

Fujifilm GFX

The good people at Photo and Video International and Fujifilm NZ let me borrow the Fuji GFX50s medium format camera for the week. This camera is absolutely unreal, the dynamic range and detail is incredible. I couldn’t post all of the photos I shot below as I have sent some off for publications, but there are a range of images I shot through the week below, including Ben riding some of the Lyttleton MTB Trails and some scenic shots from Coleridge.

Another Photo Epic

I’ve been watching the sunset over the Port Hills for the lat month and thought it would be epic to get a shot in the late light down the Lava Flow track. I was pretty happy with the reuslts – check them below and a couple of bmx shots from the last week at the Social BMX compound. Good to see summer is coming back to Christchurch.
