A lovely sunrise at Kaikoura, I liked the seaweed colour matching the sky.
Above Port Levy on Banks Peninsula there are some trees with fabulous gnarled shapes, this is one, a bit of snow on the ground and it was falling!
Something different again, I did a shoot with the lovely Amanda and at the end we did a few hair flicks just for fun. It gives quite an interesting look I think.
Sunset over rocks at Kaikoura in North Canterbury.
Kaikoura at sunset, but take away the colours and the textures in the sea and rocks are still lovely.
This shot is from a trip I took to Kaikoura over the Easter weekend, this is sunset at the same location I made some sunrise images a few weeks ago. Kaikoura is always lovely and always different.
A bit of fun with some images from a recent shoot, a great location.
A composite image; something I had thought about a while ago and finally had a go at making.
Another image from Kaikoura at dawn, a lovely mild morning and not too early as we enter autumn here.
Taken early on Saturday morning in Kaikoura, lovely colours but not many clouds. I liked the colours and textures in the foreground.
A simple portrait of the lovely Siobhan shot with a strobe in the forest.
The lovely Siobhan was kind enough to model for me a few weeks ago, I liked the motion produced by the veil I liked this image, to me it gives the feeling of being trapped by the veil and with the wedding dress an interesting combination.
This is from a fun shoot with a lovely model and dancer Yan Zhou, great fun to work with. A group of us went out to the Re:Start Mall in Christchurch and played with a range of locations, outfits and lighting. This is one image I liked.
Another image from a recent model shoot with the lovely Yan Zhou, a great location and this is really a draft version of an image I wanted to make.
Early morning at Lake Tekapo, one of my favourite places, I liked the paddleboarder on the lake.
Over the last couple of months I have been working on some different things, working with models learning more about lighting and starting to add some more conceptual images to my portfolio. A slow but interesting process which will continue for some time. This is one image from a set I took in a local forest with the help of the lovely Siobhan Cuttance and thanks for lots of assistance Moray, Cheryl, Pauline and Julia.
The Moeraki Boulders with a little bit of colour, still not a great sunset though.
Not the best conditions for sunset at the Moeraki Boulders but always an interesting place,
Over the last few weeks I have been working on different types of images, as a learning process and to stretch myself a bit. I have worked with some wonderful people in a variety of locations and will share a few of the results over the next few weeks. This first image is of the lovely Yan Zhou at Godley Head just outside Christchurch. I actually used a flash in a large softbox just outside the window on this occasion as it was getting a little dark.
I have been very busy over Christmas and New Year but not taking many landscapes, but more of that later perhaps. This is from a trip to Oamaru, a long exposure of the harbour a little before sunset.
