• Landing in Queenstown New Zealand

    Welcome to the first video in my landscape photography series in New Zealand. To begin with, I wanted to share this stunning landscape as I fly in and land in Queenstown on the south island. The views really are breathtaking. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

  • Day 10 Queenstown

    Today, very sadly is my last day here in beautiful Queenstown.  What a memorable trip!  I have some of the most incredible shots from around the south island.  I can’t wait to get home and do a bit of post producing on them and load them to this website.   This morning began early for me.  I was up before dawn and headed to Coronet Peak (a mountain 15 mins from Queenstown).  From here I shot some amazing star shots with the glow of Queenstown below.  I used the magic Nikon 14-24mm lens and to say I’m happy with the shots I got is an understatement.  I then shot sunrise…

  • Day 9 Queenstown

    Glorious sunrise this morning.  Incredible colours of pink and purple as the sun came up over The Remarkables.   Well after getting engaged yesterday and a long night of celebrating I took it easy today and just cruised around the Queenstown area itself with the camera.   I mostly took shots over in the botanic gardens area and did a lot with the GoPro today in terms of time lapse videos.  Look forward to putting them together when I get home.   Finished the day off with casual cruise on the TSS Earnslaw (a 100 year old steam ship) across Lake Wakatipu with my new fiancé.  Perfect end to another…

  • Day 7 Queenstown

    Well, it had to happen and today was the day.  Snow!  Yes, I awoke to beautiful snow showers sprinkling across Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables.  The whole of the town took on this magical glow.  I live in a tropical climate so experiencing snow for me is special.   After a huge breakfast I headed out to Arrowtown, about 20 minutes away from Queenstown.  Here I found early settler houses and a main street filled with incredible character.  There’s the old Chinese settlement from the gold rush days, with huts so small you WOULD hit a cat if you did swing it!  Goodness knows how they survived in those tiny huts during…

  • Day 6 Queenstown

    Another long day of driving 6 hours to and from Milford Sound from Queenstown, but it is SO worth it!  Picture perfect day for weather once again and mother nature turned it on for me as I drove into Te Anau, the entry towards Milford Sound.   I got shots of ice caked rocks with rushing water coming down rivers.  Early morning mist on long sweeping plains, waterfalls, plants frozen solid, panoramas of misty snow capped mountains.  For the first time I witnessed an avalanche at Homer Tunnel.  It was scary and exhilarating all at the same time.  Needless to say I didn’t stick around long after that and continued…

  • Day 5 Queenstown

    Such a beautiful day today.  Started out a little cloudy, but quickly cleared up to reveal stunning mountain ranges covered in snow.   I decided to head to Glenorchy today.  A little town about 45 minutes away from Queenstown.  The mountains here are just stunning and combined with the aqua blue water of Lake Wakatipu made for some great shots.   From here I headed to a place called Paradise.  This is one of my favourite places in the world because of it’s diverse landscape elements.  Lakes, wildlife, forest, waterfalls, long sweeping plains, and mountains.  Of course it is here that I am in my element.  I almost filled my camera…
