What an interesting few weeks. My main computer crashed so my work flow pretty much went to crap, I’m playing catch up now and getting back on to a lot of things. I have made the journey down to Queenstown and will be based here for a while. I have been busy shooting portraits the last few days and I’m pretty happy with the way everything went. I will post something for you on my next blog. In the meantime here are a few other images from lately.
Every year I take my car across on the Cook Strait ferry to the South Island. It’s always a stunning drive and this time we had a few truck loads of cows coming across with us as they made their way to new homes on South Island farms for the start of the new farming year for dairy farmers. Pretty iconic really – cows in a boat on a rough crossing to the south.
I’m always thinking of new ways to create images that are eye catching. I’m also trying to find models that are willing to try out my whacky ideas.
The idea here was to simply pour a heap of milk over Heath’s head and shoot some close up portraits with a ring flash. Left – Heath about to pour some milk – the milk was really really cold and gave him icecream head aches each time. I felt bad but it was so freaking funny I couldn’t stop laughing the whole shoot.
There has been quite a few publications hit the shelves in the last few weeks with a bunch of work that I have done over the last few months. Below is a sneak peak, but you should really go pick up a copy. There isn’t anything better than seeing it on paper.
Soggy Bones, an Australian mag did an interview with me and profiled my work over ten pages. Super happy to get my work profiled. Go grab a copy or if you cant find one it should be free through this link shortly.
Also the second issue of Transfer for the season has hit the shelf. They have done a great job once again and this one comes with the GO SEEK movie DVD produced by Ben Ryan. I spent a lot of time with the Reason Films crew this last year and shot a bunch with them in the US. I have a 14 page photo essay in this issue from my journeys over around Minnesota and Silverton.
So I have a load of work on over the next three weeks and I’m really excited about all the new projects going on. I will do my best to do regular posts when I can. . Don’t forget to click on the Transfer link up further and vote for NZ in the poll. See you out there.
