Tā moko is the name for the Māori carved permanent body and face markings. Traditionally only high ranking individuals would receive moko in order to signify their transition into adulthood. Men predominantly wore moko on their faces, buttocks and thighs and women usually wore moko on their lips and chins.
Tā moko is a sign of cultural identity and in the past 20 years there has been a resurgence in the practice. Nowadays, most tā moko is applied using a tattoo gun but there has also been a revival of the use of uhi (chisels) to carve the designs

It's Anzac Day here in New Zealand which is a national day of remembrance. The day originally honoured the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. It now commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries in both New Zealand and Australia.

Confession time about my previous post; this shot was taken about half an hour before so this was technically my first landscape shot with my new camera. But to quote Jake Blues "Wasn't lies, it was just.....bullshit"

Ding Dong Round 2!
I'd been without a camera for a few weeks and a miserable git as a consequence. This is the spot where I killed my last camera so felt that it should be the location for my first landscape photo on my new camera. I needed closure...I'm now a happy chap :)

Waimangu Volcanic Valley is the 'world's youngest geothermal system' and as such it's always a compromise between getting a good composition and getting out of there in one piece. We had a geothermal expert with us to point out the relatively safe places to shoot from.

At the far end of lake Rotomahana is Mount Tarawera which is responsible for new zealands largest dome volcano eruption in 1886, killing over 100 people and taking the pink and white terraces with it

"You'll be right" was the response I got from a fisherman in Whakatane when I asked him if it was safe to go around the outside of Kohi point with the tide coming in. After climbing cliffs, jumping crevices and at one point using a tree trunk to create a bridge to get back, I realised he'd mistaken me for Rambo. I just managed to get back in time for sunset and get this shot of The Waiaraka Statue in Whakatane.

Another shot from the TECT shoot but this time with a different model and gun. I wish I had pulled out a little further as +Ben Smith was just out of shot, leaping around with an umbrella in his hand singing supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! The idea was to reduce the dappled light hitting the model. That's what I told Ben anyway

You're a bit screwed if you plan to walk or cycle across the Auckland Harbour Bridge as there are no lanes provided. When it was officially opened on 30 May 1959 it was all about chugging 3,348 ft over the Waitemata Harbour in your car. Nowadays of course, it's all about chugging 3,348 ft over the Waitemata Harbour in your car and feeling guilty about ignoring all the hitch hikers. You soon forget though as you wave back to the ones who chose to swim across.
It was a toss up between this shot and another one for the +Pikitia Postcards range. The other one won of course. It can be seen at https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/107644226042549026708/albums/5672860543705975409/5672861159204774626

A big wave that came from out of nowhere turned out to be the last nail in the coffin for my bag of shit camera. I feel a bit disrespectful saying that, it had served me well these past few years but younger, more attractive models had been vying for my attention. Poor bugger didn't stand a chance. This is the last exposure that was taken on it. RIP400D

As +Ben Smith has posted pictures of me 'modelling', I thought I should show how it's really done. I love the way she looks both vulnerable and yet strong at the same time.
We (myself and Ben) shot on location at TECT park , a 1700ha park offering trails developed for walking, motorcycling, mountain biking and horse-riding. With a target shooting facility under construction, we shot 3 models posing with rifles. Funnily enough, the (male) park rangers didn't seem to be too busy that day and 'assisted' us throughout the shoot.

This shot of Ohope beach was taken whilst getting new images for +Pikitia Postcards with +Ben Smith We hedged our bets; I shot with a long lens and Ben shot wide. I think Ben's works better and can be seen at https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/107644226042549026708/albums/5672860543705975409/5681786385330184002

A storm out at sea was producing some good conditions for both the surfers and photographers around Mount Maunganui. Understandably, rocks and surfers don't mix so well, so it was a case of shooting one or the other that morning

Motuotau (Rabbit Island) lies about 1,600m east of Mount Maunganui in New Zealand and is predominantly covered in native Pohutukawa trees.

Frying Pan lake in Waimangu Volcanic Valley is one of the world's largest hot springs. The bubbling cauldron is surrounded by native bush and the steaming monolith of cathedral rock. Taken at sunset whilst on a shoot with Ben Smith, a cropped version of this was included in the Pikitia postcard collection

As the mist rose of Lake Rerewhakaaitu, near Rotorua. I was presented with this beautiful scene and soft light. I waded out into the water towards the half submerged tree and waited patiently for the water to settle so I could grab a near perfect reflection.
