This time at sunrise on a cold calm morning over Lake Tai in the Northern Zhejiang province, China.
Although a relatively clear day this is one occasion that a little Chinese smog was a blessing. Its not often you can shoot directly into the sun with no blown out highlights!

FIRST IMAGES FROM JUST ANNOUNCED NIKON 24-70.

Some of my images from the just announced AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR test / PR shoot.

I had the privilege of shooting for Nikon Global with one of the first two of the new 24-70 lenses a couple of months back - a highly confidential project that felt a bit like a spy movie with secret deliveries and the lens being cloaked in secrecy for the duration of the shoot...
I very briefly used the lens on location in Papua New Guinea to shoot portraits in the remote tribal lands. I often shot wide open with the lens at 70mm which gave me a fantastic shallow depth of field to isolate my subjects from the sometimes busy backgrounds. The bokeh from this lens was really quite stunning!

I then shot in my homeland - the South Island of NZ.
I found the VR to be a fantastic advancement in the new 24-70 lens. It gave me a lot of... more »

Wild dog pups, Botswana.

The African wild dog, whilst an extremely efficient hunter is the most endangered large land carnivore on the planet. 
The current population has been estimated at roughly 39 subpopulations containing 6,600 adults, only 1,400 of which are fully grown. The decline of these populations is ongoing, due to habitat fragmentation, human persecution, and disease outbreaks :-(

On the last day of our South Island Photo Tour we were treated to super stormy and dramatic skies in Milford Sound. At times it almost looked as if Mitre Peak was erupting!
For this image I used a slow shutter speed to emphasise the drama in the fast moving clouds.

"The Great Wall of China"

whilst on the Chinese Golden hour theme...

I took the path less travelled with a local to access this remote part of the Great Wall called "Wang Jing Lou".. Loaded with camera gear, it was a grueling steep hike in blistering heat for the first hour followed by a hands and feet clamber / climb navigating our way up the side of a cliff for another couple of hours to reach this location.

The views were spectacular and there was not another person in sight! It is a very rugged area and the wall is unrestored so it had an incredible amount of character and mystique to it. I found myself in awe just wondering the sights that this wall had witnessed...

The setting sun fired out the "god rays" and beautifully lit the layers upon layers of mountains sprawled before us.

The setting sun fired out the "god rays" and beautifully lit the layers upon layers of mountains sprawled before us.

We stayed late to watch the sunset and the full moon rise before the journey back down the mountain around 11pm.

After all of the stories of smog and massive crowds of visitors at all of the "good" vantage points on the Wall it was quite surreal to have this totally to ourselves in complete silence... In Awe!

Evening light in Deadvlei, Namibia.
Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia.
The clay pan was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab river flooded, creating temporary shallow pools where the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. When the climate changed, drought hit the area, and sand dunes encroached on the pan, which blocked the river from the area.
The trees died around 700 years ago as there was no longer enough water to survive. The remaining skeletons of the trees, though not petrified, the wood does not decompose because it is so dry. (Wikipedia)

A Himba girl caring for a baby (not hers) in Otjikandero Village, Damara Land, Namibia.

Our first Namibia Photo Tour for 2016 is fully booked. Please email info@cmphoto.co.nz if you are interested in other 2016 dates :-)

Featuring wildlife, culture and landscapes.

The people of Otjikandero live in the the traditional Himba ways, they use ochre and ash to decorate their hair, ochre on their bodies and very ornate jewellery on their wrists and ankles. The women also use smoke and ash for cleaning themselves. An amazingly intact culture in these isolated areas.

I had the opportunity to photograph platypuses in the wild yesterday at Broken River, Queensland, Australia.
This was the first time I had ever seen one and they were much smaller than I expected!
These unique creatures are very elusive and only surface very briefly staying in dark areas... It was a challenge to get the shot! I was trying my best to show the bill and the tail and was thrilled to be able to capture a catchlight in his eye as well.
I was also trying to time it as the first ripples spread light across what was almost black water.

FIRST IMAGES FROM JUST ANNOUNCED NIKON 24-70.

Some of my images from the just announced AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR test / PR shoot.

I had the privilege of shooting for Nikon Global with one of the first two of the new 24-70 lenses a couple of months back - a highly confidential project that felt a bit like a spy movie with secret deliveries and the lens being cloaked in secrecy for the duration of the shoot...
I very briefly used the lens on location in Papua New Guinea to shoot portraits in the remote tribal lands. I often shot wide open with the lens at 70mm which gave me a fantastic shallow depth of field to isolate my subjects from the sometimes busy backgrounds. The bokeh from this lens was really quite stunning!

I then shot in my homeland - the South Island of NZ.

I then shot in my homeland - the South Island of NZ.
I found the VR to be a fantastic advancement in the new 24-70 lens. It gave me a lot of confidence shooting handheld out in the field. I spent time shooting in low light conditions from moving boats as well as early mornings hanging out of a helicopter over the snow covered alps. The VR enabled to me to concentrate on the creative process of taking better photographs without having to worry about camera shake - and it is so sharp!! The VR is so silent and smooth that you are not even aware of it's presence apart from greatly enhancing your ability to capture sharp images :-)

These are a few of my personal favorites from the shoot.

"Pining for Alaska"

I can't wait to return!

The amazing scenery off the Dalton Highway as we approach the Arctic Circle. These trees are coated with layers of frost - not snow really are stunning!

Come join our unique photography workshop featuring Arctic Landscapes, Iditarod, Ice Carving and Northern Lights.

Wai-O-Tapu, Rotorua, New Zealand.

Looking directly down on a submerged geyser in the "Artist's Palette" - which overflows from "Champagne Pool". Some of the visible stones are exposed but the geyser itself and the golds and blues are under clear hot water.

Taken from my drone :-)

"Artist's Palette" at Wai-O-Tapu (Sacred waters).

Please share if you enjoy :-)

The steam from the hot waters and the submerged geyser on the right of frame dance magically across the surface as the sun sets.

Another drone shot of the spectacular Champagne Pool taken during my shoot for Wai-O-Tapu. This time I was flying lower and it was later in the day. This unique location really is a visual wonderland :-)

I had a great day yesterday shooting these spectacular thermal areas for Wai-O-Tapu from my drone.

The late afternoon light and long shadows add drama to this image of Champagne Pool.

A lone caribou on the ridge line high in the Brooks Range, Arctic Alaska.

I love the contrast between the sunny ridge and the shaded mountainside behind and the way it highlights the fog from it's breath.

A tranquil morning in Auckland city - wrapped in a blanket of fog with only the skytower visible.
