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 »

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.

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.

A couple of my favorite subjects to photograph but I hope to NEVER see them in the same shot!

A heck of an experience for Mick yesterday and stoked to see he is OK! All the best to him and his family and hope to see Mick carving up the waves again soon.

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 :-)

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.

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

The stunning Purakaunui Falls, Catlins, South Island, New Zealand.

I have fond memories of family time here when I was a child, with many an hour spent catching fresh water lobsters. I returned a few weeks back to find it was even more beautiful than I remembered and fantastic to see it still so pristine smile emoticon

New Zealand, you are awesome!

"It's the small things..."

Feel free to share :-)

I created this image of a small section of stream on an early morning hike up to Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado early this year.

I love the mix of detail in the ice with the softness of moving water that this image brings. This little section of stream was only about 30-40 cm's high and everyone walked right by...

There is no such thing as a "bad" day in Milford Sound. 

When we arrived last week it was very windy with pouring rain - perfect photography weather ;-) 

There was a lot of large scale drama with the mountainsides becoming a huge mass of waterfalls, many which were dispersed by the wind long before they reached Milford Sound below.

"Erotica" - no really... that is her name!

Black Water Lakes, Papua New Guinea.

Erotica seen here smoking tobacco in her pipe - they have been known to smoke other things too...

A bit off the subject but interesting - it is also a very common practice in PNG to feed marijuana to the pigs - it gives them the munchies, they eat more and grow big faster. Makes good sense given that pigs are the prime form of currency in most remote areas :-)

Meet Timi... Papua New Guinea.

I had previously shot with Timi back in 2010 and he kindly came in to spend some time with our photo tour group, both in this "lit" situation as well as out on the river. 

Although he lives in the Karawari region now Timi proudly displays his scarification which is traditional to the Kabriman tribe of the Black Water Lakes region. 

The "slicing" process was originally done with bamboo knives but they now use a razor blade. The work symbolises crocodile skin and is performed as the boys reach manhood. Timis' chest, shoulders, arms, back and legs are all sculpted. All of the work is completed in around 30 minutes, the wounds are then packed with a mix of oil, mud and ash to encourage the raised scarring.

For this shoot I used a single speedlite from the side to best display the stunning body art. The cameraw... more »

For this shoot I used a single speedlite from the side to best display the stunning body art. The camera was set manually to underexpose giving a black background. The speedlite was fired using Nikon's CLS system in TTL mode making for a very simple but effective lighting setup. I used a small flag attached to the speedlite to prevent light from spilling on to the background. 

We used similar setups for all of the group members with different camera brands. The girls in the group did confess to being a little flustered and distracted however :-) - but everyone created their own great images!

The last few days were spent photographing the Huli Wigman tribes in the Tari highlands of Papua New Guinea. 

Whilst tribal wars between the various clans are still very real part of daily life in this area they were very friendly and welcoming to us as outside visitors. We had a lot of fun here photographing the very colorful characters!

Please share if you enjoy :-)

The next journey awaits... Papua New Guinea.

Just checking my gear for the next exciting photo tour.

Off to Papua New Guinea tomorrow to lead a group of photographers through the very remote tribal lands exploring some of the worlds most amazing and intact cultural wonders.

We will be out of internet and phone coverage for two weeks and I look forward to catching up on my return.

Bon Voyage :-)

"Jump to it!"
Don't miss out on this years exciting Botswana photo tour! Low rainfalls this season will make for incredible wildlife viewing and action as the animals all come together for water.

Our very comfortable mobile safari camps will have you in prime viewing locations whilst having the adventure of a lifetime, hot showers, beautiful food and "sundowners" in the African sunset!
