Chasing the conditions

Apr 17, 2013

It's a matter of changing locations depending on the conditions at the moment with the Catlins area my main focus for photography today and tomorrow.  Autumn colour is still up to a week away here on the South Island and with some interesting weather conditions about to hit, I need to be in the right place at the right time.  Constantly following the radar......

Photographic Expeditions 2013

Apr 7, 2013

I have itchy feet right now so a quick trip to New Zealand next week is on the cards.  It's not totally unplanned, but I do have specific locations to concentrate on and with some important competitions coming up, maybe I can get a few photos worthy of consideration.  Peak Autumn in the South Island is not to be missed and I'll be concentating my time around Cental Otago, Canterbury, Aoraki/Mt Cook and the Catlins regions shooting some new compositions as well as reshooting some favourites with the technical camera.  The contasting color of the glacial lakes, yellow tree foliage and snow capped mountains is reminiscent of Canada's wonderful scenery and although much of New Zealand is currently drought stricken, there's never a shortage of interesting subject matter to photograph regardless of conditions.  i'm actually praying for some bad weather for my hike into the glacial lakes surrounding Mt Cook, as a bit of added drama makes for better photography!

Without a doubt, the highlight of the year for me will be the opportunity to photograph Iceland in early August.  This place has some of the most incredible landscape scenery in the world, and with very little darkness in the summertime the endless days will provide some ideal shooting conditions and probably very little sleep in the process.  This section of the trip will be two weeks and part of a UK photo expedition which will also include Northern Ireland, sections of the Scottish highlands and areas of Britain.
