Well before sunrise yesterday morning the sky above Aoraki Mt Cook showed our @purephotoadventures.nz Winter Tour crew just how awesome it can be. So stoked to end the tour with such a pretty display of light and such a rad bunch of people!
Personally Ive tried and failed 8 times over the last 3 years to photograph the Hooker Valley Track .. definitely got the camera out for this one! 🏔️

That time @nikon_photography_ @ryan_field_ and I went chasing light at Mt Doom 🌋
Speaking of chasing light, I’m off to the South Island for the @purephotoadventures.nz Winter Tour starting tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing some snowy scenes while showing 10 people our favourite spots in the Mackenzie Country. Have a great rest of the week all 🏔️

Twilight hour and cosy hobbit houses in The Shire ...
This one is for all the Lord of the Rings fans out there! On Friday I got to experience the Hobbiton Movie Set for the first time thanks to @hamiltonwaikato and @hobbitontours .. and what an amazing experience it was. A night full of exploring cute little hobbit homes, sunset, mulled wine, a mid winter feast and astro, all with a great bunch of people.
Hope you all had a nice weekend ✌️

I have spent so much time in this incredible part of New Zealand .. much of my portfolio comes from here and along with it treasured memories and epic adventures that will stay with me forever.
So I feel it important to share this image as it comes at a time when this pristine environment needs our help the most. Sadly the MacKenzie basin .. the gateway to Mt Cook .. is under threat by increased intensive dairy farming and the irrigation needed to support it.
It would be incredible if you could spare a moment to spread the word and stop this from happening by signing the petition in my bio. For more info you can visit @geoffreidnz and @greenpeacenz.
This place is significant to so many of us, it’s where a lot of us started our photographic journey into the mountains .. let’s keep it as nature intended it to be

Humbled by this amazing little country I get to call home ... Exploring part of New Zealand’s longest glacier , The Tasman , was one the best experiences I’ve ever had in Mt Cook National Park, and one I wanted to document. The glacier changes everyday , nothing is ever the same .. it is also retreating at a fairly alarming rate. The dramatic effects we have on our planet is so apparent in this environment .. what we are leaving to our children and the future gens growing up in it is always on my mind. It’s never too late for us to make a difference .. right the wrongs, preserve the future .. not for us, but for them ✌️
Massive thanks to @mtcookglacierguidingnz @mtcookskiplanesandhelis and pals @leecook_images @bhavika_rambhai for the epic day ❄️

Twilight with the mountains .. for that exact moment, there was no place else I’d rather have been ⛰️
Certainly not one of the longest hikes I’ve ever done , but up there with one of the sketchiest! Fun times holding on for dear life with @kirsty.tamatea ⛰️

Those photography moments when you arrive somewhere, and then panic sets in as you run about like a lunatic because you can quite believe what nature is presenting and you want to capture it .. this was one of those ⛰️
Hope you all had an awesome weekend ⛰️
