Perfect Timing - Milky Way at Nugget Point
10 months ago 11

The Clouds Did Part I planned this image about 7 months ago. Using my Photopills app, I worked out the new moon date and what time the galactic centre would be over the lighthouse like this. The Milky Way would be in position at around 11pm. Unfortunately, the sky was black with clouds when we […]

Moreaki Boulders This sunrise at Meoraki was probably one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. It lasted for about 45 minutes and just kept getting better. The beach was packed with photographers. Since this is a very easy location to get to, I had expected that to be the case. Fortunately I was the […]

Climbing the Point Climbing up to take this shot isn’t exactly mountain climbing, but it’s definitely a bit ropy, especially when doing it in the dark. You scramble up the side of the cliff, and then make your way ever upwards until you run low on bravery and choose your spot. At the point where […]

Epic Sunset Over Milford Sound
10 months, 3 weeks ago 19

A Surprise Sunset at Milford It had been raining all day. I was waiting for sunset but didn’t have high expectations. Milford Sound is famously rainy and there hadn’t been even the slightest glimpse of a sky since we’d arrived earlier in the day – just thick clouds and rain. But of course, as photographers, […]

Running Around NZ One of the added bonuses of being in New Zealand is the walking trails. My wife and I aren’t walkers typically, but we are runners. My wife runs a comfortable 6 minute mile (and under) over 10km, whereas I kind of plod along slowly, just enjoying myself. Back in Korea there was […]

That Wanaka Tree

The Most Photographed Tree in the World? We went to the beautiful town of Wanaka for 2 days, not to take photos, but to see my wife’s brother who has been living there for years. I’ve never really been interested in taking photos of the Wanaka tree. I’ve seen some very nice images of it, […]

Sunset at Motukiekie Beach
11 months, 1 week ago 8

Taking a Dangerous Risk This wonderful location is one of the main reasons I came to New Zealand. For years I’ve wanted to capture a dynamic seascape with those lovely starfish (I’m not sure if these are starfish, so apologies if I’m wrong), and water cutting through the narrow gullies. It took 7 days for […]

Back Shooting It feels wonderful to be out shooting regularly, especially in a country so immensely beautiful as New Zealand. After an intense period of recording YouTube tutorials, developing Raya Pro and publishing the Mastering Raya Pro course, I was itching to go out and shoot. I’m sure you know the feeling. When you’re in […]

I’ve been fairly quiet on the internet for the past few months, not posting on my blog or social media, because I’ve been working hard to bring some awesome updates to Raya Pro, and develop a comprehensive course, called ‘Mastering Raya Pro‘, showing users how to use its powerful tools with ease. The course teaches […]

Where To Live? My wife and I are at a crossroad in our lives. It is time to create a place called home – a place of comfort to return to after long photography trips. We aren’t location independent at the moment. We have an apartment in South Korea. But since our stay in S. […]
