Camera Gear – Stuck in Customs

3 AM. Iceland.

Daily Photo – 3 AM. Iceland.

When I started getting hardcore into photography, I spent four summers in a row in Iceland. The middle of the summer is quite special there because the sun never really goes down. So, I would sleep during the day and then go out to hike during a 5-hour sunset followed immediately by a 5-hour sunrise. It was very peaceful and moving…

Daily Photo – One from the Archive

Here’s an image back from when I was first playing with drones. Back then you had a GoPro attached to it and sent it off on its journey, pretty much guessed the shot and brought it back. You never knew what you’d get until later. It was lots of fun but the more recent models are definitely an improvement!

Yellow and Blue in Pittsburgh

Daily Photo – Yellow and Blue in Pittsburgh

While we were staying in Pittsburgh the team and I took a wander down the river to capture some footage for a video we were working on. That of course also means time for some photos. It was a fun walk and I love how the yellow of the bridges plays nicely with the blues of the night…

The Long and Not So Winding Road

Daily Photo – The Long and Not So Winding Road

This is something I don’t see so much nowadays, living on the South Island of NZ. The geography around Queenstown and the alps just doesn’t allow it, so it’s a nice change when I’m in the US to grab shots like this. (This one really did go on for ages, even with the zoom lens compression it’s a distance!)
