Te Arai – Stuck in Customs

Sunset over the North Island

Daily Photo – Sunset over the North Island

The landscape on the North Island of NZ is vastly different to here around Queenstown on the South. Especially so around the more northern parts, past Auckland… still beautiful though. Especially so at sunset.

Passport Member Update for Sunday!

Today, if you’re a Passport Member, I have a cool new video that shows some of my favorites that I’ve selected so far while working on a new photo project. Actually, I’ll show you some that I really like and others that I don’t like and explain why… a little self-critique time. In fact, one of them I think I hate!

Te Arai Selections so far

I’ve been taking photos at this epic golf course called Te Arai to make some prints for some members. I’m about halfway through the process but thought you would like to see the selects so far… I may make another video after I finish the next round of photos and show you where the project is at!

Daily Photo – Te Arai as the sun sets

Here’s a new photo from my road trip around the North Island of New Zealand. This is one of the coolest golf courses in the world called Tara Iti. It runs right along the beach and when the sun gets low, you get some pretty incredible shadows along the fairways. I like shooting on golf courses, but I don’t always like making it obvious it’s a golf course. I like the idea that it’s a beautiful place that’s just convenient for playing golf if you want to.

Walking with Doug

Trey Ratcliff’s 360 Podcast – Doug Moores on consciousness & psychedelics – a journey through life!

You can hear me on Doug’s podcast at http://dougit.nz/podcast/trey-ratcliff where you can also find links to iTunes or Stitcher or whatever!

As for the above video, in this episode, Doug and I are walking along the coast on the North Island of New Zealand near Te Arai. He works there at the Te Arai Lodge where we stayed for a few nights. It’s a really cool family-run operation and I don’t think I’ve ever eaten so well (or healthily!) in my life. Doug does many things… podcaster, healer, yogi, builder, and well, you name it! Our talk spans from everything consciousness to psychedelics! Big surprise there, eh? Anyway, enjoy!

If this is your first time seeing a 360 Video, note you can grab the screen and look anywhere!
