Part of a cheeky 5-shot pano from castlepoint last weekend. what software do you pano connoisseurs use to stitch your photos together?
..
it's game day for the mighty all blacks today! time to try on my ill-fitting all blacks jersey, do a few push-ups, a light jog and then mosey on into town for a couple of brewskies and hopefully a victory over the french. #rainbowwarrior #pano #castlepoint #wairarapa #instameet #fujifilm #gfx50s #fujicolor

Shout out to t-bus who took me to this spot @thomas_busby_photography ..

today i watched a pukeko (blue chicken) attempt to cross the road in kenepuru (pronounced: kenny-poo-roo) which is also where i was born. as i passed by it was in the opposing lane bobbing its head, judging the distance between cars. i watch in my rear view mirror as a red honda civic travelling in the opposite direction swerves..smack!! one less lanky blue bird to count in the 2019 kenepuru pukeko census 😐 #civicwithbadintentions #bluemurder #peta #obirdtuary #taranaki #taranakilikenoother #mounttaranaki #nzmustdo #newzealandguide #purenewzealand #lonetree #sunriseyoga #sunrisehunter #beautifulworld #mountainscape #snowymorning #westcoast_exposures #westside #treeoflife #treestagram #pinksky #pukeko #hitandrun #newzealand #birdslife #earthpix #earthfocus

Cape palliser photography extravaganza 😁

after last weekend's sweet trip to castlepoint it already has me thinking about the next instameet. anyone keen to hit cape palliser for a weekend? it's closer to wellington than castlepoint but has some equally as epic landscapes! probably not for a couple of months to give everyone more notice this time 😉

check out this list i'm making up on the spot right this moment..just with my brain..no google #megamemory putangirua pinnacles (sweet as rocks and cliffs shooting skywards) --- cape palliser lighthouse (with approximately 350 steps to the top) --- the tractor village of ngawi (pronounced track-tah) --- white cliffs of narnia (giant cliffs much taller and whiter than any tree i've ever seen) --- fish and chips (food photography and also dinner.. it's a 2 for 1!) --- raging south coast swells with epic surf --- stunning coastline with black sand beaches (perfect for long exposures) --- day trip to lake ferry and lake wairarapa.
if there's plenty of interest i'll make a start with the planning..let me know in the comments 👊 every single person welcome (except you donald), even if it’s your first day of photography 🤗

I remember my feet being frozen, singing as loud as i could and the people next to me at the tarn giving me funny looks. i also remember imagining those people..the cold does strange things to a man! mentally... and physically 🤭
my number one tip for this walk is to wear two pairs of underpants or one good pair of merino or alpaca underpants. this is a preventative measure and one that will protect not just your ego but your most important assets as well #menshealth #shrinkageaintfunny #taranakihardcore if you're a woman then my number one tip is to not travel alone..and if you're not traveling alone then also pack a spare pair of underpants for your traveling partner #browniepoints if you've been up to this spot, please add your top tip in the comments below #educationnation .....

With the castlepoint photography extravaganza drawing to a close, it's time to reflect on the time i spent with some spectacular folk from all over the north island (people came from as far away as hamilton and gisborne). in no particular order here are the good folk that made the weekend one to remember:
@rosie_crarer
@dan.h.nz
@tasmin_hunter
@piteshmistry
@hollyneill
@debc_nz
@brentpurcell.nz
@rach_wlg
@jessierosesmith
@colin_sherman
@gareth_sherman
@frankhopfler

we were blessed with some bloody good weather considering it is the middle of winter here in nz. saturday out at riversdale was particularly pleasant. we saw a seal with one eye and the entrance to winnie the pooh's beachside property. more to come.. including a car launching over a judder bar at 100km/h, a flare being set off illegally and other misadventures!

Castlepoint photography extravaganza - this weekend!
..
the accommodation we booked for friday and saturday nights is full!
thanks for the great response everyone. i'm really looking forward to meeting those i haven't before and catching up with old friends again for a weekend of photographic awesomeness.
..
@fujifilmnz has come to the party and has sent down some cool stuff for us to play with, including the new x-h1 mirrorless camera. if you’d like to try some of the cameras just bring your own sd card.
..
the plan is pretty simple. friday night – astro. saturday – sunrise, sunset, astro. sunday – sunrise then go home.
if you’re thinking of coming over for the day on saturday we should be pretty easy to find, castlepoint isn’t a big place 😃 i’ll keep you updated in my stories.

bring your laptop along if you want to do some photo-editing. everyone has their own style, we can probably learn a lot from each other.

Tekapo - one of those seemingly rare sunsets (for wellington anyway) that kept burning for over 40 minutes! i was standing up the top of a hill with a frenchman and he wasn't saying things like sacré bleu..just silence..maybe a little drooling 🤤 .-.
-.-
castlepoint photography extravaganza update.
the 10-day weather forecast looks great and this far out it's usually very accurate so i'm getting pretty excited. i've removed my woollen jumpers and thermal underpants from the suitcase and replaced them with singlets and regular underpants. i'm looking forward to catching up with everybody over the weekend and shooting some sweet sweet landscapes.

Mount taranaki - new zealand.
i have found this place to be super fickle on my few visits. i’m up in taranaki for work every 6 weeks and the weather forecast is rarely accurate making it a bit of a gamble whether to make the 1.5-2hr walk up to this spot. but i am a gambling man so i will always give it a c***k if the weather report is marginal. —-

I'm booking a holiday home in castlepoint for the 15th and 16th june for an east coast photography extravaganza! it's a good chance to hang out with a bunch of like-minded people, shoot the seascape, lighthouse, boats, fish, milky way, forest, people, long exposures, short exposures, double exposures, full exposures, sand, seals, surfing, clouds and the breeze.
come for the entire weekend, one night, one day, some of the day, just the sunrise, just the sunset or fantastic company.
if you've ever thought about jumping ship from dslr to mirrorless (or just curious) or you're already a fujifilm user then this is a great chance to have a play with some fujifilm cameras and lenses and learn a bit more about it from a fujifilm employee..me 😉
anybody is welcome to come along, it's really about the photography and the people, playing with some cool gear is just a bonus. if you're just starting out with photography there will be no better place to learn.
express your interest below..tag people who may be interested and if there's enough people i'll start organising it. if you plan on staying overnight, accommodation is limited so first in first served. if you're just keen for a day trip then breeze in at your leisure.

A cold snap ❄️ has come to wellington so i’m outta here, off to sunny hawkes bay to visit @mitchperfect.nz and @lorenoconnorphotography 👌
if you don’t know about hawkes bay well let me tell you a few things. me and my mates rick, blair and tim once came across a waterfall and a tree with a swing on it. we looked at the waterfall, it was pleasant. we swung from the tree and landed in the water below. we ate watermelon and the police visited 👮‍♀️ it was a great day and is definitely in my top 50 hawkes bay visits. bit of a fib in there actually..we didn’t ‘come across’ this river, rick’s a local and he took us there. the watermelon we pinched from some other people there but had to pay them back when the police came 🤣

Fujifilm gfx50s with gf23mm

i was standing at the river minding my own business when this retired bloke john comes up to me and bleats “the river is strangely high isn’t it?!”. he said it in such a way that suggested the answer was probably yes. i said “yes, it’s peculiarly high”. he paused for a period of time that made me feel uncomfortable..dammit, it was a trick question! i then went into recovery mode “but then again, i remember seeing this river about 4 years ago and if my memory serves me correctly, it looked to be at about the same level as it is today”. john nodded and continued on his way.
