We thought it was a fifteen minute walk from the car park. Nope.


It was at least an hour. I had all my gear with me and on the way I thought it was going to be cold as the clouds were around. On the mountain however, it was dang hot!. And the sun was on us hard. There were four of us. Lia was my model, and I love my Lia, she's is so cool. Jared was shooting with Olivia on the other side of the gully. We met a rock climbing instructor on the very spot she is sitting about 20 minutes earlier. He happened to be my daughters phys-ed teacher. His name was Simon. Small world huh.

    I'm a little bit envious of Marina. We flew to China earlier this year from New Zealand and she managed to sleep the entire trip. It was an eleven hour flight. That's just awesome. Model - Marina Voronova HMUA - Mickeys Mark Dress - House of Em Beaded Top - Galina Efremova

    A friend of mine said "Land of the long white cloud" when they saw this photo. What a fitting statement. Mikayla loves this pic, and that makes me happy. Model - Mikayla Rose

    Olivia and I asked the caretaker if he could being the horse closer to us in the hope we could get it in a photo with her. We were at a wildlife park called Staglands. He grabs a clump of grass and gives it to us. That's all it took and the horse came right up close. Right above the horse and Olivia was a skylight that diffused the light as if it was studio lighting. I was shooting with a Sony A7riii which makes it quite difficult to screw up the exposure but my timing was bang on catching the right movement by both models. As if they are communicating.
