Bikes and some Autumn Skiing

Brent Rude Rock Sunrise

I have had a bit of a resurgence on taking photos on the last month rather than video work so a few early morning sunrise missions as well as some sunset missions. Some of the photos are being held back for a few articles but check out some that didn’t find a home below:

My buddy Cody and I took advantage of the ANZAC day off and went to check out the mountains for a bit of a ski tour. Which is pretty unseasonable for April in New Zealand and it turned out to be unreal spring/autumn corn. Check some photos from the mission out below!

August Update

Its been a bit slow on the updates as I have been doing some different commercial work which I can’t post yet! In the meantime here are some shots from a few sunrise missions we have been on to snag some NZ powder goods. Mt Olympus aka the playground of the gods put it on for an epic powder day.

Bit of a test of the Peak Designs Capture Plate while enjoying the snow at Mt Olympus.

Checking out the recently revamped step up at the local bikes trails when they were finally dry enough to ride, I got the flashes out and took a couple of MTB shots. Was good to get some external lighting out as I haven’t shot that style of photo for a while.

June Photo Epic

Its time for another photo epic for the month, showing some of what we have been up to. We started off last month with a bit of a weather change and some early snow fall but in the subsequent weeks there was plenty of wind and no more snow so even with eh cool temps what had remained had become pretty crispy. So we dragged the bikes back out and headed up to check out the #mintlyndon track that everyone had been talking about and what a track it is. Check out some photos from the mission below:

Christchurch itself has had the gloomiest June on record with low fog and an epic amount of rain. So with the mission above being our only sunny ride this month it was countdown on until the ski fields started opening and more snow fell. It looks like Queenstown and the Kaikoura ranges have been getting more snow than Canterbury so far and a storm is just rolling in now. But we headed up to the Mt Lyford Opening day and it was a beauty. Check out the photos from that below:

 

Offcut Photos

A few photos that didn’t end up being used for anything, so we thought they should see the light of day. Check them out below:

McGazza Fest 2018

 

2 years ago we lost one of the greats of NZ mountain biking, and people from across the country and world made the trip down to Queenstown for the second Mcgazza Fest. It was a wild weekend with some epic events in Kellys name. The dream track session the went down on the Saturday avo was all time with some insane levels of riding being thrown out there! McGazza would have been stoked to see it! Check out the highlights below. And don’t forget to visit the Kelly McGarry Foundation to keep up to date with future events and how is legacy is continuing in NZ #mcgazzaforever
