The weather has kind of been in limbo for the last month, with it being too wet to ride and an early snowfall with has melted off a bit. We still managed to get out and do some early ski touring with a few bites from ski sharks destroying a bit of ski bases. A good tune needed.
The rest of our work is still being held up waiting for publications so here is some b-roll shots from some ski tour missions while we still had enough snow. An first warmup of the legs into Broken River and the second from Mt Potts and the old defunct Erewhon Ski Field
This is going to be a short and sweet update as I am running low on energy this week. Here is a little shred-it I filmed for Loose Riders NZ on the Gopro Hero 7. Plus a little gallery of landscape shots from where I’ve been shooting for my next projects.
Keep an eye out for some new content to drop in the next couple of weeks – have been shooting a tonne for some magazine and other projects that I can’t release just yet. And got a few more exciting ones coming up after that!
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.
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:
Its been a month or so since we last posted but we have had a busy month and the weather is starting to change to winter here in NZ so the bike content will slow down for a bit.
Major project for the month was filming a new video for the Christchurch Adventure Park to showcase how much of an epic spot they have there!
Check it out below:
We also went and shot a pile of photos up there as my bike has been broken!
Check them out below:
Last but not least as I mentioned earlier in this post the weather is changing and winter is kicking in, so we ventured out for a look and got some powdery goodness. There is only one photo from the day as it was to good to stop but check it below:
Last Sunday Josh Clarke and I headed up to see if we could catch some of the last of the sunlight in Vic Park – most of which unfortunately faces the wrong way but check out some of the images we got below:
