June 2019 – Ski Touring

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

Momad V13 plus photos

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!

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!

December 2018

Can’t believe it is December, this year has been absolutely hectic with heaps of projects on the go. Including starting up a video project with Dylan McNiece one of NZs premiere Triathletes. Couple of shots below from a little photoshoot we did with him.

So keep an eye out for that content to drop.

Farmlands ERA Awards

Another project we completed was the Farmlands ERA awards video which they used for an environmental awards campaign. Not our usual affair but was a very interesting project. Check it out below

New Equipment

We have invested in some new kit as well with the Wiral Cam Cable cam which has opened up some pretty cool filming options especially paired with the new GoPro. We out to try and get through the learning curve and created a little vid for Instagram below for Loose Riders NZ

Photos

And here are a few photos from over the last few months that haven’t found a home.

Camp Spot Macauley Valley

As usual it has been a while since I have posted but the last few months have been hectic including the day job and trying to fit in as many adventures as I can around it while even trying to retain some family life as well.. Too many hobbies and not enough time.

Ski Season is almost over and slowly transitioning back into bikes but before that happened we tried to tick off a few skiing missions we had had planned for a while. One was to head up Mt Sibbald in behind Tekapo in NZ.

Starting the Tour

We four wheel drove up the Macauley valley and walked to our campsite then toured up and got some nice shaded wind-blown powder!

Cutting some turns

Amazing mission in some amazing country – and there are a couple more images below from some other miscellaneous missions around the Canterbury Club fields and Queenstown for your viewing pleasure

And finally just a little video testing out the GoPro Hero 7 – the hyper smooth function is amazing No more gimbal needed which cuts down on the gear I need to carry. Check out the video below , riding the new tracks at the Christchurch Adventure park.


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:
