Inspiration around the world

A New Zealand winter isn’t really such an inspirational time for a photographer when there is a combination of the first day of school holidays, rain, sleet, hail and goodness what else outside while I hover next to the heater, work at my computer, listen to a business seminar and consider what the hell I’m suppose to do with a pork hock for dinner.

But to keep my spirits up i do love a new find, and VSCO Lightroom/Camera Raw Presets which have been around for awhile i’m sure, but something I’ve tried to avoid drooling over finally won today.

I’ve managed to keep my bank account in-tact…for today, but i sure was inspired by the blog full of images from people all over the world using their stuff.

All these images have a design concept of inspiration for me, the first step of a wall of inspiration of where i would take an idea and roll with it on a campaign.

….Design Campaign’s….i have the bug, i think about ideas constantly….I think its time to put some stuff down on paper and then on film.

Wairarapa Spectacular!

Winter Solstice was fairly obvious yesterday in New Zealand! Rain Rain Rain all over the country! and Darn it was cold! EXCEPT! for a very magical place in Carterton in the Wairarapa at Stonehenge Aotearoa where Winter Solstice is well celebrated. The rain and wind tried to make it over the Rimutaka Hills! And we sure were able to view some pretty amazing sights of sun trying its best to push through. Thankfully this means the days will be getting longer on this side of the world and i am very much looking forward to my fingers being a little less numb! Image
