When I travel somewhere new, I like to do the least amount of research possible. Partly because I am in fact lazy, but also because I prefer getting tips off friends, locals, and sometimes even my barista.
I thought to myself, I could live here. In the middle of nowhere so far away from civilised society where the ocean meets the dense mountains. Where the water is crystal clear and blue where the birds can be heard and the stars seen. This is where I could live.
The fact that I visited New Zealand ten months ago is shocking. The fact that only now am I sharing my photos from my time there is alarming. Sometimes I do this thing where I work so hard on my client work that I forget that I have other images I need and want to edit. Finally however, I've managed to power through my files and release these into the wild (yay!).
I've always wanted to photograph/film something based off a song or album that particularly resonated with me. So the fact that I actually pulled this one out from my head and into the world makes me so deliriously happy.
