So as I mentioned in my previous post, photographing glowworms with @lakedistrictadventuresnz has to be the most difficult shoot of my career so far! To give you an idea, take a look at the second photo - the glowworms live on the canyon walls between the stream. There is literally nowhere to stand or place a tripod apart from a few tiny slippery ledges and the water is way too deep. Now imagine it being pitch black and climbing from a boat onto one of those tiny slippery ledges! It wasn’t easy, especially when you add rain to the mix! By wedging the boat up against the wall, we were able to extend the space and give the tripod a semi solid footing. While the crew in the boat held onto the walls to keep everything steady, I clung on and fired off a few 30-120 second exposures! After a few wet lens attempts we finally nailed a few shots! It’s a miracle I didn’t fall in! I’m super stoked with how it came out - I love the fact there’s a huge cobweb in there too, you don’t generally see that mixture in caves. This shoot had been on and off for a year or so and I was beginning to think it was impossible! I wasn’t giving up and I was determined to nail it! Bring on the next one! @hamiltonwaikato #nzmustdo #newzealand #mightywaikato #hamiltonwaikato #nz

Left swim daughter racing in pool for the rowing daughter competing at the lake .. FYI don’t let your kid swim or row. Still must say the hard yakka is worth it. What else would I rather be doing?? 🙄

@canoeracingnz Nationals Champs done and dusted for another year. Had some very challenging and rewarding racing, picked up a couple of team boat medals, had some good laughs with da boiz, caught up with some great people and topped off by Arawa Canoe Club winning overall club. Also great to see the sport evolving with @skysportnz covering the action and the competition growing 💪👏

Kayaking into glowworm infested waters... not a cave in sight! Stay tuned - over my next 3 posts I’ll be sharing some shots from a shoot with @lakedistrictadventuresnz and @hamiltonwaikato. This was quite possibly my most difficult shoot to date for a number of reasons! #nzmustdo #hamiltonwaikato #mightywaikato #newzealand #nz
