Unexpected bonus this January 2024, we went to visit the world’s biggest iceberg, an incredible 3,900 square kilometres of ice ploughing through the southern ocean at 30Nm per day.  These are a force of nature, incomprehensible the human scale!  I was working as a polar guide for EYOS expeditions guiding clients to remote spots, something I’ve done as a related work story to my professional photography and polar experience for a long time, that gave me the chance to see this behemoth up close. It’s a mind bending experience to see something like this.  The view goes on as far a ..read more

Frostfish massacre in Cook Strait

An unseasonably calm winter’s day took me well offshore exploring by boat into Cook Strait where I witnessed and recorded a wildlife feeding frenzy not often seen.  In the water, New Zealand fur seals (Arctocephalus forsteri) were diving to catch Frostfish (Lepidopus caudatus), a very long almost snake like fish, but their length required the seal to bring the fish to the surface in order the thrash and rip them apart, taking several minutes per fish. The splashing and commotion caused a large collection of Mollymawks (small albatrosses) to arrive and battle over any morsels flung from th ..read more

Cool office mural

We do a lot of large interior murals due to our very large file creation processes. This one stood out today, printed on Contra Vision film (perforated window film often seen on buses) and applied to a large boardroom glass wall. It looks so realistic that we wonder how many people might accidentally try to walk through it?  Original photo, Nelson Lakes National Park track, at: https://www.naturespic.com/newzealand/image.asp?id=25963 ..read more
