Antarctica - behind the scenes

Here's a short behind the scenes clip from our recent expedition to Antarctica... 

I travelled down there with a crew of local legends from NZ! 

RJ McNeill and Nick Walker (behind the scenes), Thomas Haleta and Jason Nicholls (Stills mapping / Aerials), Mark Michel (Sound Rec), Geoff Ross (Underwater), Nick Flyvberg (Grip / Safety) and Simon Godsiff (Cinematography).

Enjoy.

Antarctica

The formidable Drake Passage and the Antarctic Peninsula have been my home for the past few weeks. It's hard to describe the experience... The immensity of the environment and the majestic nature of what my eyes were witnessing is hard to put into words. They seem meaningless and infinitesimal. One thing for sure is that this is an environment that humans feel totally out of place and out of context... and I like that.    

While you were sleeping...

The other night I went out and took a few photos while the rest of you were tucked up in bed. Sometimes I get so excited by the things that occur around us naturally, tiny water droplets suspended in the air, creating magical mist god rays from the street lights. Enjoy. 

+ Beijing Mystery +

Beijing, it's a place of contrasts and a unique beauty. Coming from the west it definitely is an interesting place to visit as many of the websites I frequently use to portray my work are not viewable, which makes life interesting. The people are amazing, such a rich culture with a vast and complicated history, the districts of 798 and Caochangdi provide some of the most incredible spaces I've ever seen to view art. The country is so huge! I'd like to ride my motorbike off into the mountains.
