It’s been nearly two weeks before coming up for air. It’s taken most of that time to regroup, gain sleep, as well as a maintaining busy shoot schedule.
But boy, what an amazing week here in Christchurch, with the NZIPP Sony Iris Awards, NZIPP Canon Photoshow and conference, plus our ‘In Pursuit of Giants II’ movie premiere.
Being part of such a supportive community is quite humbling. The amount of volunteer hours that people give for the sake of their industry is quite incredible.
The depth of talent at both the awards and conference line up never ceases to amaze me. It is great to ‘fill your bucket’, and take inspiration especially when photographers tend to do our own thing and work in isolation.
