I highly suggest you watch this video in fullscreen. And in HD.
This video is part of my Fringe Focus Landscape Prints Kickstarter project. Get yourself some great prints from the locations in this video!
I shot this video throughout the month of February 2012 in New Zealand. It’s a compilation of quick shots from my travels. Hikes, campsites, trails, rivers, mountains, glaciers, volcanoes, even an animal or two.
I did a lot of one-day hikes throughout the country, as well as several 3-4 day hikes. I carried all of my gear in an ultralight backpack, with a small titanium stove, and tons of other tiny pieces of gear. I ate straight peanut butter with my fingers, got bloody toes, and smelled generally terrible.
It was an exhausting and incredibly rewarding journey. I hope this quick video is inspirational to you, since it really captures the intensity and vastness of a region far away. I’m looking forward to exploring more places, and as an independent artist I’ll need all the help I can get.
