With Emilie Ristevski
Why New Zealand is a Photographer's Dream:
The landscape is one of the most magical I have experienced yet. There are endless amounts of stop-the-car-moments — so many roads, mountain, lakes, valleys.
Car! New Zealand is definitely a destination to explore by car and the rest of the landscape by foot. It is the perfect place to rent a car or campervan for a road-trip.
Most out-of-your-comfort-zone moment:
It definitely involved driving our camper van through a blizzard on dangerous cliff-edged roads.
Camera of choice:
Canon 5D mark II
A meal from the trip that you want right now:
Fergburger in Queenstown. Hands down.
Best spot to watch the sunrise:
One of my favourite sunrise moments was waking up in the mountains at Lake Gunn (pictured above). The night before, we arrived at dark after driving through Milford Sound. We took the first road and pulled into the closest free camping spot - which happened to be Lake Gunn. With no idea of what we would wake up to in the morning, we arose to the ground covered in frost. The first thing we saw was these snow capped mountain peaks. And for those moments, we had the beautifully still lake all to ourselves.
