Ride with me to Glenorchy (Part 1 of 4)
I released this video over a year ago to Passport Members and I wanted to share it with everyone now. It shows just one of my random days… driving from Queenstown to Glenorchy on a moody, windy day to try to take some photos. There’s a lot of stream of consciousness and that sort of thing. Anyway, jump into my pickup truck with me and we’ll see where we end up!
Daily Photo – Chinese Wedding Photographs in Queenstown
Here's a little of local Queenstown, New Zealand color for you. This area has become Extremely Popular for Chinese tourists. I don't know the exact number, but it's in the hundreds of thousands, which is significant for a country of about four million people. Another thing I happen to notice a lot, perhaps because I'm a photographer, is a gaggle of Chinese wedding photographers with their couples. I don't know if you've been to a Chinese wedding reception, but they often run a slideshow of the lucky couple in love in exotic locations. It's all completely ridiculous, of course, but they've all bought into this silly fiction. Anyway, to scaffold that fiction, they are all over Queenstown and Arrowtown taking these sorts of photos. You can tell he's a real “artsy” photographer because he's wearing a hoodie.
