When you step into the Paradise Valley’s beech forests it is very easy to see why NZ was chosen to film the Lord of the Rings movies.

It’s deep and green and the further in you go the quieter and more mystical it seems. This scene is only 50 or so metres from the edge of the forest yet I could have been worlds away from the bus and civilisation.

H2/P20/80mm f2.8

In the late 1970s I completed the 2 years of a 4 yr Professional Photography Cert at TAFE, but was defeated by the physics of lenses.
In 2004 I bought my first DSLR & now shoot full time with medium format digital and professional Canon DSLRs.
I provide tuition to small groups via photography workshops for small groups (max 5) and Photoshop PP classes, and conduct small group photography tours to Australian & (soon) NZ destinations.
