Milford Sound – The Superstar of New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park

Standing tall and majestic in New Zealand’s Fiordland National Park, the peaks that surround Milford Sound can capture light in truly magnificent ways, all through the year. Whether it’s the deep, misty haze that each morning can bring, or the final rays of sunlight on a spring afternoon, there’s something special about this iconic view that just keeps pulling me back to visit time and time again. They say the journey is often just as […]

Jucy Casa Plus 6 Berth 2016 Review New Zealand Lake Dunstan Paul Reiffer Photographer Road Trip

From 5 stars to a billion stars : Road-Tripping the Jucy way

Persuading me to leave a 5-star hotel and “rough it” in a Jucy campervan for a week or two while tearing around New Zealand’s south island is no mean feat, but just over a year ago now it was done – and with some great photography results to show for it. This year, based on that success, was the return. With a lot more clarity on our route, more flexibility in our approach and with Jucy […]

Phase One New Zealand PODAS Workshop Announced

With lots of exciting news coming up, I’m delighted to finally be able to announce a new (amazing!) option to my workshop line-up for next year. Working directly with the team at Phase One, not only will I be running a direct workshop on New Zealand’s south island, but in June 2016 we’ll also be offering a longer, enhanced, PODAS (“Phase One Digital Artist Series”) trip this winter! The PODAS workshops really are something else […]

The Glenorchy Willow Trees – Back Again for Winter!

Well, *I* was back for winter – I’m going to guess the willow trees themselves didn’t go anywhere since I was there last year! For those who remember my shots from last winter – “myst” and “the three witches“, you’ll recall that we were pretty much fog-bound for the window we had to shoot. This time, with the flexibility of our “Jucy Casa” home on wheels, I was determined to get a shot showing the true […]

“That Tree” Again – Lake Wanaka’s Lone Willow Revisited

“That tree” – said with admiration, love, or detest – it doesn’t matter, it’s what pretty much everyone living in or visiting Lake Wanaka will say at some point once a day! To be fair, this was the second time I’ve visited “that tree” in 12 months, and while unassuming and unimpressive in itself, the scene surrounding this lone willow tree out in the freshwater lake is nothing short of stunning. No wonder it’s helped bring […]

Myst – The willow trees of Glenorchy, New Zealand

The bitterness of the cold winter mist across Lake Wakatipu in Glenorchy is the strongest memory I have of taking this photograph. Granted, it’s turned out better than I could have hoped for given my initial trip to these famous willow trees the night before – but wow, the weather really made me work for it. “Myst” – print available to buy now The shot above, “myst” was actually taken around 7:30am, just before sunrise, and […]
