Franz Josef Glacier and Okarito, New Zealand

Doing the Franz Josef guided heli-hike was one of the highlights of my New Zealand roadtrip. It was a once in a lifetime experience that is well worth the price in my view. Weather in the Glacier Country region can be temperamental at the best of times. They don't give the go-ahead for hiking on … Continue reading Franz Josef Glacier and Okarito, New Zealand

FUJI X AUS BATTLE ROYALE REPORT

Recently, a tournament of epic proportions took place in a top-secret location between a select handful of photographers in what would be the inaugural Fuji X Aus Battle Royale.
