Another image from the backpacker serious for TNZ, taken at Raglan, New Zealand.
In May I did a promotional shoot for TNZ (Tourism New Zealand), thanks to Emma at Canvass. The brief was to follow a Stray bus around the north island for a week and to show the backpackers having fun, whilst keeping the shots natural and realistic. The shoot was a lot harder than it sounds. I had to turn up on the bus unannounced and ask the backpackers if they were willing to take part and if they were happy to sign model releases. Thankfully the majority did and I was lucky to have a bus of great willing backpackers. Naturally the weather made it a lot harder, it poured down for half the trip and the trip got shortened by 2 days, which will hopefully take place in the not two distant future.
Now that the images have been chosen, I shall add a few images over the next few weeks. Overall it was a great assignment.
The attached images is from a stay over at the Maketu, a cultral retreat.
