MOUNT RUAPEHU : AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

A view of Mount Ruapehu from the top of Mount Ngauruhoe in Taupo, New Zealand.

The mountain climb itself took about 4 and a half hours.  It was so steep and with loose rocks making our feet sink into the mountain like quicksand, we were all climbing on our hands and knees near the summit, however, the views at the top were more than worth the effort.

TUMBLE TIME : AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

This image was taken near the end of my trip around New Zealand.

In the beginning of the trip we asked where the best place was to do a skydive.  The response was unanimous.  Wanaka on the South Island.  After 6 weeks of travelling around the North and South Island, it was time to take the plunge.

Due to weather conditions, and having to cram in a few activities, we ended up doing […]

VFX BREAKDOWN : AVATAR (2009)

It was too late to include these Framestore breakdowns for Avatar in my 2010 showreel so I decided to stick together a bare-bones reel that shows the work that I did on the film.

SPOTTED : VIETNAM

I travelled around Vietnam with my first dslr camera, a Canon 550d.  Along with the 18-55mm kit lens and borrowing a 75-300mm zoom lens for one of the days, I explored the wonders of this incredible country.

This image was taken in the hill town of Sa Pa.  A trekking base surrounded by rice fields and one of the most scenic places I visited on my journey.
