10 Oct long and winding road + snow /rain / sun / hail
It was by best intentions that I was going to blog away while on assignment , but like all good laid plans that was put to bed early on day 1 ..
the assignment was to cover six international riders as the road from one side of the island to the other… in four days not a easy feat and going down some of the most scenic areas we have in New Zealand.
for me it was a job where I would shoot video and stills with the video being the number one Priorty , I usally steer away from doing both at the Same time but was luckly enough to have steve the driver/navigator/second shooter/coffee suppiler which made life alot easier and to be able to give me a good shot at doing both .
I had lots of gear as the aim for me was to try experiment with a few things like shooting with a 500mm on my c100 which worked really well , tracking shots of cyclist is always tough so we set up Canon 1d mark4 “camera cam ” on top of the car which produced some really nice unexpected footage
and then its converting motel rooads into editing and charging stations while on the road buy the time all battery’s are recharged and footage and picture a downloaded its time for food and sleep and the next 5am start
here are a few of the images from the trip and viedo clip to come in due course …
