Breathe - What matters only matters if you let it.
With a fresh South-West wind and around 140 yachts at the start line, photographing the start of the Coastal Classic was full of action and I couldn't think of a better way to kick off the long weekend.

Christian Hunt is an expert in SOE and and during the build of his website www.bespokeseo.co.nz he decided that it would be beneficial to personalize his online presence by getting some head-shots done. The brief was to look friendly and approachable, and incorporate plenty of blue in the images. We went out around Mission bay on a very crisp winters morning with not a cloud in the sky and got to work.
Here are some of the results...
Its cosy in winter and cool in summer, it has a lovely indoor-outdoor flow with a fantastic backyard and....... it floats!!!
My partner and I live on our yacht in Auckland, it serves us well as our home, my office and our holiday home. We have power and unlimited internet plus all the comforts of home but on a very little scale.
.......we can take our home and office away on holiday.......
Working on the yacht is very easy and comfortable. It has made my processing and editing time much more efficient. Instead of walking to another level to make a snack or cup of tea it's only 4 steps to the kitchen. It's a great space to work and I love the gentle swaying movements the boat makes when the wind picks up.
We moved onboard in October 2015 and now that we have experienced a Summer and Winter we are not planning on moving back on land anytime soon - even though I often take up most of the boat when preparing for shoots.
