2018. Muriwai beach. I took this shot without even realising this rock pool was shaped like a fish. It had to be pointed out to me 🤣
Canon 5DIII, 17-40mm f/4L. Lee big stopper. 240sec exposure if I recall correctly.

Still one of my favourite shots.

The homies riseracrew recently dropped the visuals for ‘Focus On Me’ prod by lightskinjohn.824 co-produced by brandnshiraz video directed, shot & edited by the talented afilmbypedro out now on all streaming platforms.

This video was truely amazing to witness, to see the hood come together like that, shit was a real buzz and refreshing as fuck. Ranui holds a close place to my heart. Growing up out west and being involved with 833 records and the Weststeez albums in the mid 2000’s, I knew a handful of rappers from Ranui / West Aucks 15 + years ago, but at this shoot I hardly knew anyone. These kids were on 🔥 and really put 135 on the map, it def made me feel my age that’s for sure.
It’s good to know West Auckland is in safe hands 🔥🔥🔥

The first time I ever heard of ranuimarz was when Risera Crew were doing a performance at the Ihumātao reclamation festival March 2019, unfortunately I didn’t make it out to catch them but was lucky enough to see them 4 months later at the Ihumātao mass occupation. I was blown away by this kids performance, his confidence and energy. Hungry to be heard. He performed right after Dam Native. I remember in the crowd watching him were some heavy weights, Che’s dad Tigi was there, Hypa D, Andy from Dawn Raid, Poetik & Melodownz, just to name a few, shit was hella buzzy. After his performance I introduced myself and shot the bros portrait, he introduced me to his 2 brothers and thats when we clicked, we actually met way back in 2013 when he was just a youngin’ timdfilm and I were shooting a music video for the homie northcityrizzy feat spellspellspell we used his brother bryce_woebin’s apartment for the shoot, and who would’ve known that that was a young Ranuimarz in the making, sitting there watching us do our thing. Still blows my mind 🤯

Thanks for the connections brothers 🤜🏽🤛🏽 Life’s sure a buzz ✨⚡️✨

Muriwai! This is a phone snap edited in Snapseed that I grabbed when first visiting the place back in 2018. A lot going on in the sky on this day!

Ugggh I didn’t want to go out today. I was tired, and wanted to laze about on the couch but I knew the kids needed to get out of the house.

So I filled up my coffee cup, and ended up taking the kids to the Tui Glen Reserve, out in West Auckland. That playground / whole area is phenomenal for families.

I figured we could spend the morning out and about; and then laze about in the afternoon. Which is exactly what we did.

Do you have a favourite playground that you take your kids to?

Level Two means getting back to some of the work I love the most.
A visit to The Hunting Lodge as part of my research for a magazine feature on Wineries out West - late afternoon sunset segueing into an evening of fine dining.
Notebook and palate primed and ready.
Let’s do this!

Remember to take a moment to admire all the beautiful things that may be taken for granted everyday.

A beautiful view of Piha I captured when we stopped on the side of the road to take in and enjoy the view.

Often end up with grainy shots like this and I hesitate to post it but Milkyway chasing is about so much more than just the final picture. The thrill of chasing the composition, enjoying staring at the bright stars, running in and out of rain clouds which ALWAYS storm in when you have something lined up, trying to figure out how best to process it later on to portray what you saw and how it felt.. and most memorably the week long recovery after a long night out 😂. This was the last shot of the 'night', taken at 4.42am. This time of year the sky is nice and dark with the galactic core above horizon for extended periods of time but if you want to see it arching over the West Coast then be prepared for some odd hours! 💤

So stoked that we came across this #malaysiancafe out in #westauckland 🤩

We love #malaysianfood so after our day at Gibbs Farm we had a late lunch/early dinner at klca.fe. Peter ordered #meegoreng while I tried their #wantanmee 😋

With #wantan #mee aka #wontonnoodles you can have either the soup or the dry version. If it's a #malaysianrestaurant we will ALWAYS go for the dry version 🤤

It's so hard to find a good wantan #noodle in NZ or anywhere outside of Malaysia or Singapore really so it's always a treat to even come across a tasty one here 🤩

Thin springy #eggnoodles tossed in a delicious savoury sauce, thin slices of #charsiu #bbqpork, pickled green chillies and a little bowl of small #wontons so you still get soup on the side.. these are the hallmarks we always look out for 🤤 which is why I really enjoyed my #wontonnoodle from #klcafe 👍

Oh and there should always be some veggies in there too but it's really the noodles and the sauce that make the dish 😁

Our friends foodandfootprints visited Melaka, Malaysia where I was born and also home to the best wantan mee around 🥰 They even ate at our fave place too which you can see in their latest YouTube video 😍

If you're in Auckland, New Zealand tho head out west to get your Malaysian food fix and let us know what else is good on their menu please so we can try it next time too 😆🙏

What are you having for lunch today? 🙂

🏄 🌊 Tried my hand at some surf photography, this is one genre that is a lot harder than it looks but quite a lot of fun running around trying to find compositions. Used a vintage telephoto lense and I am blown away at how it compresses the background, the sky looks almost like a water painting. Thank you West Auckland beach sunsets for the CRAZY colours!
