Gold at the International Loupe Awards

Received some fantastic news this week.

One of the images I entered into the International Loupe Awards won a Gold Award.

This was my first time entering this competition and my first Gold in an international photography competition.

I almost didn’t enter this year but got a reminder and entered at the eleventh hour and just got my my entries in before the deadline.

2013 Calendar Pre-Order

2013 Ben Coope Photography Calendar Pre-order

 My first calendar was a huge success last year and completely sold out so I am releasing a 2013 Calendar a bit earlier with a new design and some of my best images from 2012.

Many of these images are from a photo trip to South Island, New Zealand earlier this year, it was such an amazing time living out of a camper van and having a different destination to explore each day, we visited so many beautiful landscapes in such a short period I am already planning a trip back to explore some new places and spend some more time at our favorites.

This new 2013 Calendar is ready for Pre-Order, and will be shipped early next week.

The Calendar is $20AUD with $5 domestic shipping and $10 worldwide shipping.

Check out the images below and buy yours with the ‘buy now’ link (quantity can be changed at check out).

Wilson Bay NZ

Recently I had a chance to go through my images from April’s NZ trip and found this one, I have had this image in the back of my head for awhile now and havent been able to get to it, so glad i found a few hours to go through the back log of images that i have taken so far this year.

When i shot this image I shot it with B&W conversion in mind, couldn’t even consider it in colour and I think it works perfectly, the B&W shows up the contrasts of the early morning light spilling over the mountains out of the frame to camera left and striking this hill side showing up all the texture of these amazing NZ mountains.

Hidden Canyon

An amazing little canyon I found in the Aspiring National Park in New Zealand, caught a glimpse of what looked like an interesting creek/gulley while driving so pulled over and after 5 minutes of walking through some LOTR style forest (everything was covered in a foot of moss and tangled branches) we found this amazing canyon system. Cant wait to go back here in summer at some point and go for a swim and explore further.
