Click to preview As I Wander: New Zealand's North Island photo book

New Zealand is an amazingly beautiful country. It has been the backdrop of films such as Lord of the Rings, the Last Samuri and the Xena and Hercules movies. According to the Maori this is Aotearoa, Land of the Long White Cloud. This 40 page book is a small selection of images highlighting the beauty of the North Island.

Join me on an armchair trip through this stunning scenery. Pick up your ticket and journey through geothermal parks, lush bush with ancient tree ferns and the wild West Coast beaches. This is not just a book, it is a journey. Come with me as I wander.


About the Author

Alex Whisman
pinepig Auckland, New Zealand
I moved to New Zealand to be with my wife in 2001 and have had fun capturing the unique beauty that is Aotearoa. We are both into our photography. I shoot as Pinepig Studio and she as Spiritsdance Studio, together we are Pinedance Studios. I enjoy shooting a variety of subjects and hope to bring as much as I can of this beautiful country to family, friends and strangers. My main topic are landscapes, but I also focus on plants and flowers, antiques, patterns, textures and anything that draws my attention. My camera of choice is a Pentax K10D, which I've enjoyed using. Take a virtual trip through the wonders of this land in one of my books. All are set to full preview.

I saw your comments in the forum so I had to check out your book. It makes me want to return to the southern hemisphere. One vote from me to you.

If you have time, look at my book in the family section.
