Artist Residency in Lochmara

There are three ways to arrive at Lochmara Lodge, you can walk in through the Queen Charlotte track, land on a helicopter or arrive by boat. I arrived by boat with one week to make some new photography work. I had some advice from a colleague not hold onto your original idea and to be open to reacting to the environment. I went for a walk into the hill behind the lodge and discovered bees collecting nectar on the flax flowers. I photographed them and I was there for ages. I was enjoying the challenge of getting focus with such a small depth of field with the added challenge flax flowers waving in the wind. I spent the rest of the week photographing bees.
