This is on a hill overlooking Queenstown. It is a North Korean Prison camp set made for a movie. It looks so real until you get up close and realise it is wood frame with a concrete wash to make it look like solid concrete walls. It was great fun to shoot and I was surprised to see who they had painted on the side. The top photo was shot with the IQ180, 645DF body and the 28mm F/2.8.
I have been amazed at the people on this workshop. They have come from all over the world to be here. One guy even has 4 Phase one backs and about 6 pro labs in the Philippines. Another guy has his own Phase kit and just bought along his RED Epic to capture some video, it is very cool to be mixing with all the participants. Great people all with the same passion. We are all scratching our heads and trying to work out how Phase are putting on this spread, the value for money is incredible. I have put on so much weight, 3 course meals every day and an open bar! Dangerous to the weak!!! Thats me!
