Nicolas: “Yeah, my friends give me shit if I am at home for two weeks in a row, they think I am sick or something. Firstly I am lucky that I have a partner who is also keen to go on adventures, she is into videography so it’s a good combo (www.theworldisacircus.com). Secondly it isn’t so much as motivation as it is just a routine. It’s now not a question of “Will I do something this weekend?’ It’s a question of “Where next?” “Where are we going this weekend?” So it is very easy to have the motivation because I don’t actually need the motivation. It’s just routine, It becomes my comfort zone, in another way. So it’s no effort to pack my bag and go.
A few trips I took recently included an 8 hour drive down to Fjordland to chase the meteor shower.”
“Mueller Hut was another trip. It’s an easy walk to do in the summer, winter is much more limited. Pretty steep, a lot of snow so we needed to use crampons etc. The Forecast was meant to be really bad, so that was actually why we went because it meant there would be limited people there as well as a great experience and good training having to deal with the bad weather.
However after all that, the weather didn’t come so we managed to have a some really great images.”
It takes more planning and more time but when it all comes together with those bigger trips, it is totally worth it.”
“Weather is one thing, and then once I have the location I always need to check the sunrise and sunset to find the direction and time where the sun is going to be, and where it is going to hit the mountain.
