When the NZ Consulate told us they were coming, we got out the whole team. We knew they would need videos and all kinds of photography. We even used a drone! This was a big event that should be celebrated and documented.
Spending two weeks with the Maoris was truly unforgettable. Seeing how proud they are of their culture taught me more than I ever expected. AND, I made some friends who can surely kick my ass. Check out the videos and some Maori portraits below.
I love work like this and jump at every chance I get. Check out my personal site to see more of this type of work. www.samdiephuis.com.
