2. Is to create an ongoing creative dialogue about New Zealand through learning tips, tricks and sharing photography via a DBS Website/App and DBS Social platforms
After an awesome 8 months of Goodness Hunting in Southeast Asia, The Goodness Hunters are curzing New Zealand for all of 2018, finding awesome people and awesome business doing "GOODNESS". Our job is to tell their stories with 18 years of photography and video experience.
On the back of Goodness Hunting, "Almost" every day we will be shooting the beauty of New Zealand via all kinds of transport. car, van, bus, motorbike, mountain bike, train, boat, Roller coaster, Gondola, Tram and even a horse. Using technology, Meta data, Geotagging and your money and power we will produce a year long library of photography, tips tricks and data.
From here together we start a new photographic dialog of New Zealand, that all visitors and residents can participate in by learning how to take their own pro (DBS) photos and Sharing via the (DBS) Website and Social platforms.
Together we produce 4 platforms that will feature beautiful landscapes that tourists and New Zealanders can capture while driving throughout Aotearoa.
- Published book
- Digital book/App
- Social media
Drive by Shootings will be a book full of captivating photography shot on common highways, scenic routes and the roads that lead to secret little gems. Accompanying each photograph will be camera type, lens type, camera settings, time, meta data, and GPS information. This allows anyone to see where and how each shot was taken then attempt their own Drive by Shooting. There is an art to making a beautiful photo and the information given is to help make taking that great photo more achievable.
The printed book could be distributed to stores around New Zealand such as Airport shops, museums, major book stores and on-line.
The app/digital book can be purchased online for use on smartphones and tablets. It could include endless possibilities, interactive capabilities, links to maps showing where images have been taken, other useful tourist information, links to others using the app, links to the Drive By Shooting website and social media platforms.
The Drive by shooting websites strongest asset is a gallery of curated photos taken form the DBS community, enthusiast and professional photographers. The gallery will feature their art and technical skills with an optional caption added by the artist. The most popular images could win a prize, a published book, for example.
The focus of the website is the photographs, the design will be simple and clean, the only color comes from the photos
All the social marketing benefits of sharing the images created by the DBS community around the social world. Weekly feeds of new photographs and news.
The initial images provided by us can be shared as we travel throughout Aotearoa OR NZ Tourism can wait until the end of our journey and receive them all at once. This would give them the control to release them when they are ready.
