It must be either Full Moon Madness, creative vision gone wild, or possibly a bit of both.  Whatever the actual case, this is one of the prettiest videos I’ve seen this year.


Mark Gee is a freelance photographer & digital visual effects artist based in Wellington, New Zealand.  After more than a decade in the film/visual effects arts, Mark has worked on many high profile & Oscar award-winning feature films.  His Filmography includes the following impressive array of creative credits:

Mark claims his love of surfing & the ocean is a big part of the inspiration for his photography, but judging from the response to this, his latest creation, Mark should spend even more time being a lunatic.  Only out for three days, it has already racked up over 290K views.


Wholly self-taught, Mark’s style of photography is influenced by his many years of experience in the feature film business.  With an eye for detail he strives to produce creative images of exceptional quality, whatever the subject.  Mark began to seriously focus on developing his photography skills over a decade ago.  Mark has continuously worked on improving his craft, thriving on setting the bar ever higher and challenging himself to do better every time he sets out to shoot.  He’s a perfectionist that pays attention to the details.


While his images portray a wide variety of subjects, especially surfing and water sports, in the past few years astrophotography seems to have captured Mark’s imagination and interest. I’m told Mark often ventures out to the darkest, most remote skies all around the country, enjoying the challenge of combining New Zealand’s striking landscapes with the ethereal beauty of the night sky in new, creative ways.


Mark’s passion for his craft is tangible in each and every image, and we expect to see many more of his creative projects as time passes.  What could be better than mixing Hobbits, a country as beautiful as New Zealand, and just the right touch of lunacy?
