Through My Eyes

Television (Full Length) – 2007

This documentary turns the lens on acclaimed photographer Andris Apse. The Latvian war refugee later joined the Forest Service, where he was inspired by lensman John Johns and Fiordland; a chance break taking scenic shots for Air New Zealand empowered Apse to pursue his passion: wilderness photography. From his Okarito home and in the wild, Apse muses on the rugged demands of capturing an image and the "stubborn determination" of his craft. From Time to National Geographic, his photos have helped define Aotearoa as a theatre country of epic, elemental landscapes.

I want to try to compress that feeling — of a storm, or thunder and lightning — that you can’t possibly put into one frame, but I try to. How can I put all that emotion into one image?
– Andris Apse
