Congratulations to my photog hero the incredible Mr. Ian Brodie on his career move!  He's the author of the Lord of the Rings Location Guidebooks, among others, and has been the acting Media & Communications Manager at Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata, New Zealand but is now moving on to be a full time author, photographer and tourism consultant in his own business.  

I was fortunate enough to have met Ian in New Zealand in 2010 and he's a heck of a nice guy, as well as the person whose work most inspired me to get serious about photography.  I wish him all the best in the future!  

Check out his beautiful work at Ian Brodie Photo.
