“I start my day usually at 3 am when I’m travelling. I hire a car and drive down across the country along with my wife. At times there is a long wait through sun and rain to get a good shot. For instance, the willow tree at Wanaka had dozens of photographers also waiting to capture it. I like to capture landscapes without many people, so I usually have to wait for a long time for a clear area and good lighting,” he recollects. The photograph of six flock of well-grown woolly sheep atop a mountain, away from Queenstown, however, was unexpected. “While driving down, I saw the image and wanted to capture it. I quietly got close to the sheep, being careful not to drive them away, and then yelled so they would all look at me at the same time,” Sharad explains, walking us through the images printed on archival paper and ink, which can lastfor 100 years.
