Crystal Brindle

Adventurist. Park Ranger. Photographer of mountain dreamscapes. Seeker of all things wonderful and wild.

Hi, I'm Crystal. I was born into a park ranger family, I studied to become one myself in school, and now I make my living in the New Zealand mountains working and caring for the landscape that inspires me. I endeavor to capture hidden beauty through photography that only comes from spending real time in a place. Our parks, our wilderness areas, our places tucked away and hard to reach - this natural heritage draws me and leaves me wanting more.

I seek out these difficult-to-approach places, listen to and watch the landscape, and set up my camera to capture it all. Things often don't go to plan, adventure is around every corner, and stories flow from the mishaps as well as the magic. Sometimes this craft appears polished, other times it is raw like the mountains. Regardless, this is my authentic attempt to pass on that which the land teaches.
