The ability to escape into New Zealand’s world-renowned natural landscapes and culture with my camera is something I have always appreciated. Privileged in having access to such a diverse range of scenery and people, my passion for capturing and sharing these stunning experiences with others has only developed.
Being a self-taught free-lance photographer, I have acquired my skills through practice over a period of over 17 years, passion being my core motivator. My Photography reflects my personal interpretation of life, how I view both the world we live in and the people who live in it.
Nothing in life is perfect but sometimes it is these imperfections that make these things and people all the more beautiful and special. My photography is largely unedited and far from perfect but I believe in my philosophy to keep things real, to feel and enjoy capturing moments that may mean something special to someone. I hope you enjoy viewing the images as much as I do creating them.
The Calendar project
Raising $200,000 for the Children’s Cancer Research Group with a personal calendar project. Directing and creating the project from my home, I featured children with cancer in a fun and positive view within three calendars. This achieved providing informative information related to research and the challenges children and families face.

My passion for agriculture extends to everything in the outdoors. My love for horses has been life long, as has attending local and National Dog Trials. Spinal disease has seen me giving up many physical things I loved, such as tramping. Less physically demanding pastimes such as gardening, reading and story writing are all things I enjoy and make the time to do. Photography plays a significant part of my life and I enjoy capturing the beauty of New Zealand through scenery, animals and the interesting diversity surrounding us.
