I cannot imagine my life without a camera. Just as well I have a few!! I photograph with Nikon and Fuji, the latter mirrorless.
My ‘work’ is mainly live Event Photography, and Portraiture.
Event Photography ranges from Sports/Boxing to Music Festivals, and Concerts all the way through to Theatre, Dance and Classical Music. I love Portrait and Profile sittings, where I have the opportunity to be creative and show the ‘real’ you, or bring out the love and joy of a family. My style is pretty laid back, with a sense of humour. I work from my own studio or on location.
My ‘personal’ photography tends to be either experimental or travel photography. My aim is to either visit parts of New Zealand I am unfamiliar with or to discover a new country and culture each year! I am also currently working on some mixed media photographic works.
I have spent a good number of years as a Counsellor, mainly working with mental health and I believe this has helped me to be comfortable around people from every walk of life. My family, who I love dearly, are musicians and they led me into Music Photography and the opportunity to meet some seriously talented folk. In my ‘previous life’ in the UK, I worked at Director level in the City of London as a Fund Manager for one of the City Stockbrokers. I visited, and fell in love with, New Zealand and made it my home with my family in 2007.
Please take your time to browse the images in my website, and if you like what you see, give me a call - have a chat and see how we can work together on your project. Whilst I am based in Kerikeri, I do work around the country.
Usually when I photograph a show, parents and participants like to purchase images. These are loaded on my SALES website, and are generally password protected. Please see the below link for the SALES website.
