about me

HI! Thanks for taking a look at my work, I am a Portrait and Wedding Photographer based on the lovely Waiheke Island in Auckland harbour, New Zealand.

Born and raised in New Zealand, i picked up my first film camera & studied Photography in my teenage years, then i went on and trained in architectural design with a fine arts foundation at UNITEC. I worked in the design industry for over a decade doing commercial interior design for Auckland architects, exhibition & event design in London and Europe, and tv sets for TVNZ always incorporating my photography into projects.

In 2004 i refocused on my love of photography, studying Professional Photography at the London College of Printing.

To date clients have included London Design agencies, EMAP magazine group London, Brighton & Hove mag UK, The Natural Parent magazine NZ, Viva mag, NZ House & Garden, and people like you looking for a candid, contemporary approach to capturing your self, your wedding, your family, or business colleagues.

The basis of my work is 'people' of all ages and from all walks of life. I also enjoy shooting series, recently i did a diner waitress series in Texas, USA. I also love to take photos daily on my iphone using instagram account.

I like to shoot in a relaxed, candid way, to allow a story to unfold naturally. To be able to capture the small quiet moments in between the big moments, and i will direct some of the shoot when needed.

Its all about capturing YOUR unique story as an individual, a wedding couple or as a family to give you and generations to come beautiful images to take you back to those moments in a heartbeat.

I photograph Weddings exclusively on Waiheke Island and am available for a limited number of weddings per year so that i can provide you with the best service.
