Thanks for visiting my website, I hope you enjoy browsing through my galleries and viewing some of my favourite images.
As with most photographers, I have often been asked what is my favourite genre.
I really enjoy photographing people, spending time getting to know them and then finding that special look or expression, and young ones are particularly delightful with their innocent expressions.
Landscape photography is a completely different style, yet with some similarities. The thrill of seeing special light and composing a scene that captures the feeling of that location is always a challenge along with the need to simplify it, then bringing it to life with post processing.
Ian and I have have spent many months travelling in a campervan through USA and Europe, which has produced a multitude of opportunities to photograph the landscape, the people and the wildlife. We love meandering through the small towns, meeting the locals and finding out about their communities. During our travels I keep a daily blog including many photos,
We live on the shores of Lake Tarawera, a pristine beautiful lake surrounded by unspoilt native bush, thermal areas and an abundance of birdlife. This to me is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
I am a member and Past President of the Rotorua Camera Club and in 2012 I received a Fellowship Honours from the Photographic Society of New Zealand - FPSNZ and presently a member of their Honours Board.
Over the years I have received a number of photographic awards in National and International competitions.
In 2013 I had a book published featuring the images and story of a tui that nested beside our home, more details on the Publication Page including a link to an interview on Radio New Zealand.
I had a personal project of posting a daily image which I did of over 800 days on Blipfoto This proved to be a very valuable creative challenge and hopefully will continue on with it.
I am available for photography assignments, especially in the Rotorua area, including family and baby photos. All images on my website are for sale. I would love to hear from you, full details are on the Contact Page
