I’m an award winning freelance photographer, videographer & graphic designer based in Hamilton, New Zealand. I’ve been a photographer for as long as I can remember and I’ve been involved or surrounded by the industry for just as long. I suppose my late father can be blamed for getting me into photography, he wasn’t one himself but he was the one responsible for giving me my first ever camera when I was still knee-high to a duck and I’ve had a camera in my hands ever since.
My passion for photography and my desire to work for myself allowed me to successfully run a photography business for half a decade out of my home town Christchurch before relocating to Cambridge to take up the position of staff photographer at New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing where I have been responsible for the photography, videography and graphic design requirements in the launch of the Love Racing brand and have worked for a year and a half before delving back into the world of freelancing.
Through my work I have seen amazing areas of the country and met and worked with incredibly talented people. I take pleasure in the days when the great outdoors can be my office and I am at ease in a studio environment.
Specialising particularly in horse racing, equestrian and sports photography. I shoot a diverse list of subjects including Portraiture, Architecture, Action Sports, Still life, Landscape and Conceptual – there’s nothing I haven’t shot. In the time that I have been practising photography, I have gone on to work for a diverse list of clients and covered a number of locally based events. Video production and editing is also a part of what I create. I hone my craft through a balance of commissioned and personal work.
In my spare time I will be out road tripping my big backyard in search of my next best photograph. The beauty and excitement of this country keeps me traveling and discovering new places as much as possible.
