Combining a lifelong passion for photography with fifteen years of business experience, I provide a professional photography service that is tailored to your needs to make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible.
For any photographic assignment, commercial or personal, my photographic style is relaxed, natural and fun. For portrait photography, I prefer to photograph people in an environment which makes them feel happy and at ease and which adds meaning to the photograph, whether it be the beach, the bach or the back garden. I make people feel comfortable and in return capture their genuine expressions through the lens. I get particular enjoyment through coming up with creative ideas to get children in the mood for being snapped.
Originally from the UK, I moved to New Zealand in 2006 and live in Auckland's best kept secret, Laingholm. Alongside my portrait and commercial work, I have developed an addiction to the fabulous New Zealand landscape, as you will be able to see from my galleries.
Enjoy looking round the website, and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or want to find out more about inviting me and my camera into your business or your life. I’d love the opportunity!

“To me, photography is an art of observation.
It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place...I've found
it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
