I am a photographer based in Hawke’s Bay | New Zealand. I am also an educator, mentor and judge to many photographic professionals around the world in the fields of ‘creative idea development’, ‘photography’, ‘lighting’ and ‘post production.
I am a fully ‘Accredited Professional’ recognised by the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP) within the fields of ‘Wedding’, ‘Portrait’ and ‘Commercial’ photography. The NZIPP has awarded me with the accolade of ‘Grand Master of Photography‘, plus the title of ‘New Zealand Professional Photographer of the Year‘ three times in 2011, 2014 and 2017. Aside from being recognised by New Zealand’s national photographic body, I also hold a degree in marketing and a degree in Visual Communication Design. These tools put me in great stead for understanding visual communication and how people relate to that communication. With a back ground in Graphic Design, as well as following a brief, I also have the abilities to add further creative direction if required.
