Easing of COVID 19 restrictions to Level 2 in New Zealand provided an opportunity to shoot the final colours of the fall season along with the colours of sunset. McLaren Falls Park along the outskirts of Tauranga city is best known for its collection of a wide range of deciduous tress.
Shot from Matapihi during the blue hour at dusk, this shot presents a view of the Tauranga CBD along the Devonport Road.

A phenomenon which occurs everyday but only can be visualised in the mind and not seen with naked eyes. Thankfully we have cameras to capture these moments. Multiple shots worth 4 hours of shoot stacked together to represent the movement of stars with respect to the rotation of earth.

I offer outdoor portrait photography in natural environments and other locations suitable to the clients. Here are some example of the photoshoots which I have done over time.
Sandy required her photos to be taken in a natural environment which were required for the publication of her book and creating an online presence. This one and some other photos were taken at St. Kilda Beach and Nichols Creek Waterfall in Dunedin.
I was was fascinated with studio photography since I had my first experience with it. Studio photography allows to produce stunning effects with controlled lighting.

I've loved taking pictures since I took my first photography class in high school. And I'm inspired by the love I have for my country of residence - New Zealand. I have photographed many different subjects, scenes, and moments. There's a picture around every corner.
I am surrounded both by natural beauty and interesting people. I use my camera to document the world and then print images with a focus on the magic I find in daily life. My pictures tell my stories.
Through my prints and photo books, I invite you to bring bits of my stories into your life and home. New prints are released regularly, so check back often.
