I am A New Zealander, based in Rotorua. A lot of my subjects I photograph, are photographed around Waikato/Rotorua and upper North Island.
I have been extremely lucky to be able to see some of our amazing wildlife up close and personal in the forest. We have so many interesting species in New Zealand and still so much to learn and understand.

My photographs have displayed in a number of publications, events and places, including front covers of books and magazines. Here is a brief list of some of the publications I’ve had the privilege to be featured in:
