about I capture what you need to communicate. That split second of time that others don’t see. The essence of an event that you wish to remain in the minds of all who view it. The image that your brand wants a distracted world to pause upon. Growing up in the U.K., I first embarked on a career in automotive engineering that took me to Formula One as a race team mechanic. After being inspired by my brother’s travel images, I bought my first SLR camera in 2002 and began teaching myself to shoot. After moving to New Zealand in 2006 I put down the spanners in favour of a fulltime career behind the camera. Since then I’ve developed a reputation for producing high quality, professional images for corporate, editorial and advertising clients alike. While I love the challenge of shooting automotive and sport subjects, my real passion lies in working with people and creating portraits that glow with a natural warmth and capture a person’s true character. Over the years I’ve built a broad network of contacts, which allows me to resource both people and props from around the country. I enjoy meeting people and passing on my skills and knowledge. My professional affiliations include being vice president of the Advertising & Illustrative Photographers Association (AIPA) and a Qualified member of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers (NZIPP). New Zealand’s Motorsport Photographer of the year 2008 & 2011.
