I developed my passion for photography from a childhood hobby encouraged by my step dad. I studied, then worked as an assistant in Edinburgh before setting up as a freelance commercial photographer.
My wife brought me to the Kapiti Coast where I have re-established my commercial photography business and where we have been blessed with our two beautiful sons.
I am a visual thinker, I think mostly in pictures. When I look through a camera lens I see colour and light, my brain instantly recognises an image, knows a moment in the second that it happens.
A photograph is many things. It can hold a moment we would otherwise lose. It captures light before it moves. It can record an object, a colour, a structure. It can be both random and precise. Photography provides a scale of creativity and precision that I find immensely satisfying.
My versatility as a photographer requires me to wear many hats. Whether I am working to a commercial brief or developing a creative concept, shooting documentary style or with a studio set-up, I love the combination of spontaneity and technical skill my job demands from me.
Be it your special moment, your life work or a creative project you have in mind, I am available for both private and commercial commissions. Please feel free to call me, or email with your particular requirements and we can discuss details over coffee.
