About 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.
