Photography starts with a vision and an eye for the unusual; techniques can be learnt, but the best photographs are taken when emotions come into play

I'm totally passionate about the oceans, protecting the marine environment and photography; I aim to share my love of nature and New Zealand through these images

        

 

 

 

Above all, enjoy what you do; no great photograph was ever taken by someone who sees it as a chore

Whether you like traditional landscapes and portraits or prefer fantasy,

let my creative process guide you through these pages...
