“It’s not just a Photo – It’s a Lifestyle Enhancement!”
Our Photography Galleries:
The largest province in the South Island, Canterbury is home to a variety of New Zealand landscapes, ranging from the farmlands of the north, to the majestic Aoraki-Mt Cook in the South, and a rugged coastline in the east
Running almost the full length of the South Island, the West Coast is long and narrow, with dense forests, sublime mountains, glaciers, and spectacular lakes for the discerning
Part of the larger Te Wahi Pounamu World Heritage Park, Fiordland is the single largest National Park in New Zealand. It’s crowning jewel, is found at Milford Sound, the only one of the 12 major fiords that can be fully accessed by road
Reverred by the Ngai Tahu people as a demi-god, Aoraki-Mt Cook is New Zealand’s highest mountain, and is also the centre piece of the National Park that bears the same name
A long narrow island nation, like New Zealand, and a land steeped in mystery and legend. These are the islands of Japan. Trying to find a blend of the old, the new, and the natural, of a rich culture
Deep in the heart of the lower South Island lies Otago. Gold, harsh winters, beef, and sheep. Tourism opportunities. Otago features some of the hottest, and the coldest climate extremes in New Zealand
At the top of the South Island lies the Tasman region. An area rich in natural abundance, and one the highest levels of annual sunshine in New Zealand
With a coastline over 15,000 km long, New Zealand has one of the longest in the world for the size of the country. From sandy beaches that are safe for swimming to inaccesible seacliffs, New Zealand’s coastline is incredibly diverse
Roughly every 12 hours the sun rises or sets on our country. If you can get yourself in the right place at the right time, and in the right conditions then a sunset (or sunrise) is almost magical.
With the Southern Alps, and other mountainous areas in New Zealand there is no shortage of spectacular alpine environs to photograph,in an ever changing spectacle
New Zealand is blessed with an abundant water supply thanks in part to a high annual rainfall, especially on the West Coast. All that water has to flow or be stored somewhere though
New Zealand’s wildlife is primarily birds, lizards, and aquatic life, with no native land mammals, except for two species of bat, so we’ve included domestic animals too
Anything to do with people and places. People doing things, places they’re going. Sometimes candid, sometimes planned and posed
We must thank our good friends at the Orana Wildlife Park in Christchurch for allowing us to photograph and sell photos of their African Wildlife. Meerkats, Giraffe, Emu, African Wild Dogs, Lions, Cheetahs, and more.
Man in his industry has made some incredible edifices and monuments to his ability. Anything to do with man-made structures features in this gallery. Buildings, bridges, and more
Somtimes a colour photograph is not enough. For those ocassions you need a black and white image, commonally referred to as Monochrome. Strong tones, and shades help define the photo and its subject
Located in the Central-East of the North Island these two areas overlap in many ways. With the Coromandel Peninsula being part of the Waikato, and my spiritual home of you will, its only fair that we display photography from around that area
Ah, the abstract. The art of saying everything – and nothing. The abstract is an image created as opposed to copied from the world around us. As such, it can be a departure from reality as most people would define it
Your Photographer & Guide
I am a keen outdoors type, and photographer, and have previously worked as a trekking guide in New Zealand’s deep-south. My driving passion is to bring the natural wonders of New Zealand’s landscapes (especially the South Island) to life for those less fortunate to have spent time in New Zealand’s outdoors.
My subject of choice is the mountains and coastlines that make up the more remote areas of New Zealand, with special emphasis on the South Island. I would also love to host you for one of our half or full day photography tours around Canterbury, or overnight and multi-day photography tours around the wider South Island. I’m sure you’ll agree that my previous guiding experience combined with my love of photography will make your experience all the more memorable!
I also have a full NZ driver’s licence with Passenger endorsement, allowing me to carry up to 12 people (including myself), along with a Small Passenger Transport Service Licence issued by the New Zealand Transport Authority, legally allowing me to operate the Photography Tours side of my business. I also hold a concession issued by the Department Of Conservation (DOC) for a number tracks around the South Island, further enhancing the tour packages that I’m able to offer my clients, along with an Adventure Mark reviewed Operations and Health and Safety Plan
As a self-taught photographer over the course of many years, and a member of the Photographic Society of New Zealand (PSNZ), I am conversant with a wide range of photographic techniques, and camera gear and can assist my clients to get the best out of their camera gear.
My family & I reside in the city of Christchurch, in New Zealand’s South Island.
