My Story...

Photography has been a passion of mine from a young age and I spent quite a bit of time at my Grandparents house scrolling through all the old family albums. I got lost in the faces staring back at me and would wonder who they were and how they fitted into my family story. This is why I believe photographs should be printed and albums created, to tell your story, so your family can hold the precious memories created today, tomorrow and for many years to come.

The Qualifications and work stuff:

I have completed a Diploma in Photographic Imaging (UCOL). Worked and trained as a photographer for the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) & New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) and worked as a photographer for the Western Australian Newspapers Limited. I am also a member of The New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers (NZIPP).

You will find the studio in the beautiful country village of Pohangina and I feel very lucky to call New Zealand home.
