Events include covering the Greymouth Motorcycle Street Racing – both as the official onsite photographer for Health & Safety and as an event photographer capturing the riders in action, Gold Nugget Moto-Cross, West Coast A&P Shows, Coast Timber Buller Sports, Polar Challenge, Greymouth Street Sprints, Agfest. I particularly enjoy photographing events and enjoy the challenge of capturing and retelling the story through my photos.
The biggest and possibly the most important day of your life is the day you marry that one special person. I pride myself on being able to capture the moments of that day in a natural style. For me a good photograph evokes emotion when the light, timing and composition all come together capturing those fleeting moments shot in an unobtrusive documentary style. Get in touch if you would like to chat about your big day and see if we can work together to tell your story. Every wedding is bespoke and therefore I like to tailor my pricing and offerings to you.
If you require any stock imagery please contact me as I have a huge database covering the whole of the West Coast including landscape, hiking, biking and history both colour and black and white.
With a variety of remote beaches, rock stacks and rock pools, towering limestone cliffs, cascading waterfalls, lush green native forest, snow capped mountains, numerous lakes, rivers and creeks as well as an abundance of history – gold, coal and sawmilling with numerous relics left laying telling their story in the bush – the West Coast and the Grey District is a photographer’s paradise. I love the West Coast and the variety in landscape that is on offer and always have my camera with me no matter where I am going so if you’re looking for something in particular there is a good chance it is already in my database. I am always happy to go in search of that perfect photo for you though and we can arrange pricing for printed images backed with an aluminium backing making a welcome addition to any wall and a wonderful gift.
With a love of the outdoors and with so much variety in our backyard we are often out exploring the many wonders that make up the West Coast and are happy to share the best spots with our guests.
I am available for Photography Location Tours that can be tailor-made to your requirements ie tuition, landscape locations, development.
Rates $595.00 for one person (full day) or $795 for two people – includes a packed lunch and transport to/from locations. Maximum 2 people
How to use your SLR Camera Workshop
Do you own a Digital SLR but have no idea how to use it or what all those buttons do? If this sounds like you, you are not alone! This workshop is designed to teach you everything you need to know about using your DSLR camera.
