I come from a family where as far back as I can remember there has always been a high importance placed on being creative. Crafts and hobbies, painting and writing were all things that were not only encouraged but indeed there was always a role model to follow.
When I first started playing with photography, I found that seeing a picture and capturing that image in the camera were not as easy as first thought – so I sought learning. The more I learned, the more I explored – I joined local camera clubs and the PSNZ and haven’t looked back.
Since that time I served on the committee of Hutt Camera Club for several years in the past, hosted two successful Central Regional Conventions for PSNZ (2009, 2014) and am currently serving as Councillor for Conventions (National & Regional) for the Photographic Society of New Zealand (PSNZ), after two years as Councillor for IT & Database.
Photography is more than a hobby for me now, it’s a passion, and I like to think that passion is transferred into my images!
