I am an Upper Hutt based recreational photographer. My primary focus is on Nature & Bird photography but as you will see from my blog posts, I will give almost anything a go.

This site is the home of my photo blog – which I’ve been posting to since April 2010, and the hub of all my photographic activities.  It has gone through a few design changes over the years and with each change I like to think I am showing a bit more of my creativity.

Stop a while, subscribe to the blog, read the posts, browse the collections and let me know what you think!

NEW - Framed Prints

I have partnered with Edges Art + Framing to give you the opportunity to order framed prints direct from this site.  You choose your frame, you are in control.

I will be adding more images to over the next few months, so check back often.  Or alternatively if there is a specific image you would like then contact me and I will add it for you.

COVID-19 Lockdown

Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, there will be no new images posted to my blog, unless they are from my back yard.  I will be sifting through my archives to find hidden treasures and posting daily on both Instagram and Facebook.

If there is something you see that you would like as a print, let me know and I will add it to the shop page, allowing you to purchase the print alone or a framed print with your own frame selection, delivered to your door.

Take care and stay safe everyone!

The Mighty Pukeko

Lately I have been spending time in a local waterway where the white heron is often found. I have become fascinated with pukeko instead.  The sun brings out their colours beautifully and I have come home with so many interesting images that this post will have nothing else. Very little words but lots of pukeko […]

Zealandia Opens at Level 2

Finally we get back to Alert Level 2 and Zealandia have a couple of member only days.  I didn’t need to be asked twice, I was on my way there with a couple of fellow photogs who were just as keen to get back into the bush with the birds.  The cobwebs have been dusted […]
