Welcome

 

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, browse the galleries & projects and let me know what you think!

Wow what a week!

A Morning with the Kingfishers

This morning at the beach I was alone.  Not another photographer in sight for almost all the time I was there.  One did pass by briefly and waved but he didn’t stop more than a few minutes.  The kingfishers were also enjoying the quiet.  I had five of them above me for most of the […]

Wellington Zoo

A few weeks ago now, we made a visit to Wellington Zoo.  I only just realised that I had not yet written up a blog to share the day’s images.  We didn’t walk around the whole zoo as I was more focused on certain areas and images that I wanted to capture.  It also gave […]

A Day at the Beach

Today was one of those stunning winter days that Wellington is so good at. Next to no wind and a perfect day to photograph kingfishers diving for their dinner. On arrival at the beach I found more photographers than kingfishers!  Someone forgot to send the memo to the birds and we all sat and waited […]
