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!
