"A FACE FOR RADIO" An image for the series of the same name.
A conceptional shoot for local radio station, with emphasis on hiding the face of the DJ
with old school recording tape.

I live at the beach, no really I do.
I pretend to surf, I love skateboarding and I’m quite into snow skiing, well a lot truth be told.
I adore top shelf, especially scotch whiskey and fine food, but who doesn't right.

I have quite an affinity with animals, and they too with me.

A quick history: I studied Visual Arts at Whitecliffe College of Art and Design, Auckland, New Zealand, with a Photography Major.
I assisted world renowned photographers from Shaun Pettigrew through to Simon Stock and many in between. I've worked from New York to Queenstown.
I was a graphic designer when I lived in Oz and on my return to NZ I gravitated back towards photography. I got a NYC style studio loft in the heart of Wellington, NZ.
Found I had a love for animals, so I got a dog, named him King Alfred. Robynne and I bought a house for that dog. Got engaged, had a child and then I pulled off a top tier professional goal.
That being accepted into Luerzers Archive Best 200 Photographers Worldwide. Next up a Cannes Lion.

Some adjectives of my working style are, Punchy, Bold & Direct. Images that can stop you in your tracks and have you asking "what the?" The style has a Strong use of Color, Shadow, in an Uncluttered Environment with Attitude. Often wrapped up in a touch of Humor.

My family : Robynne and adoring 5yr old son Lachlan.
There's a cat (Princess Penelope or PP Cat) and up until not so long ago we had a two Berenese Mountain Dogs (King Alfred and Ronnie Bear). They were both taken from us far to early in life and within a year of one another. Cancer. It still hurts, I love my boys,
