Hello and thanks for stopping by. After several months, it’s a pleasure to share a new range of images which I have been working on across the winter months, here in New Zealand.

Despite a lockdown and occasional hurdle to overcome, I’m thankful to have had many opportunities to continue to escape into the wild and pursue fleeting moments, as I know many of you out there are facing restrictions and hardship.

It’s out here, in the wild, that I am complete and able to truly find myself. The natural world continues to teach and feed my inspiration and curiosity. The winter is my favourite season, with its soft light, snow and atmospheric conditions. Some of the images reflect this exact aesthetic, whilst others showcase a variety of conditions all conducive to creativity.

A highlight for me was finally capturing an aerial image of the full moon rise above Mt Cook and Tasman, from the west coast. A very rare event to align, with the coasts notorious cloud, rain and wind. Another highlight was when I spent several nights in the remote fiords, where the essence of Fiordland was truly revealed in the wilderness.

In the current climate, I’m very thankful to still be a full-time landscape photographer and I want to thank all my booked workshop clients for your patience as we continue to wait for borders to open. I miss the camaraderie and social aspect of my workshops and I look forward to the day we can get out there again.

For now, I’ll be continuing work on my online video courses and with my photography I will be dedicating a few months working with the sea again. I look forward to hopefully interpreting the ocean and coasts of New Zealand in a new way.

For now, these new winter images can be viewed full size by clicking a thumbnail and scrolling using the arrows below. Alternatively, to view titles and captions, head to the new work gallery here. 

I hope some may resonate with you and as always, thank you for stopping by.
