HI I am a B&W photographer who enjoys photographing people , landscapes & teaching people how to take & produce more emotive B&W images. I believe to produce a good B&W you need to capture the gesture, then be able to extract that from your image for the viewer to enjoy. B&W photography is the soul of photography it has an honesty I don’t think we see in Colour, but that is just me. I offer Workshops here in New Zealand on a unique high country sheep station, challenging photographic situations, great place.
I’m a New Zealand-born fashion photographer, also specialising in beauty. Im self-taught, and began shooting professionally in Australia in 1996 before moving to Europe in 2001 where I spent the following decade before moving to New York in 2011. Currently based in the East Village of Manhattan.
