“the twenty-four elders will fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and will worship Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.” ~ Revelation 4:10-11
I am a native Kiwi born and raised in Otaki New Zealand.
I spent much of my early years roaming around the Te Urewera National Park in the central North Island of New Zealand and the Tararua ranges north of Wellington as a professional hunter and fur trapper. As a result as I grew older, wilderness and wildlife photography was a natural progression from my hunting background.
In July 2021 I moved to Northern Ireland with Rosie where we were married and set up a new home.
Now I use all the skills I have learned over the years to aid me in photographing UK birds.
My mission is to share what my creator Jesus Christ has created for us to enjoy and marvel over. The whole creation reflects His nature and His attributes.
I have always been fascinated by the beauty of nature and the wilderness. I began photography in my forties. Eventually I wanted to share these precious landscapes and wildlife with others.
I strive to excel at my craft. Because of this, I’m continually inspired by the gifts and talents of others in this field. I hope my work reflects this in every image I take. Furthermore, I wish to bring to the viewer not only beautiful photos but also the moods and emotions that are attached to them. It’s my passion to share my knowledge and adventures with others. Therefore helping fellow photographers discover all the potential they have.
What I Believe
The bond between photographers is a unique one. Accordingly, it seems to be long term in most cases. Those who share the love of the same gifts and talents seem to form close lasting friendships. Although it can bring out the best and worst in people. In the end, it’s simply up to us to choose the way we respond to others, their work and attitudes. Other people’s work inspires me by choice. Hence it never ceases to amaze me to see the gifts that other people possess. If you have a passion for photography you will never tire of the amazing world around you. Just look closer and shoot smaller.
