I hope you enjoy viewing the images and video in the galleries here. With over thirty five years experience working in Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand and around the world as an award winning corporate, public relations, weddings, newspaper and sports photographer, I can shoot the images you need. Working fully digitally, I offer clients a skilled photographer with the ability and equipment to handle any assignment. Regardless of deadline, I can offer a fast turn around time on high quality video and images delivered to meet your needs. Images can be supplied digitally by DropBox, email, ftp, memory stick or as prints. If necessary, images can be edited on a laptop onsite and transmitted by cellphone or wireless network.
