I am a Wildlife, Landscape and Nature photographer based in Herbertville, in the Tararua district, North Island, New Zealand.
I used to randomly take photos with my point and shoot, then I discovered the insect world, I found them fascinating and became hooked on photography.
I purchased my 1st DSLR in 2013 and the rest you could say, is history. My photography journey began, with me reading many online photography articles and watching a lot of photography youtube videos, which I still do today.
By far the best lessons and experience I gained, was by getting out there and "just doing it".
I spent many hours photographing birds, why birds? because they can be fast moving, especially the small birds.
They made me think on my feet, I had to be quick and have a steady hand. I experimented with the different camera settings and ISO and deleted more photos than I kept.
Wildlife, Landscapes & Nature photography, I just love it. Being out in nature, anytime of the year, whether I take a photo or not, makes perfect sense to me.
I think this quote by Steve McCurry sums me up, quite nicely.
” My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport”
You maybe be wondering what else I do, when I am not "Out There".
I am a dog trainer and behavourist and yes, I spend a good deal of my time outdoors, teaching dog owners, how to handle and train their dogs.
