Sunset beers over Queenstown. End to another amazing shoot in this stunning part of the country.

So much fun shooting together with my partner and photographer Matt Crawford in breathtaking Queenstown the other week! We were so lucky with stunning weather, incredible landscapes and great talent. Here is one of the images from the shoot.

Dance is something I'm completely obsessed with and I'm always very excited when I get a chance to photograph it.  I'm fascinated by the expression and communication of emotions it can convey. Here are a few outtakes from a recent shoot.

I was recently approached by Oxfam and asked to document the effects of climate change as well as the destruction caused by cyclone Winston in Fiji, 8 months on from when the category five storm inflicted extensive damage on many of the islands. It was such an incredible and emotional journey. I was deeply touched by the stories I heard and the remarkable people I got to meet as well as their strength and positive attitude. I'm looking forward to sharing some of the images here soon.

Nothing like a squad of little photo assistants for moral support when shooting out in the field.

You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
Ansel Adams
