About

My primary work is as a doctor. I divide my spare time between my wonderful family, life and creative passion for making images. I have successfully published 3 books of landscape photography of New Zealand. I am  interested in allowing my images to reflect my journey through life and how I see, find and interpret the subjects before me. We all take a different path and so have different stories to tell. For me my chosen medium is photography. Light, transitions,design and composition are important elements in my images.

Associateship

My inspiration for this came from my wife. I drew on my experience of landscape photography and understanding of light and form to create these series of low-key images with strokes of highlight whose lines flowed from one to the other. I started off by concentrating on the various shapes of the human form in anatomical poses. The emphasis being on form, symmetry or balance  and graphic shape rather than personality. The two interpretations were then fused together to create the portfolio.

The images can be seen in the Kudos part of my gallery
