    from $160.00

    On a drive back from shooting Lake Tekapo, golden late afternoon light rays were hitting this gorgeous leaning pine tree 30 feet from the dirt track.
    When shooting this, I actually hand held a 20mm lens through the wires of the fence this tree’s structure was just so different and blended beautifully with the background It was uncanny to find one on its own to me it's a Xmas Tree.

  • Morning Light Arrow Town 01

    from $160.00

    Open Edition
    This was just a beautiful morning after arising at 5.30am and seeing the light just getting better and better before I took these shots. You couldn’t have been there on a better day and at a better time,perfect timing in my opinion from leaving Perth to being at this scene. This is how I imagined NZ to be, you can use this series of 3 shots to hang as a triptych with one larger one in the middle

  • Poles Apart

    from $85.00

    Open Edition
    I love the way the poles and lines frame this image and the tonal range is just stunning.
    In Māori legend, Taranaki is a mountain being that lived peacefully for many centuries in the centre of New Zealand's North Island with three other mountains, Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu.
    Nearby stood Mount Pihanga. Covered in a cloak of deep green forest she presented a stunning sight and all the mountain gods were in love with her.
    Taranaki dared to make advances to Pihanga and was reproached by Tongariro and a mighty battle ensued between them. The earth shook and the sky became dark as the mountains belched forth their anger.
    When the battle ended the lovely Pihanga stood close by Tongariro's side. Taranaki, wild with grief and jealously, angrily wrenched his roots from the ground and left the other mountains.
    Weeping, he plunged towards the setting sun, gouging out a deep wide trench. When he reached the sea he turned north and stumbled up the coast. As he slept that night the Pouakai Ranges snared and trapped Taranaki in the place he now rests.
    The next day a stream of clear water sprang from the side of Tongariro. It flowed down the deep scar Taranaki had left on his journey to the coast to form the Whanganui River. There are those who say that Taranaki is silently brooding and will one day try to return inland again to fight Tongariro. Quote from Wikipedia Mount Taranaki legend
    That makes the title "Poles Apart" even more apt and could explain from a photographers observations that when you photograph this mountain from a distance with longer lenses it always has a glow around the base of about 1/3rd like its getting up to go.
    I'll leave that with you to work out.

  • Three Billies

    from $1,400.00

    Edition #10
    Next available #2

    What a wonderful experience! I had set my camera up on the scene with gorgeous afternoon light and I was about to take a couple of shots of the hillside and trees. Then... out walked 3 Billy goats. Yes, three! The same number as the trees in the scene. The camera auto focus beeped as it locked on to the centre Billy and at that moment he looked right at me, as if he knew and the shot was taken. Only 2 frames were taken, only one had the Billie looking at me, I’ll never forget that day it was truly remarkable.
