Everyone’s a photographer nowdays. We all carry a camera with us that packs a wonder of technology and we have apps that can make our shots look like the work of a professional.
For me … I want to create something that might be considered art.
I want to capture moments and create interesting scenes with angles, focus, light and colour.
Photography also allows me to take in the world. To enjoy the wonder of nature, architecture, people, places, scenes.
It helps me to try and see things in different ways and generally appreciate life.
I enjoy travelling and follow sevens rugby quite closely. So that’s been an opportunity to combine the passions.
I was involved in one of the first panoramic photography apps for the iPhone back in 2007 and continue to enjoy shooting panoramas.
It was fun experimenting with photo stitching

Then there’s combining panoramas and rugby …
I post most of the shots I take with my phone to my Instragram account.
Shooting what I see
My walks to the office from where I park takes be by the Tauranga Estuary, through memorial Park.
It makes for a very pleasant start to the day …
