Moments in time: Event photography
You’ve spent months planning an important event and spent money delivering it, whether launching a company or product, or running a conference. I can help you record the event and tell the world, or just your clients, about it.
I’ll spend time with the organiser identifying the key speakers and moments that should be photographed (and those that shouldn’t be). Wide shots taken near the front or back of the venue will give a sense of place. Close-ups of speakers will be taken discretely using a fast telephoto lens usually without the disruption of flash. And photos of details that make your event special.
I use two DSLRs and a range of lenses to give flexibility and to provide an important backup in the unlikely event that something goes wrong. And I’ll deliver the images promptly to give to speakers, participants or the media while the memory of the event is still vivid
Prices: $800 (including GST) for an event in or around Wellington, with images provided via webalbum and/or memory stick at a resolution of your choosing (I suggest 2000 pixels along the long edge).
Please call me to discuss your requirements.
Moments of love: Weddings
Your wedding is one of the most important days in your life. You need a photographer who captures the special moments but doesn’t intrude on your special day.
I’ll spend time with the couple, the organiser and the celebrant to identify the key moments that should be photographed (and those that shouldn’t be). A balance between wide shots taken near the front of back of the venue will give a sense of place. Close-ups of speakers will be taken discretely using a fast telephoto lens without the disruption of flash. And photos of details that make your wedding special. I regularly get feedback from clients who hardly noticed my presence and were surprised that I still captured the feeling of the wedding.
My style is natural: light and airy and not over-processed. Documentary, but not clinical. No flash during the ceremony and function, and off-camera flash through diffusers for natural-looking formal photos. It's your wedding, so we will work together to record the memories the way you want them.
I use two DSLRs and a range of lenses to give flexibility and to provide an important backup in the unlikely event that something goes wrong. And I’ll deliver the images promptly so you can share with participants while the glow of your wedding is still vivid.
Prices: My base price for a wedding in or around Wellington is $1500 (including GST). This includes: meeting with the couple, celebrant and/or MC before the wedding (preferably on site); photos of wedding preparations; photos of the wedding ceremony; formal photos; and photos at the function (until 9pm). I provide photos via a webalbum (for social media or sharing), high resolution photos on a memory stick (for printing); and a complimentary A4 print in colour or black and white (pigment inks on fine art paper).
Please contact me for any special requests.
Moments in life: People
My portrait photography focuses on people in their environment.
Let my creative photography:
- showcase your company to your staff, your clients or the world.
- record personality through effective lighting and location.
My style is natural: light and airy but not over-processed. Documentary, but not clinical. Off-camera flash to soften harsh shadows in sunlight, to brighten up dull days or to put life into office lighting.
I use two DSLRs and a range of lenses to give flexibility and to provide an important backup in the unlikely event that something goes wrong. And I’ll deliver the images promptly.
Email me for pricing.
Moments in light: Fine art photography
- A photo as a birthday gift or to celebrate an occasion, or to grace the walls of your office or home. I can print a wide range of photographs on archival paper with archival inks to last a lifetime. In colour or black and white. Mounted, framed, or a bare print.
- Stock photography: I have a modest range of stock photos (but many, more than shown in this website!).

I’m happy to take commissions for specific images. Give me a call!
I can print photos in-house using a 9-ink Epson Surecolor P600 pigment printer up to sizes of 13 x 24 inches (329 x 610mm).
Black and white photos are usually printed on archival Epson Hot Natural or Cold Press Natural matt papers (depending on the texture required)
Colour photos are usually printed on Ilford Smooth Pearl Luster paper.
I don’t like the visual barrier of glass between the print and the viewer (even expensive low-reflection glass). I prefer to mount the prints onto MDF (sealed with Resene primer undercoat) with a black routered edge, using Scotch PMA adhesive film. Prints are finished with National Art Materials Crystal Clear protectant spray. However, I am happy to arrange for professional framing of images.
These photos will last for a generation with reasonable care.
