After 7 years working the 9-5 grind in a variety of finance and sales roles, a call for change rung in my ears. Taking the leap out of my secure working life to head down less predictable path has lead me on a journey that has challenged me more than I ever thought possible.
In early 2015 I left my job and packed my car with some surfboards, an airbed, and a camera hitting the road... travelling around New Zealand for four months on a journey of discovery and a venture into the unknown which led me to the Four Corners of NZ and my first creative project.
Thanks to social media my photographs and stories were shared, commented on, and written about. Before I knew it my journey had been documented by friends, family, brands and strangers from all around the world.. Leading me into a world of commercial photography and an opportunity to develop the series further with a journey though Mexico with Corona via my project; the Four Corners of Mexico and my second solo exhibition at the Allpress Studio in Auckland, NZ
This year (2017) I worked with Emirates Team New Zealand in Bermuda for the 35th America's Cup campaign as their team photographer and managed the teams daily storytelling via instagram. An experience I will never forget - I really can't believe what a journey the last few years have been and hopefully it will continue as I strive to develop and grow both personally and professionally.
What's next? I'm not really sure... and that I believe is a really good thing!
I will most probably be outdoors either surfing or travelling and no doubt taking photos.
Please get in touch - I'd love to hear from you.
