Inspired by Ridley Scott’s iconic 80’s film Blade Runner, Kate Sylvester’s autumn/winter 18 collection was superb to say the least. Amidst an LED wall to floor backdrop of coloured light strips the models emerged. Cleverly infused with textured repeat patterns, metallic weave and sheath knit fabrics, the collection exudes 80’s electro chic. And in Kate’s own […]


New Zealand Fashion Week 2017 – The Federation Show I was especially excited to shoot the Federation show ‘Gentle Savages’, especially having shot a fair bit of their previous collections for a local store here in Nelson. I knew roughly what I would be seeing, refined streetwear and casual stuffs with a dash dose of […]

Wild Opulence – styled shoot for Together Journal

The Wild Opulence shoot came together fairly quickly earlier this year and we were blessed to have new wedding style magazine, Together Journal, feature it in their magnificent Issue Four. Guided by shoot stylist, Samantha Gerard of Balencia Lane and with lush autumn florals and greenery from Karen Grey at Perfect Style we set about shooting […]

Outstanding In Their Field :P

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of Ashleigh & Lewis Field. And with the last golden light of Autumn the day was as warm and as beautiful as it was intended. Ashleigh also happened to be the third of our boarders who have gone on to find that special […]

A Dusk Bohemian

Without a doubt, one of my most favourite shoots, the dusk bohemian images are still going strong with multiple blog and print features and thousands of Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram shares too. It was a beautiful day here in Nelson, New Zealand and Rabbit Island forest & beach park was the perfect spot to get […]

Die Deutsche Hochzeit Von Karin Und Micha

Before we get stuck in, there’s just one thing you should know. Bevor wir anfangen, es gibt nur eine sache, die sie kenne sollten.   Karin & Micha are amazing people. So full of life and love and just a little bit of adventure. And maybe a bit of goofball. I’m not sure this is […]

Hints On A Happy Marriage

Earlier this year in January my grandparents celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary, no small feat these days! I happened to be in the North Island a few weeks previous shooting a wedding so I stopped in to see them on the way through. I thought I’d surprise them by just opening the door without knocking […]
