The other week I photographed a wedding for Aspiring Photography at Stoneridge Estate in Queenstown. Despite the ominous forecast the weather held out for Laura and Damien. The ceremony was held in the picturesque Stoneridge gardens followed by an epic heli trip up to ‘The Ledge’. Lake Wakatipu and the Southern Alps provided a stunning backdrop for photos. The reception was held back at Stoneridge where the celebrations continued. A fitting end to what one guest accurately described as a fairytale wedding. Thanks for an awesome day guys!
I recently returned from an epic 3 day mountain bike shoot in Queenstown where I joined four lucky winners (Mark, Matt, David and Cameron) of the Nutri Grain Boot Camp competition. The boys were flown to Queenstown, given Avanti bikes to ride (and keep!), put up in some pimp accommodation, shuttled to the best downhill MTB locations (by JT of Adventure Central) and given expert tips from Nathan Greenwood and ex world champion Scarlet Hagan!
A big thanks to everyone involved for making it such a sweet trip…

Autumn in Central Otago is a photographers dream. Vibrant Autumn colours cover the landscape and the weather is generally settled and mild. I headed to Skippers Canyon later than usual this year unsure if the infamous colours would still be there. As i sit here now the leaves are all but gone and I am stoked to have captured these photographs.
