I started my photography career as a photographers assistant.
At the age of 21 I traveled to London where I assisted some of the United Kingdoms leading advertising photographers. This was my education in the technical and business side of photography.
After three years I left the UK and began a new career crewing on yachts.
Twelve years sailing all over the planet's oceans on classic yachts instilled a real love and appreciation for the sea.
In 1999 I decided to bring these two career paths to their logical combination as a sailing photographer. I started my photography business in Auckland on contract to American media company Quokka Sports, who produced the official 2000 America's cup web site.
In 2004 I was hired as Emirates Team New Zealand's photographer and I have been lucky enough to be there to experience and capture the highs and lows of the best sailing team in the world ever since.
