I am so grateful to have worked as a professional photographer for over 20 years. Nearly all that time has been spent working with athletes and a variety of world class brands including adidas, ASICS, Nike, Puma, Canterbury and Oakley. A large part of my career has been spent photographing the worlds most successful sporting team - the All Blacks. Working with both the NZRU as their official photographer and the All Blacks extensive range of sponsors/partners, I covered 12 All Black tours and 4 Rugby World Cups. I have also been fortunate to photograph numerous sporting events including the Olympics, Commonwealth Games, Champions League, America's Cup, and a variety of World Championships. That developed into commercial and advertising imagery for International brands such as adidas, Air New Zealand, HarperCollins and Telecom.
A highlights of my job is always having books published and I have been lucky enough to have dozens now on the shelves, including one which I was involved in both writing and photographing - Surfers. The second book is currently with the publishers and should be on the shelves in October!
I am now a mum to an amazing set of twins and it seemed the perfect time to travel less and instead focus on the amazing community we live in and the awesome landscape we are surrounded by. Being able to photograph and collaborate with athletes to portray them at their best is such a privilege.
