I started with a camera as a hobby, and it very quickly progressed into a job working as a photojournalist in the media.
I saw a lot in that job, and it taught me a lot about storytelling. I've got an eye for moments that tell your story the best and when I sense one, my camera is clicking before I've even thought about it.
I've inherited photography from my grandfather. If you're from Central Otago you'll recognise my surname from "Gourley's Pharmacy" in Alexandra, where their photography business was based along with the pharmacy business. I've got several of Grandad's landscapes up in my office.
If you do me the honour of choosing me to photograph your wedding, your photos will tell the story of your love and the day. The laughter, the spray of champagne, the beating sunshine, cold beverages, and hugs from your favourite people. My photographs don't just look good, they feel good too.
