Through parenting my daughter from 2009 I learned to be inspired by her creative, unbounded thought processes. I learned to process like a child who was not afraid to toddle outside of the normal way of thinking. I found relief in stepping backwards and being able to release the ties I had shackled myself with via growing up, through photography. The joy that this initial step gave me, has led me to study various formats and philosophies around releasing that creative self and 'speaking with our muses'.My passion for ‘boundary-less' thinking, mixed with my fascination of the old masters is a catalyst for my love of deep, rich, moody imagery. I strive to create art that is very much controlled in detail but arrives from the furthermost edges of my imagination.I have been awarded the title of NZIPP New Zealand Professional Photographer of the Year three times. I am an NZIPP Grand Master (x2).I love to share my passion via teaching workshops mentoring on creative photography and lighting.
