Full time landscape photographer, based out of the mountainside town of Te Anau, in the South Island of New Zealand. My passion is for wilderness and creating unique, evocative images that display the raw and often imposing beauty of nature. 

What is in your camera bag?

Sony a7R III

Sony 16-35mm f/2.8

Sony 100-400mm with 2x extender 

What is your go to in your Alpha kit and why?

My go to set-up is my a7R III with 16-35mm f/2.8 G Master. The in-built stabilisation, huge dynamic range and resolution of the camera along with one of the sharpest wide-angle zooms ever made, this combo is just about one of the best you can have as a landscape photographer.

Most memorable moment shooting with Alpha?

The first time shooting with the original a7R back in 2014 and being blown away with the image quality. It was evident that this was the future of photography and its been an enjoyable ride ever since.
