Waiheke Island Wine-Tasting Adventures

Waiheke Island Wine-Tasting Adventures

Beautiful Waiheke Island Having spent most of my childhood in Auckland, I clearly remember the excitement of getting on the ferry to Waiheke Island. Although it's only a short trip, I seem to remember it being an epic journey across oceans to the faraway island that...

Pauanui, Coromandel Peninsula

Pauanui, Coromandel Peninsula

Pauanui is one of those New Zealand towns that has absolutely nothing going on for most of the year. Then summer arrives, and BOOM, it's bursting at the seams as half the population of Auckland heads to the stunning little beach. Sitting on the east coast of the...

Moturiki Island, Mount Maunganui

Moturiki Island, Mount Maunganui

It's been far too long since I've taken my camera out. Life gets busy sometimes, and something's gotta give. Unfortunately photography is often that thing. I found a spare hour this weekend so I grabbed my gear and headed down to one of my favourite locations to...

Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo

Lake Taupo sits right in the centre of New Zealand's North Island. It is the largest lake in New Zealand with a perimeter of almost 200km. The town of Taupo at the lake's north-eastern shore on Tapuaeharuru Bay is a hub for the many outdoor adventure and tourist...

Mount Maunganui, New Zealand

Mount Maunganui (Mauao) In keeping with my resolution to have a second look around my hometown after this little experience, I grabbed my gear the other evening and went out to photograph a scene I've wanted to for some time, but haven't yet got around to.  Of course,...

Tauranga Bridge Marina

Tauranga Bridge Marina

This marina lies on the main route between my home and my work. I've driven past it a thousand times and I never really paid a lot of attention to it.  I'm sure many photographers can relate.  Sometimes we can be oblivious to the environment around us due to its...

August 2012 Desktop Wallpaper

As you can see from my recent posts, I have been unusually inactive here on the blog over the last few months.  This is mainly due to some big moves and changes for me.  After returning to New Zealand in November 2011 after 6 months traveling and photographing Africa...

São Paulo Favelas, Brazil

São Paulo Favelas, Brazil

São Paulo, Brazil's largest city, and the world's 7th with almost 20 million people, is also home to some of the largest slums in Latin America.  Brazil's favelas are everything you imagine an urban slum to be: overcrowded, unsanitary, and run by crime.  Of course,...
