Photography is a cherished hobby of mine, primarily focusing on bird photography, though I often use my pets as models as well. My passion for photography was further cultivated during my time at Massey University, where I took several photography courses to build my confidence and skills behind the camera. While I do not consider myself a professional photographer, I occasionally capture some impressive shots.
Professionally, I have had the opportunity to apply my photography skills in various contexts. This includes photographing events, capturing moments for social media, and providing visual content for strategic documents and reports. Some of my photographs have been published on the covers of external documents and widely shared on social media channels.
This combination of personal passion and professional application allows me to create visually engaging content that enhances communications and showcases important stories and achievements.
I have always loved being out in nature and find New Zealand's native wildlife truly amazing. My photography, particularly of birds like the Tui, captures this passion. The images of the Tui are all unedited, taken with a Canon standard zoom lens on a Canon 550D.
My grandmother, a keen bird watcher, feeds the birds at her house every morning, providing the perfect opportunity to snap some shots. This experience not only deepened my appreciation for wildlife but also honed my skills in capturing natural moments with authenticity and clarity.
These images were taken when I was on the trapline I help maintain in Remutaka Forest Park, Wellington.
This is one of my favourite images due to its bright colours. This image was taken at Australia Zoo a few years ago.

Corrections Officer graduations.
Working for the Department of Corrections has given me the unique opportunity to become an honorary member of the dog team. I’ve collaborated extensively with our detector dog team, photographing events such as graduations and designing dog cards for community engagement.
This experience has allowed me to capture the dedication and hard work of our dogs and their handlers. Here are a few of the dogs we have at Corrections, along with some from the Police force. These photos highlight the bond between handlers and their dogs, showcasing the important roles they play in maintaining safety and security.
These kittens are part of a rehabilitation initiative at Arohata Upper Prison, in collaboration with the Kitten Inn. This program helps women in prison gain empathy and valuable life skills by raising kittens, often from just days old until they are ready for their FURever homes. The initiative not only provides a nurturing environment for the kittens but also fosters a sense of responsibility and care among the women involved.
