A Hawke’s Bay Photographer
John has travelled widely throughout the world and has built up a stunning collection of landscape and street images evoking emotions and memories of this world we life in. He emigrated from the UK to New Zealand in 2014 having been wowed by our natural world and is having fun building a collection of Hawke’s Bay images to wash a little Hawke’s Bay dust off our souls. A range of prints and cards are available in shops and galleries in Hawke’s Bay as well as online and from his studio Nr. Puketapu.
Commercially John is enjoying community and business life photography documenting Hawke’s Bay events for Hawke’s Bay Tourism, The Art Deco Trust and local businesses. He also loves photographing couples and their family and friends on their wedding day where it’s not so much who they look like but who they all are and the relationships between them.
John published his first pictorial book this year, From Bud to Bottle - A Year in the Life of a Great Little Hawke’s Bay Winery - where he followed the life of a winery over a full year.
