Auckland - photographers

"Sat under the scorching Spanish sunshine whilst sipping an ice-cold beer, I took a moment to reflect on my situation; here I was on the other side of the world, visiting places others could only dream of. Yet I was, on a paid assignment, staying in boutique hotels and photographing the most engaging locals you could ever wish to meet. This really could be one of the best jobs in the world.

It’s not the first time I’ve considered how fortunate I am to have a job that I love - and I’m sure it won’t be the last. In this new world where we no longer take anything for granted, I don’t know how long it will last, but while it does, I’m mindful that there is a responsibility to give each shoot my all and ultimately to deliver the best photographs I can."
