About Us

Welcome to The Photograph.

After many years of wedding and portrait photography I’m still learning. I’ve had some amazing experiences learning from some of the great internationally acclaimed photographers like Jerry Ghionis, Yervant and Roberto valenzuela. It’s always an inspiring experience talking to some of these great photographers.

If I have some small nuggets of information I’d like to pass them on, and in my own small way help other people improve their own photography.

A couple of my favourite Ansel Adams quotes:-

“Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.”  Ansel Adams

“It is my intention to present – through the medium of photography – intuitive observations of the natural world which may have meaning to the spectators.” Ansel Adams

My Travel photos.

I had my Canon A1 film camera for many years, but Swapped my trusty film camera for a new digital camera in 2007. My prints and negs will probably now remain in the draw, but highlights from all my new digital ( non-commercial ) pictures will go up here.

This gallery site was created in 2007, when I first started taking digital pictures of the beautiful scenery of New Zealand ( a few other places and subjects have now been added ). As a student I was inspired by some of the great names in landscape photography and hopefully I have created a collection of photographs that can be displayed on this site and enjoyed by others ( but please don’t use the photos without contacting me first ).

BTW if you are interested you can see my wedding pictures here Paul Michael’s Wedding Photography , and my portraits here Studio9 portrait photography.

After recieving several requests to purchase limited edition prints from the pictures displayed on this site, I have decided to add a small number of images that can be purchased here. Please continue to send me your feedback, my details can be found on the Contact page, or you can use the Enquiry screen to get in touch.
