The Travel Bug

Mt Bromo, Indonesia

Since being infected by the travel bug in my native New Zealand, this appalling and incurable affliction has dragged me kicking and screaming to exotic places like Australia, Belize, Brunei, Cambodia, Canada, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, Egypt, Fiji, Guatemala, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, the Solomon Islands, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, Vanuatu and Vietnam.

Will my torment never end?

American Adventure

Niagara Falls

After moving from New Zealand to the United States in 1997, I've spent time in some of America's most interesting cities - San Diego, Washington DC, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, and seen the diversity of many of its states, like the tropical scenery of Hawaii, the desert landscapes of Arizona, Nevada and California, and the freezing depths of winter in Illinois.

I've also enjoyed many aspects of America's culture, and have tried my best to learn how to speak English in a way which can be understood!

Top Gun

Russian MiG-35 fighter plane

Over the years I've had press passes to photograph military and civilian aircraft around the world, including historic and modern warbirds, and even NASA equipment like the space shuttle.   This takes me to public airshows and also into military airbases and places most people never see, like the control towers at Edwards Air Force Base in the USA and the once top-secret Zhukovsky Airfield in Russia.

I've also visited many aircraft museums around the world.   Here you can find some of the most extraordinary aircraft in the world - the world's great historic aircraft, as well as experimental aircraft and monstrous failures.

Cool Critters


The world is full of beautiful or bizarre wildlife!   Whether they're birds, bugs, mammals, reptiles or even denizens of the underwater world, I love to photograph these remarkable fellow inhabitants of our planet in their natural habitats.   I've even been known to shoot fungi if they're interesting enough!

Jungles, deserts and coral reefs are exciting enough during the daytime, but at night a whole new parade of creatures comes out of hiding.   Many people think being in the ocean or the jungle in the darkness is terrifying, but it's my idea of night life!
