I have always been super creative and photography gave me a way to express that. Everywhere I went, I did so with camera in hand so was blessed to gain full time employment as a photojournalist, a job that I worked hard at for ten fantastic years.
My time with the paper resulted in me winning NZ Community Newspaper Association Photographer of the Year six times. Something I am extremely proud of.
Weekends were spent creating my own works of art as well as wedding and portrait photography which once more set me on a winning path with several Kodak Gold awards as well as many medals from national photography salons.
These days I still work mostly in the commercial and sporting sector which takes me all over the country enjoying the best we have to offer. With past clients such as Listener Magazine, De Bretts Taupo, White Island Tours, Rotorua's Buried Village, Nova Energy as well as Getty Images (just to name a few) my commercial portfolio continues to grow.
The occasional wedding provides amazing creative opportunities which certainly is a privileged position. To be asked to capture the happiest day in a couple’s life is an honor in my eyes.
I have made a point of sharing my work in the past with an exhibitions of personal work in galleries throughout the North Island and have also featured in, D-Photo, Bride & Groom and Pulp magazines as well as the last 10 issues of PSNZs annual photographic books.
Winning awards for wedding photography involves a winning team and so I am always assisted by my wife, Mandy Hague. Mandy is an artist who has also won awards for her photography. We are more than happy answer any questions you may have, arrange appointments and take bookings.
You are certainly in good hands.
