Honoured to be working with the fabulous Royal New Zealand Ballet, a world I know well from my many years in performing arts management.  Whereas my world used to be performing arts management first and photography second, except for very special sojourn such as this, now it is photography first.  

Such a priviledge to be appointed Interim Executive Director and to work alongside Artistic Director, Patricia Barker, the great team and particularly the astroundingly talented dancers at the RNZB.  Of course the camera is never far from hand so watch this space.

Surrounded by family, friends and copious amounts of love and laughter, these two gorgous people tied the knot on top of the world!  They chose beautiful Queenstown, Aotearoa New Zealand to join hearts and families from both Aotearoa New Zealand and Sydney, Australia.  As the sun cast magnificent, oblique golden light on them they declared their love, long time friendship and commitment to each other.
