Still Moving

The paradoxical relationship between movement, temporality and the still photographic image, which has existed since the invention of photography, is key to my practice.

My work in dance photography and the performing arts, which is often centred around movement, also have a key influence. 

The Moving Portrait

Currently I am developing the 'Moving Portrait', which explores the 'moving through' of a portrait, the portrait being more than the encapsulation of a personality in 1/200th of a second.  Encapsulated in this are ideas around the sitter having agency in both the process and end result.


Another stunning photo shoot with the amazing Kayla Page for the hero image of the Erupt Arts Festival Taupo, 8 - 18 May 2014. 

Kayla is a trained ballet and contemporary dancer and is also in Alias, the all female Hip Hop sister crew to ID Dance Crew. Kayla is a consummate professional with natural ability to connect in front of the camera.
