Originally from the county of West Yorkshire in the UK, Simon moved to Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, with his Kiwi wife Mandy and son Daniel in May 2011. Since then he has been steadily building up a reputation for producing an exceptional calibre of professional commercial photography for clients of all sizes, locally and nationally.

A Lifelong Love of Photography

Simon's interest in photography began as a child with his parents' Polaroid and point-and-shoot film cameras. Upon leaving school he trained and followed a career path within the Civil Engineering sector for nigh on 20 years. However, behind the scenes, his love of photography remained, and upon immigrating to New Zealand in 2011, Simon took the plunge and retrained as a professional commercial photographer.

Commercial Photography & Events

These days, Simon shoots his photographic images using Canon DSLR camera equipment and utilises the latest software in a 'digital darkroom' to refine and get the most out of his imagery. He's a passionate believer in pushing his own photographic knowledge, development and skill level, to ensure the best possible images are delivered to his clients, on every project.

Simon is available to shoot all types of commercial imagery including photography for industrial and agricultural businesses, brands, products, services, architecture, people and places. He's also a specialist at capturing people and their activities at events, both large and small. Simon shoots alone or with multiple photographers, that can be arranged for larger events.

Hawke's Bay Photographer

When Simon's not working, he's out and about with his family enjoying the wonderful outdoor lifestyle Hawke's Bay is world-famous for. He's also an active member of the Hawke's Bay Photographic Society, which is affiliated with the Photographic Society of New Zealand. And everywhere he goes he's got a camera at hand, to capture all those special moments.
