In 2019 I was honoured to be awarded Associateship of the Photographic Society of New Zealand.



Application for this honour is the submission of a twelve image panel.   Successful Associate portfolios exhibit advanced skills in a range of areas, including camera use; composition; awareness and use of lighting; processing and presentation. Importantly, they exhibit artistic qualities.

The Architecture of Summer Flowers 

The images of this panel emerged as I explored a range of techniques, including focus stacking, the use of added light, and a touch of the creative composite as I carefully placed and arranged blooms; the choice of focal plane the key to revealing the natural architecture.  The result, a variety of blooms, both colourful and luminous; a nod to the work of the classical water colour botanic artists, but with a modern nuance.
