I took the plunge about three years ago and began my documentary about my childhood, my Mum and the gypsy lifestyle that I grew up in. It also touches upon how it was to lose Mum and move over to the other side of the world to live with my Dad. Besides the documentary, I have worked for various places producing video and images. This includes for example; Latter in Norway and Downtown Tauranga, New Zealand Herald, Maverick Digital and Tairāwhiti Gisborne in New Zealand. Examples of work I have done for these companies and others have been editing work, photography work , camera operator jobs in commercials as well as camera operator jobs for interviews and full videography work where I have filmed, edited, directed and produced myself. 

I live for beautiful occasions where I am able to capture a moment in life. I do this while looking for interesting depth, lines and emotions in my camera lens. My style seeks to capture candid moments giving it a more natural look.

I have just moved back to Oslo (Norway) after living in New Zealand for three years, but I am open to travel if you are elsewhere.

Let’s chat about your ideas for a photography or videography session or an edit you need done – give me a call or send me an email, I’d love to discuss your idea.

  1. Following from Norway. Miss NZ, left due to Christchurch earthquake and a job opportunity that came along on the same day that spoke to us and said Go. Following to connect to NZ and remind myself what a great country it is, plus my wife’s dad grew up as a gypsey in England. Good luck, have fun and stay safe


    1. Hi Steve. Thank you for your comment. It is wonderful to hear about your story. I hope that Norway has been treating you as good as it has me. I also hope that you reconnect with NZ through my accounts and video blogg and wish you the best on your further adventure in Norway.
