In years gone by, time lapse was always considered 'B-roll' and filler or secondary footage. In more recent times however, it’s become more popular with the range of motion gear lifting it to another level. We see it all the time now, on TV and online.
In 2016, one of my time-lapse movies was selected as a finalist in the New Zealand geographic Photographer of the Year. My time-lapse has also been showcased by Encyclopedia Britannica, seen on New Zealand's YESSHOP and Freeview channels. Some of my footage has been licensed to overseas advertising production companies,including marketing campaigns here in Wellington.

My footage is available for license through a simple agreement. Message me if you'd like to use any of the footage you see in the videos below, or on my Vimeo channel.
I'm also available for commercial time lapse work.

It’s a bit like looking into a giant ant farm.Read More

The locations include the petrified sand dunes at Cape Rienga in the far north to the lush rain forests on Stewart Island in the deep south. There’s also a few lighthouses and other places in between, namely the pristine lakes of Central Otago, the rugged West Coast and the stunning geology on the Wairarapa Coast.Read More
Wellington . . . on a good day
‘Wellington . . . on a good day’ is a collection of some of my favourite sequences.
