Freelance New Zealand photographer who works with lifestyle brands & people loving what they do, since 2007.


Paul is one of New Zealand’s established image makers and known for his beautifully shot sports and lifestyle photography, candid and emotional portraiture, and story telling.

Runners snaking through the mountains, people living life and enjoying the ‘now’ or those moments that tell a bigger picture- Paul connects.

Personal projects like Good People Run – extensive outdoor adventure travelling – photography for businesses– and a committed husband and father – his own work naturally feeds back into commissions for brands like Tourism New Zealand, Fitbit, Salomon, Nike, Lululemon, BUPA, New Balance and Asics.

Paul is also a fully insured drone pilot, and always looking for people to collaborate with on projects. Let’s talk.
