Craig is a commercial photographer based in Rotorua, New Zealand. He has been shooting images for a diverse range of clients for nearly 20 years. He is a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Photography. His personal passion is for landscape and abstract nature images and he his working hard building a strong collection of fine art prints.
“For me it’s about creating the extraordinary from the ordinary - where people say "how did you see that in that"? Recently I’ve moved away from representative landscape images to ones that are more impressionist - where they reflect my feeling regarding the time and place. The outstanding Fujifilm electronic viewfinders have been instrumental in me achieving that.”
He is primarily self-taught (there were very few tertiary photography courses when he left school) although assisted some of New Zealand’s top corporate photographers while employed in Corporate Communications roles.
In his spare time he can be found exploring far flung corners of New Zealand in his campervan with camera in hand, or on 2 wheels cycle-touring even remoter back blocks of NZ.
“The Fujifilm X system is the perfect gear to accompany me on those journeys. The image quality from these little camera’s is astounding - and it’s nice not to have a sore back or neck at the end of the day”.
