Although I am now using Digital quite a lot I still favour film as much. I lean towards Natural History and Abstracts.
I believe in letting the Landscape speak for itself and that it is important for us as Photographers to record everything we can for future generations.
Thank you for paying a visit to my Gallery.

Bio

Gary was born in Christchurch New Zealand.
After many years in the Music Field as a Jazz Vocalist Gary took up Photography in the 1970's, he is a foundation member of the Nature Photographers Society of New Zealand and holds an ANPSNZ.
Gary studied at the University of Canterbury and his work leans towards landscapes, flora and funa, rock formations and abstract themes.
He and his wife Carolyne, who is a photographer in her own right, still live in Christchurch after a number of years spent in North Canterbury. He shares his interests with his son Todd who is also a muscian, and his married daughters Carmen and Kate.
One of the family interests is the breeding of Burmese Cats of which there are four Queens.
Gary is also an Artist and draws with pencils.
He still favours film as much as digital and does not believe in altering the image too much - he would rather let the landscape speak for itself. He believes it is our job to record every thing we can for future generations and is deeply concerned by all that we are losing.
Gary has eleven beautiful grandchildren and three great grandchildren, a Blue Brindle Whippet dog called Keta and four dear little Chihauhau's.
Like a lot of others in Christchurch New Zealand Gary and Carolyne have lost their home in the series of Earthquakes that have been occuring since September, 2010 - they are now in the process of rebuilding just outside of Christchurch in Lincoln which is a small University township on the outskirts of Christchurch, close to the country and some new landscapes to capture.
We are now Living in our new home in Te Whariki Lincoln within 100 yards of the new waterways that are being established so are looking forward to getting out with the cameras.
