Hi, my name is Andrew I'm a design director and photographer based in New Zealand. I specialise in environmental and travel photography. I have a strong background in design which heavily influences my work, I love graphic use of color, light, and composition. Over the past few years I have also been drawn to image processing techniques which I share with other photographers through social media. 

I enjoy collaborating on projects, so if you have something that requires a unique image, or set of images then feel free to send me an email. There is a full portfolio of images available for licensing.

This image has a great perspective and I love the simple collection of elements. I used my Nikon D3 and the 70-200mm f2.8 lens (no it wasn't attached to another bird) I managed to lean over a cliff edge to get this shot, it has a great effect - almost like I'm flying. I did some pretty simple processing on it, just enough to pull the colors out.

I really like these before/after postings. I’m very uneasy doing so much processing to photos, not being comfortable about judging what’s just over-processing instead of improving a photo. I can use a lot more exposure to what the possibilities are. Thanks for posting these.
