about clive

I’m your friendly Dunedin photographer. I not only live and breathe photography. I teach it.

After a long career writing, directing and producing TV shows for the likes of TVNZ, TV3, Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel and Animal Planet as well as making commercial and educational videos, I decided to bring my storytelling skills to the single frame as a photographer.

I love bold images that tell rich stories, reveal character and capture unique moments. Based out of my well equipped studio in central Dunedin, I work with a wide range of clients. I specialise in commercial photography, events  and business portraits, but I also do family, graduation and wedding photography. When people walk into my studio I tell them to relax, they’re not here to work, I am. My pictures work even harder for you. 

I’ve had some wonderful teachers over the years, and I’m grateful to be able to encourage and guide emerging talent as a Photography tutor for Southern Institute of Technology. I can still be persuaded to make TV and video if the project appeals.
