My Liability Insurance Cover

Being a professional photographer it’s prudent of me to cover my liability in the unlikely occurrence that something should go wrong during a job. I have a Broadform Public Liability insurance policy up to $2,000,000 for all work undertaken in New Zealand. I also hold a liability insurance policy for up to $1,000,000 cover when operating my RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems/drone) Copies of these certificates can be supplied – please contact me if… Read more »

Sit Down with Philip Bloom

In the past few years as I have progressed into the video industry, I’ve been an avid follower of Philips work and it’s simply ground breaking. It’s easy to see why CNN recently booked him to shoot their documentary series The… Read more »

2014 – Year in Review

Updating a blog. It’s one of those things that is always sitting on my to-do list. But truth be told, it always gets pushed down the list by more pressing tasks, such as work for clients & more recently – spending time with my daughter! So while I had good intentions to update this monthly, or even every few months, this hasn’t been done for some time now! So without further adieu here is the highlights from… Read more »

Making Great & Easy Videos on your iPhone with Replay

I’ve had a few emails lately asking what program I use to make my videos I post on my YouTube channel. For any commercial projects on there, I obviously use my Canon 5dmk3 + Final Cut Pro X. However, when it comes to my own personal videos, behind the scene videos, where I just want to tell a story, having a smartphone in your pocket makes life so much easier. I spent a… Read more »

Nokia 1020 – Photographer’s Thoughts & Review

For the past 3 months I have been reviewing & playing with the Nokia 1020 for Nokia NZ & Telecom. Being a lover of all things Mac, it was always going to be a hard ask to impress me. The Nokia 1020 certainly did that, and some. While the phone comes into a smartphone category, I think it would be better suited as a smartcamera! The 41MP camera surely is something. Having full control of… Read more »

Barbie Camera Challenge with Philip Bloom

English filmmaker Philip Bloom was recently put to the challenge to produce a short video for DigitalRev TV. They regularly get pro photographers on the show, give them the worst cameras in the world and see what magic they can work.
