Talofa lava , Kia Ora, welcome to my photoblog!

With COVID-19, I am mostly ‘housebound’ or isolated with my family as is the rest of NZ as we move into lock down to collectively fight the dreaded virus. To help keep sane (some might think I am too late) I’ve created a list of things that I can do over the next month. One of these things is to start a photo blog, an opportunity to dig into my photo libraries to replay and share some of the action and events I’ve shot.  In this blog I've focused on some of the stuff I've captured  between Jan - March in the past 5 years.   

I thought it might be a nice break from COVID updates to replay the things we prefer to be doing as far as sport, action & events go. These are the photography areas that I mostly enjoy and specialise in, and like many other industries it has since come to a grinding halt with COVID-19. I’m unsure how often I’ll do this I am thinking perhaps weekly whilst in captivity - lets see. Like many other families right now I am juggling the educational needs of kids at home too.

Anyway, enjoy :) stay safe, be kind and let me know if there are any images you'd like to see ...
