How did you get your start in yachting as a photographer and what inspires you the most?
I started in New Zealand in 2003 back when we (NZ) had the Americas Cup. I had a chance to capture some footage of some superyachts that were in town. From there, I eventually moved to Europe. I went to art school so I view the superyachts I get to capture as a piece of art. I draw my inspiration from the light and the weather when I’m on a shoot.
How many years have you been a superyacht photographer?
I have been capturing Superyachts since 2003, got my first cover in 2007 and now have had over 200 plus.
What was your most exciting shoot and why?
That’s a hard one to answer. All have their excitements and challenges. ANN G stands out for me, it was in the fjords of Norway, which was a different and unknown location than most shoots I was use too. Chasing the yacht up the deep fjords in a chase boat and heli was pretty fun. I also had my dad with me as an assistant which made it extra special.
