My wife and I were scootering around the Island of Rarotonga when I noticed this beautiful lady holding onto a flower bush on the side of the road waiting for the clockwise bus. (Rarotonga has 2 buses running at the same time around the island as public transport, one going clockwise and one anticlockwise.) I…
The Turtle or the bag?
Green Turtles mistaking plastics for food..
Turtle Fever Rarotonga
Turtle Fever.. Years down the track when I’m old and gray I would kick myself if I didn’t say anything about what is happening here in Rarotonga in regards to the turtles and the Ava’avaroa passage.

What if “home” was where you are now?
Well its been almost 6 months living in our motor home exploring New Zealand.. and to be honest its been amazing. The most difficult part was making the commitment to do it, as there’s always reasons not to. New Zealand is probably one of the easiest country’s to explore, from the roads to free camping…
Part 1 of 2 – Inner roads It’s been a crazy couple of years, and in between emergency helicopter flights, A&E, surgeries, lockdowns, tests, scans, injections, tubes, drains, and sitting in hospital rooms watching people I found myself wondering what the term “road to recovery” really means.

Not sure if I’m a fisherman with a photography problem, or a photographer with a fishing problem..Taranaki turning on the charm.. actually there’s a story to this one. I hauled the fish up and it was a beauty, I handed my fishing rod to my mate and said ” hold, I’m just going to get…
Selfish can be good..
Talked to a lot of people who have been unwell lately and it got me thinking…..there’s so much pressure to be amazing for everyone else, whether it’s in the workplace, family or on social media. There’s constant pressure to try to keep everyone one else happy.Where I’m starting to think maybe we should be amazing…
