I'm very easy going - I picked up that friendly nature from my Fijian Mum, who I also happen to share a birthday with. Even though I'm laid back, I am very serious about my work - a trait I picked up from my English Dad!
I'm incredibly blessed to have loving family around me - I'm a father of 4! Married for 16 years and counting, its always an honor to be there at the start of every wedding and witness a journey of love that is invariably challenging, but definitely fulfilling if steered right.
I am based in Fiji, but am able to shoot in Vanuatu, Samoa, and Tuvalu. A travel fee will be worked out depending on location.
I have been in business since 1992! I started my own graphic design studio while I was still in high school, and as part of the job, had to pick up a camera and shoot commercially for a number of years. Soon I progressed to Travel/Resort photography, but I kept away from weddings until I shot my first one in 2008. Since then, I have shot over 70 weddings as the main photographer.
Although demand for wedding photographers in Fiji was and still is high, I choose to limit the number of weddings I shot to 10-15 a year, to ensure that each one is as special to me as it is to you.
I like to capture your story, shooting a documentary style, with only minimal manipulation/posing.
I'm very flexible, but I do have a minimum of 2 hours coverage.
I can definitely Skype, as well as FaceTime or Facebook Message/Chat.
I'm pretty much self-taught. There were no classes available to me when I was growing up in Fiji. I have held my own workshops/classes to pass on knowledge.
