Auckland, New Zealand
Adrian is an experienced full-time professional photojournalist with an extensive background as an award-winning news and sports photographer working in senior staff positions on publications throughout New Zealand.
In 2004 he resigned his comfortable staff position and has since then worked as an independent photographer based in Auckland, with regular commissions from advertising agencies, companies, corporations, magazines, newspapers, central and local-government organisations, as well as taking on privately commissioned work and independent personal projects.
Adrian’s primary focus is telling real stories, about real people in real places; an approach that is becoming sought after by the commercial and corporate world where authenticity is increasingly valued in a contrived visual marketplace.
Adrian is a regular contributor of photography reviews in D-Photo magazine and recently for Pro Photographer magazine.
For 3 years Adrian was the Photojournalism course leader for Auckland University of Technology’s Communication post-graduate degree programme. As well, Adrian teaches, trains & mentors photographers, and develops & implements photographic management systems for individuals, media organisations and industry.
In 2012 he was commissioned to photograph for the book, The Power of Us, published by Random House NZ. Adrian photographed, over 50 New Zealanders who are making a difference through self-belief, commitment to excellence and the determination to succeed in New Zealand. Commissioned by entrepreneur, scientist and philanthropist Sir Ray Avery, it immediately went to three on the bestseller list before selling out its first print run within 3 weeks of launch & is now in its third reprint. All royalties from The Power of Us go to Medicine Mondiale, the international aid organisation dedicated to bringing ground-breaking medical science to Third World countries.
