I bought a DSLR in Nov '07 and have been having fun taking photos since.

I mainly do landscapes as that's the genre that I really love. While I appreciate the skill of other types of photography, they don't give me that WOW factor that landscapes do.

    "Can't really add much more than the others have written.

    I find Chris's work to be of the highest standard on Flickr, not one shot have I seen in his stream that is not inspirational. His use of shutter speed, composition and lighting are exceptional. Nice work fella!

    Not too sure of his sense of humour though LOL"

    "There's only a handful of excellent photographers on Flickr who are also generous and kind to us mere mortals - Chris is one of them. "The Brat Pack from Down South" are such awesome artists and you guys have really inspired me to go out there and learn more about my camera, my world and myself.

    Chris, your landscapes are stunning. I've learned so much from you. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. You're a babe! :)"

    "This testimonial has been a long time coming!!, Chris’s work has really inspired me and he captures New Zealand in such a classy style. I have learnt a lot from his pictures and always enjoy Chris's sense of humor and comments.
    There’s no better place to stop and take in the art of quality landscape photography or whatever Chris decides to capture. I've even dragged him out on a few photo trips to see if I can grab his secrets :-). Cheers Chris always a joy to see your work!"

    "Chris is by far one of the best landscape photographers I have seen on flickr, I don't know how he does it, but every photo is a true gem, and makes me green with envy (so I hope he's proud!). I only wish I could have captured NZ as well as he does during my short time there, but he inspires me to branch out and learn new landscape photography skills.
    Big thanks to you for all your help and wonderful images Chris, I always look forward to the next upload!"

    "Chris is an amazing reason why everyone should join Flickr! Besides the fact that his eye for seeing the beauty in the world in bar-none, he always takes the time to stop by , take a look and comment on your work! He has a great sense of humor and takes a genuine intrest in your photos!

    I think that anyone who sees his work, agrees that Aukland NZ is one of the most beautiful places on earth! Thanks Chris for sharing!"
