Kaikoura is a magical place on the east coast of New Zealands’ South Island, (‘kai’- food/meal, ‘koura’ – crayfish)

What more could a boy want, dynamic rocks, explosive wave action and snow capped mountains down to the sea.




I have spent several weeks in this area shooting from dawn to dusk, every day is pure magic, even on the worst day you can shoot

a spectacular scene, at the end of a storm you will get the most sensational light, visually devine.


The lyrics from Rogers and Hammerstein tune "You'll never walk alone" says it all:

"When you walk through a storm, Hold your head up high And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm Is a golden sky And the sweet silver song of the lark.




At the end of north bay you will find the remains of a Store house built buy Robert Fyffe.

"The fireplace and concrete step are all that remain of the Bonded Warehouse. The old wharf to the east of the chimney was the main port. Goods would only be released from the Bonded Warehouse when custom duty had been paid. The Bonded Warehouse was built around 1869"
