I am a Waikato based New Zealand Photographer living in Hamilton, who loves the idea of being a storyteller through images, whether it is on a personal level or on a professional level. I enjoy photography in many different genres including, Landscape, Black and White, Long Exposure and Macro, to name a few.
I have completed and gained my Diploma in Digital Photography through Southern Institute of Technology (SIT), where I spent 2 years studying multiple techniques, gaining knowledge, experience and insight so that I can run my own photography business. You can find my SIT final portfolio on my Portfolio page above.
So where do I want photography to take me? At this stage I would like to further work and develop my photography interests in product and marketing photography…but I also want to see where photography takes me and how it will evolve. Thankfully with photography I don’t have to be confined to just one particular area and while I have a preference towards some areas more than others, I want to be free to explore all facets of this fine art.
If you are interested in purchasing any of my images, please go to my Prints To Buy page where you can find a selection of images with print, size, framing and price options included. You can also visit my shop on Facebook to see examples of what can be purchased and I can answer any questions that you may have.
Please feel free to email me on my Contact page, if you have any questions or want to order a print or alternatively you can catch up with me on any one of the social media links shown on my website, if you would like to talk about possible photography work that you are needing done.
…Thank you for visiting! Taron.

THE MONO AWARDS 2020
I was highly commended in the 'People' category for my portrait image of my son practising his karate techniques...getting ready for his next belt grading.
I was also highly commended in the 'Places' category for my shot image of the Waihi Beach cliffs in Hawera, along the west coast of New Zealand.
What's so awesome about seeing all the talent, both here and in Australia is being excepted alongside all of these talented photographers.
