I have been a travel, documentary and landscape photographer for more than 30 years.
As an educator at Massey University, The Photo School and through my own workshops, I have really enjoyed helping others discover their affinity for photography.
I’ve travelled to and photographed more than 50 countries, and led groups on many photographic tours to remote areas of Cambodia, and around spectacular places in New Zealand.

I have also had the great privilege of being commissioned for documentary projects with charitable organisations, such as the Fred Hollows Foundation (Vanuatu) and Exceed (Cambodia, Sri Lanka & Myanmar). I’ve tried to use the power of documentary photography to communicate the life-changing work done by these social enterprises.

Where you'll be

Skippers Canyon is only 15km's from Queenstown center but it's like entering another world.
Skippers is part of Mount Aurum Recreation Reserve and saw much of Wakatipu’s 1860s gold fever, and offers dramatic views. It's a stunning deep river gorge, set amongst the glacial-carved valleys and peaks of Queenstown. It was also the location for the Ford of Bruinen, in the Lord of the Rings movie and 4x4 access only for most of the year.

Had a wonderful half day photography experience with Glen touring the stunning and breathtaking Skippers Canyon. Just the setting alone would have been worth it but I learned some new camera tips and tricks that I had not known before. Glen is a good teacher and a pleasure to spend the time with. I would do this again!
