Peter Kia Ora, I’m Peter, a photographer based in Christchurch, with a passion for travel and adventures. My work is about the stories and emotions, people and places. I try to capture that unique moment and then transfer emotions to people through the image.

I like to learn and meet new people, hear stories and discovering places. I spend most of the time enjoying the company of friends, reading and studying (I’m a self learner). I enjoy what I do and try to transfer that feeling to my work. My background as a photographer began time ago when I was studying computer science. Once I finished my degree, I decided to study photography and turn my passion for photography into my job along side with web development.
