Kia ora - Welcome to Andy Thompson Photography NZ. My name is Andy Thompson, and I love to photograph people in action, families, individuals, group, southern landscapes and sports. My photography is about capturing natural moments.
I am an outdoor professional (started in 1988) teaching, guiding and instructing in a range of New Zealand and world locations; including Antarctica, India, Africa, Canada, Scotland and Norway. Starting work as a photographer in the late 80`s shooting commercial rafting while following river trips in a kayak, it was not uncommon to solo boat grade 4/5 to stay ahead for the best shot. Working from print, slide and now digital, it is exciting to embrace new technology. Having skills to photograph unusual places, being with other people - yet feel comfortable in the extremes of the most appalling or beautiful conditions is an advantage.
