I've lived pretty much my entire life in New Zealand and started playing Ultimate in 1992 at university. It was an instant way of life for the next 15 years.
I started nzsnaps.com a few years ago to display my work and pay for some toys.
Focussing on extreme sports like downhill mountainbiking, rallying, kiteboarding, wakeboarding etc, as a long time ultimate player I found myself as an official photographer for WUCC2006 (World Ultimate Club Champs) in Perth. Playing for the NZ Masters team as well that year, a knee injury dramatically limited my time (and effectiveness) on the field but hooked me on shooting international elite level ultimate.
Since then, I've been an official photographer for WUGC2008 in Vancouver, WUCC2010 in Prague and WUGC2012 in Sakai, Japan.
