I have had many (non-photographers) ask 'What's with the f22 bit?' Two reasons, f22 is short, sharp and hopefully easy to remember, and the second reason, well, you have to be a photographer to know about f.
I love travelling around and photographing the beautiful landscapes and nature subjects that our Queenstown Lakes District and Central Otago Districts have to offer.

About the Banner Pic
The banner pic is a panorama of one of our first snowfalls of the year. It is a composite of nine photos taken in vertical format.
The area in the middle of the shot is 'The Hills', Michael Hill's famous golf course. On the left are the Remarkables, and to the right leads to Coronet Peak.
This image was featured as a double-page spread in the book 'New Zealand Weather' from Television One News.

Recently, one prominent local Queenstown tourism-based business copied and featured one of my images on their website. Then, not a week later, a national Coffee Shop chain featured the same image! One company had artfully sliced my copyright notice from the bottom of the image, the other didn't bother. But wait, there’s more. The YHA here in Queenstown had copied and printed the photo, trimming my copyright notice off, and displayed in their central city office as if it was their own image! I have now placed the watermark right through the middle of the image.
I will name and shame them here.
They are www.queenstown.com, www.thecoffeeclub.co.nz and the YHA hostel in Queenstown.
A note for other photographers who may be concerned with photo theft. You can find out who else is using your images by doing an image search in Google or subscribe to Pixsy.com. This is how I found out my pics were being used by others. I check the search terms used to find my site in the stats, and if my suspicions are aroused I do a search.

New Zealand fur seal about to take a huge chunk out of the photographer. Not really, was photographed from a safe distance and is just having a big yawn. In Flora and Fauna.
