John Mathews Photography

New Zealand based photographer specialising in portraits, landscapes and sports.

Having played a wide range of sports all my life at various levels, this experience has helped me anticipate the action to get the photo of the "magic moment".

I am also an active outdoors person who has hunted, fished and dived since age 15. These activities have taken me to some spectacular places and enabled me to capture truely unique perspectives of some stunning landscapes and amazing wildlife.

In addition, I come from a large family and have 4 children with an ever growing number of grandchildren. Increasingly, my time is devoted to visually recording those treasured moments in time as memory joggers of our life's journey. Interacting with children is forever challenging but always immense fun.

I hope you enjoy the images posted on my website.
