Meet Neil

Hi, I’m Neil and I’m a beardy giant.  That’s me stood on top of one of my favourite places in the world – Mount Maunganui, NZ. 

I am a wedding photographer and I love traveling the world to observe and preserve love stories.

Telling unforgettable tales in lands far, far away, over the mountains, across the seas. 

I have a gorgeous wife called Rebecca who helps to keep me sane. We have 4 children, 1 dog and 1 cat.  No guinea pigs yet but I do keep getting asked and in reality it’s just a matter of time! – yeah so that happened and now we have two those as well, noisy little things!

As you can probably tell from that, I am used to managing chaos and still getting things done – most of the time πŸ˜€ –  which comes in really handy for weddings!

I love travelling, getting out into nature where there is nothing but the sounds of the animals, the wind blowing through the trees, peace and tranquility.

My ultimate dream is me and the family in a big motorhome, no plan and no time constraints, travelling all 7 continents and learning all there is to learn about the world.  Although there would have to be a motorbike on the back too for when I need me time, probably a classic Ducati…

Why are you called Type1 Photography?

I sometimes get asked “Why call yourself Type1 Photography?”
Well that is influenced by my love of classic VW cars and vans. The original classic VW Beetle’s factory name was a ‘Type1’. 
I have had a few of them over the years in various states of disrepair, currently making do with a Type4 campervan though as it has more seats πŸ˜€

Ready To See The Packages?

~ I can sometimes be described as so relaxed I am horizontal.

~ If there is a crisis, I’m the one people call – a bit like a one man A-Team.

~ I love the smell of cigars, they remind me of my dad and lazy summer holidays. 

~ The party is always the best part of the day and I WILL sing along to pretty much everything!

~ On wedding days I exist on Red Bull and Snickers.

~ Picard is, was, always will be, THE Captain

~ The original Disney films are the best – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Mary Poppins….

~ I am the one who knocks and you know that winter is coming.
