Adrian Hodge is an enthusiastic part-time landscape photographer based in Rotorua, New Zealand.
Having bought his first DLSR in October 2008 when his son was just two for taking more 'creative shots' of his family, it wasn't until early 2013 that he ventured outside to take some dedicated photos of the stunning sunset taking place at his parents home in Motueka. After that a fuse was lit and he started taking more landscape photos and seeing the world differently and began seeking out great light and environments to capture.
He also saw photography as a great companion skill set and service to offer his clients as part of his own web design business. But photography is becoming a bigger part of his overall business and he has been working with local tourism businesses in Rotorua and has sold licenses to companies around the world and even has a photo as a 40m wide mural on a rooftop garden in Shenzhen, China.
Nowadays you'll most likely see him out shooting around Rotorua during golden hour when he's more likely to get amazing colours in the sky. He enjoys taking photos of landscapes, experimenting with HDR (High Dynamic Range), long exposures, panoramas & astrophotography. He has a slight obsession with documenting the many jetty's around the Rotorua lakes district.
