Born in New Zealand in 1969, Ross knew from the age of 13 that he wanted to be a Photographer. He has been single mindedly pursuing Photography as a career, and way of life, ever since.
His focus is Advertising & Design, where he works within a wide range of styles, and techniques, covering subject matter as diverse as Landscape, People, Sport, Animals, Still life and Conceptual work.
Ross believes that Advertising Photography can be an Art Form in it’s own right, as is evident in his work.
His images are classical, inherently elegant, and meticulous in detail. He combines a mastery of light and form, mood and atmosphere, with a strong emotive quality and sensitivity to his subject matter.
He possesses a high degree of technical ability and is particularly skilled at producing multiple composite images. Ross believes every job should be finely crafted, and likes to have a hand in the retouching of his work, following a job through to completion.
Ross enjoys photographing overseas and has traveled extensively, both for work and pleasure, throughout India, Africa and Europe.
He currently lives in Auckland, New Zealand with his wife Anna, (also a Photographer), and 2 daughters Isabella and Olivia.
Ross’s work has won many prestigious awards, including a Gold and a Bronze Lion Award at the Festival for Advertising at Cannes, along with numerous Advertising Awards within New Zealand (AXIS).
Lurzers Archive rates him among the top 200 Advertising Photographers worldwide.
Ross is the only double recipient of the Brian Brake Memorial Award for Photographic Excellence in NZ (AIPA) 2003, 2004.
One of his images is in the collection of the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris.
Ross is currently working on a personal project and exhibition.
His passions are photography, art, architecture, travel, snowboarding, fly fishing and most.
