Hello, I'm Gordon Barney.

As the name would suggest this web site is full of photos of things New Zealand. I live near the North Otago town of Oamaru, about 110kms north of Dunedin, on the South Island of New Zealand. A lot of my scenic photography is representative of this location as we are close to mountain areas and the Waitaki valley with its hydro lakes.

I am a mechanic/engineer by trade and developed my keen interest in photography as a boy, having been introduced to it by my father. After a period of study, in the year 2000 I graduated from "The New Zealand Institute Of Business Studies" with a diploma in Freelance Photography.

Though landscapes are possibly my favourite form, with a background in machinery my photography work has taken me from agricultural contracting fleets, trucks and road transport fleets through to work for farming, trucking and metropolitan publications. I also work with a client base on family portraits, weddings, sports groups, aerial photos, conventions etc.

My other interests include, with my wife and family, water & snow skiing, jet boating, trout fishing and I am involved in music including operatic and brass banding.
