"Perspectives Mid Canterbury" Books

Mid Canterbury is a mix of vibrant farmland on the plains and beautiful wilderness in the inland mountains. In 2006 I published Perspectives Mid Canterbury, this has now sold out.

Another Perspective Mid Canterbury is an all new collection of images, published in the same format, a 64 page hard cover A5 sized book with very nice reproduction.

These books capture the diversity of the district and are a perfect size to mail. Locals buy them to show others where we live; people passing through buy it as a reminder of their visit.

The books are also a great corporate gift for companies with overseas clients. No other books specifically focus on Mid Canterbury. Significant discounts are available for quantity purchases.

Perspectives books are stocked in Mid Canterbury book stores and iSites, Whitcoulls and Paper Plus. RRP is $24. You can also order direct from me, I can send it anywhere in the world.


Each year I print a small run of calendars using my photography of the beautiful Mid South Island area I live and work in. It is A4 sized, printed on good quality paper with plenty of space on each day for notes to organise your year.

In Methven you can buy them at Mail and More, Methven Motors (the Mobil garage), or the iSite. In Ashburton, Fusion Gallery stocks them.

If you are out of town let me know and I'll pop them in the mail. The calendars are still only $12. Shipping is $5 to anywhere worldwide (for up to two). If you just want one or two, the easiest way is to click the PayPal link here.  If you want more, contact me for a bulk rate and postage quote.
