My work has been featured in many news sources, including The New York Times, BBC, The Guardian, The Washington Post, CBS News, National Geographic (numerous times), The New Zealand Herald and New Zealand Stuff. I have also been interviewed on the radio numerous times – examples include Radio New Zealand, BBC, CBC (Canada) and ABC (Australia).

I have featured on the New Zealand children's television show Fanimals.

I routinely assist journalists by providing photographs and by providing my expertise for articles about other people’s research. Examples include National Geographic, The Atlantic and Quanta Magazine.

All photographs on this website were taken by me. If you want to use any of my photographs, please get in touch.
