There’s a load of fresh, new photography galleries now online.

Whether you love your architecture served wild and coastal, with scientific precision, or a random place between those two destinations, there’s plenty to enjoy.

Find out about my glamourous life as a photographer!

As part of the Auckland Festival of Photography I’m taking part in the free Talking Culture Lecture Series.

I’ll be discussing my practice as a commercial photographer of architecture, people and places as well as my self-published, award winning book Portrait of a House.

Busy times!

There’s been plenty of nipping around the countryside recently for me, and now you get to enjoy the fruits with an eclectic architectural jaunt around NZ.

There’s something for everyone: from the grandeur of Government House to a temporary, street-side cinema in Auckland.

Portrait of a House has been doing a little world trip, this time popping up in the book review section of the incredibly stylish Elle Decor Italia.

If your Italian is a bit rusty here’s what they said:

“Featuring architectural daring from New Zealand.

Discover this home and project created on the hill by architect Ian Athfield.

An innovative publication, charmingly presented and photographed by Simon Devitt.

 

 

 

The winning just doesn’t stop!

The Institute of Architects’ Local Awards for Auckland were held last night and I’m thrilled to see some of my clients fantastic work has been recognised.

Congratulations to:
