Hi, I’m Dave Simpson APSNZ LRPS.  I’m a live event and people photographer based in Auckland capturing photos for a variety of clients for them to share the amazing things that they get up to.

People are awesome and I love to capture the moment so the memories can be kept and shared.

I’ve been photoing for over 10 years, I am a contributor to Getty Images for editorial work and have had my images displayed in various exhibitions.

My editorial images regular appear in numerous local and international publications including The New York Times, USA Today, The Guardian, The Daily Mail, The Sun, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Forbes, Vanity Fair,  People, The Huffington Post, Pitchfork, NME etc and my photos have been used by brands like Prada, Carlsberg and LDV.
