Craig Perkins - Photographist,  I owned my 1st camera at 5 years of age ( I still have it in my collection). Since then I have owned and operated 2 successful Professional Studios, had my work published both in New Zealand and Internationally and competed with my images with great success.

My photographic experience has been crafted for now over 5 decades. Upon leaving school, I worked for Camera House Invercargill and various studios in Southland. Eventually owning Hazeldines Studio in Invercargill for several years. Later moving to Timaru, and co-run and then Owned Kalksma and Associates, then the leading Professional Studio in South Canterbury.

With this length of dedication to the craft of photography, I have seen many changes in the industry and the processes. Having developed and printed my own colour commercially through to the digital transition of today - I even created this website!.

I have also taught Photography in both Invercargill and Timaru, in Poly Tech's and  Secondary Schools, my ability to share my knowledge and skills, has given me a wealth of experience that enables me to create images of quality and clarity.

Me with some of my cameras over the many years - excuse the fashion mistakes please.
