richard brimer

I am a Hawke’s Bay based commercial and fine art photographer, working internationally and across New Zealand. Having found photography at high school I went on to complete a photography apprenticeship which began a lifelong passion and career behind the lens.

As they say, the rest is history.

Throughout my career my works have been published in many magazines including Urbis, Cuisine Magazine, New Zealand Architecture, Australian Gourmet Traveller, New Zealand Wine and the Air New Zealand Kia Ora Magazine.

As a follower of wine, food and the Arts, I have been constantly inspired to capture the beauty and joy these industries bring, along with the people that have a story to tell.

I have published 16 books and had many solo exhibitions in locations including the Hastings City Art Gallery, New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Wellington, Muse Havelock North and Blackbarn Gallery.
