Welcome to Elkeith Photography!

On this site you'll find information and photos of New Zealand birds, details of where to see them and how to photograph them as well as general photographic tutorials, essays and equipment reviews.

I try to get out and enjoy New Zealand's natural splendor when I can, so I hope you enjoy browsing my photo galleries!

The site is added to regularly. Please check back soon for more New Zealand bird galleries, information and photos!
