Brodie grew up in a small town in the south island of New Zealand called Motueka. Brodie spent many of his youthful years riding freestyle BMX. He first became curious about photography when he began taking action shots of his friends doing BMX, this was the beginning of his photographic journey, but little did he know then, all the unthinkable adventures that were to come.
During a trip to Africa, Brodie’s passion for photography further ignited, as a simple safari across the terrains of Africa and shooting the elephants lions zebras etc in their natural environment sparked something in Brodie, as this is when he first knew this isn’t what he wanted to do, but what he was meant to do. For the magic in seeing the animals interact with the landscapes surrounding them inspired something in Brodie and so his journey as a travel photographer began.
Brodie then went on to travel and explore South Africa (Most of South east Asia), Australia and New Zealand, carrying his camera in hand and sense of adventure, wherever the wind took him. As he’s travelled along the coasts of both Vietnam and Indonesia by motorbike; experiencing too many break downs, living amongst the locals and getting a glimpse into how the villagers truly live in these small villages, off the beaten tourist tracks, lived in the jungle with the Mentawai tribe on the island of Mentawai Indonesia, drunken alcohol containing questionable ingredients such as baby goats head on the streets.
Brodie practices in both portrait photography and landscape photography. His landscape photographs capturing the raw and natural beauty of Australia and New Zealand, whilst his world portraits offer an authentic insight into how some the world’s most interesting and diverse cultures interact in their everyday lives, as Brodie has a specific interest in the ethnic and native tribes of the world and street life, captured primarily in the streets of south east Asia..
