I have been involved with Open2view since April 2000.
From being one of the first contractors to start Open2view in Canterbury I have seen the company grow into the well respected and professional Real Estate Photographic and Internet Service that it is today.
I am married to Susan and have an adult son Jeremy, who is currently at Canterbury University studying Chemical & Processing Engineering.
My photographic experience stems from being a Senior Photographer in the RNZAF covering all photographic services for all three Armed Services and sometimes NZ Police.
I started my working career by joining the NZ Army at age 16, and had a number of “Trades” until I completed 20 years in the Armed Services, the last 12 as a Senior Photographer. I then followed the civilian Photographic Trade in various roles until I purchased a Retail Photographic store in Christchurch (GardenCity Photos – Riccarton Mall) which I operated with Susan at my side for nearly 10 years, after which I sold out to the giant Kodak.
After a brief period (Nearly 2 years) of selling Real Estate with “The Professionals”, I then followed a sales career with “Noel Leeming” for 8 years and gained valuable Sales and Computer experience finishing up as Store Manager of the now defunct “Computer City”.
When the opportunity arose to become involved with Open2view in 2000, I jumped at the chance. I immediately saw the potential of Real Estate Marketing via the Internet and have seen many changes in the growth of the internet and services.
The one thing that hasn’t changed in 10 years though, is the requirement for High Quality Images that can be used in all facets of Real Estate Marketing.
Owning the Open2view Fendalton Photographer Franchise has given me the opportunity to provide a full high quality photographic service to Real Estate Salespeople with-in my select franchise area whilst being a part of a progressive and innovative international organisation.
I pride myself in giving the best possible service and product to both salespeople and vendors alike. I strongly believe in Honesty, Integrity, Reliability and Loyalty to all my “customers” and strive to achieve the best possible result to assist in the positive marketing of all Real Estate.
