Geoff is an acclaimed Australian landscape photographer. From his base in Australia, he travels the world seeking to capture through his own eyes inspiring photographs of the world's spectacular landscapes. His New Zealand landscape books have become best sellers in their respective categories.

His photography started out as a mild interest and hobby, but has grown to be his full-time profession, and probably obsession. He uses photography to convey how he sees the beauty in things.

"I'm sure every photographer is influenced by many other photographer's work, either consciously, or sub-consciously. This is certainly true for me, and without doubt the person who has had the greatest influence over my approach to photography has been someone I never actually met, Galen Rowell.  During my various trips to California, I always made a point of visiting his superb gallery in Bishop, which is still in full swing, despite his untimely death a few years ago.

Harry is a NZIPP Master of Photography and winner of NZIPP Auckland Photographer of the Year. He was a finalist in the NZIPP Iris Awards 2011 Landscape Category.

He developed his skills over many years in a wide range of areas from studio portraits and wedding photography to commercial photography, photofinishing and printing, and professional digitaL retouching for photographers, New Zealand wide and overseas.

His images are about mood and drama, and many of his landscapes include heavy cloud cover or even bad weather. The texture, tones and details of the clouds are an integral part of his landscape work and dark brooding overtones have become his signature style.

Harry's early training covered every aspect of the photographic process.

Brian became first interested in photography as a child. After getting married he built a darkroom in his house. In 2000, when he immigrated to New Zealand, there was nowhere to be able to set up a darkroom so he converted to digital. He bought his first point and shoot digital camera in 2002 but became frustrated with the limitations and quality of the images produced with that camera and soon after acquired a Digital SLR. He was awarded a Licenciateship of the Photographic Society of New Zealand in 2004 and the following year was awarded the Licentiateship of Royal Photographic Society.  Brian has two personal exhibitions in the Festival.

Reverend Dr John Kinder MA (1819 - 1903)

CPF wish to acknowledge the support from Kinder House Society, who manage Kinder House.

Built in 1857, Kinder House is one of Auckland's most notable stone buildings. The building was commissioned by Bishop G. A. Selwyn as a schoolmaster's house for the first headmaster of the Church of England Grammar School. The schoolmaster's house is of rubble construction, basically using scoria from Mt Eden, with dressed stone at corners and openings thought to have been quarried at Mt Wellington.

John Kinder, who occupied the house, was educated at Cambridge University and ordained a Deacon at St Paul's, London. Immigrated to New Zealand to become a Master at the Church of England Grammar School, thence Master at St John's College. Although painting and photography were only hobbies as far as Kinder was concerned, today his achievements as an artist are valued more highly than his contribution as a teacher and churchman. He began photography in New Zealand sometime about 1860. Using the wet plate process he made some 400 glass plate negatives between 1860 and 1888. In his photographs he widened the range of subject matter to include portraits and figure studies.

John Kinder was a keen traveler who spent many of his holidays visiting remote parts of the country making sketches and taking photographs.

No works by John Kinder are included in the auction.
