"One comment I get so often is that people in my photos look like they're relaxed and enjoying themselves. It's because they are! One thing I'm big on is allowing people to feel relaxed in front of the camera - your photoshoot should be a fun experience!"

Bruce Gabites is Managing Director and the principal photographer of Fine Photography. With over 16 years experience as a full time professional photographer, Bruce is a NZ Institute of Professional Photography Qualified Master of Photography.

"Great photography goes deeper than simply showing what you look like," says Bruce. "My passion is about telling stories through photography - stories about who you are and your relationship with those you love. When the qualities of intimacy, relationship and love come together in a moment of your life, the resulting image will endure as a piece of fine art - it will always touch your heart when you look at it."

Bruce has photographed around 500 weddings in NZ and internationally since 1995. The recipient of over 35 national photographic awards, Bruce is the only NZ photographer ever to have won the prestigious Kodak Gold Award (Wedding Album Category) in ten successive years (2000-2011). In 2012 Bruce won "NZ Wedding Album of the Year" at the prestigious Epson/NZIPP NZ Professional Photography Awards.

Bruce is a past-Chairman of NZIPP Auckland. He been a judge at the National Epson NZIPP NZ Professional Photography Awards and has appeared on TV and lectured to professional photographers throughout NZ. His photography has been published in books and magazines, both nationally and internationally and several of his wedding photos are held in a collection at The Museum of NZ Te Papa Tongarewa.

Bruce has lived with his wife Jane and sons Luke and Thom, both born at the very end of last century, in their home in the sub-tropical rainforests of Titirangi for the last 20 years. When not photographing, Bruce is sailing, surfing, diving, mountainbiking, skiing, running, bushwalking, practising yoga or occasionally just blobbing out.
