Did you know?

So I guess after 23 years and over 5000 weddings (over 1000 by Chris alone) you could say we are well known in the wedding industry, we also capture hundreds of corporate portraits each year with amazing companies in industries as varied as banking, real estate, herbal medicine, law, engineering….

but did you know?

Chris’s other passion is motorsport. From racing to the simple beauty of car design.

Over the past 3 years Chris has combined his passion for photography with his love of cars and is now regarded as one of the top automotive photographers in the country.

His clients include: Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Audi, Peugeot, Volvo, Pirelli, Bridgestone to name a few.

A new section is about to be placed on the website, dedicated to this niche.

Here are a few images of his recent work.

Dillon photography – May 2015

Dillon Photography – The Month of May

Wedding photography, Corporate portraiture, Graduation Photos, Event photography, Sports photography and Automotive photography. Forget ‘better work stories’ by joining the police. My life as a professional photographer is so full of variety. There were some great challenges this month. It’s been an amazing month of photography in May. Here is a quick sample of the photography I have produced in May 2015.

Starting with BBYC learn to sail programme and finishing with their winter series Rum Race.

For more info: www.bbyc.org.nz This is an awesome programme for kids.

For the adults…. Rum race…. buy a boat or crew, join BBYC, win your race, drink rum. not too hard.

My favourite Event photography is quite honestly anything to do with my favourite non-human client Moe. His musical mystery with the APO was brilliant. I think more fun was had by the parents than the kids. I love you Moe.

Corporate headshot time with 2 wonderful clients: Babbage and Glaister Ennor

My corporate portraiture gets me all around Auckland and NZ. It’s wonderful to meet such professional people doing so many amazing things.

May is Graduation Portrait time. The first job was for my wonderful client The Open Polytechnic with 400 or so Grads in 5 hours. Phew!

The following day I had the pleasure of meeting Dorcas and her mum for a well deserved portrait shoot for both mother and daughter and the studio.

Back to Car Photography with Downforce Auto Events and another fav client Continental Car Services.

Taupo was never the same after 2 days of Porsche, Ferrari (and a Mclaren P1) destroying Taupo Motorsport park. I had a nice fang around in a Porsche GT3. Thank you to the German God of engineering…. no offence to the Italians.

This is probably the biggest collection of stupid awesome cars in NZ. Top Gear couldn’t manage this if they tried. Wonderful people, brilliant cars, fun, period.

Finally it was time to spend some quality time with the family. What better way than a trip to Taupo and a day at Huka Lodge.

While we were there we grabbed some clothes from Seed, and took some shots of the kids having fun. They now feature on the Huka Lodge website.

It is such a beautiful place to stay. The service is 5star, the food is amazing. They really catered to the kids needs as well as ours. For a venue that is perceived to be adults only I can honestly say it was one of the nicest hotel/ lodges we have ever stayed with and very family friendly. We will be back.



So that was May 2015. Good luck beating those stories NZ Police.

As per usual…. If you want to get in contact I am only a phone call/ email away.

To put all my details straight into the contacts on your phone simply Text PHOTOS to 215

It’s magic!!!

Dillon Photography blew us away! We had the most magical day with our photographers. They made us feel so relaxed and had us all laughing constantly which made for very fun photos. They were so detailed and it really showed in every one of our photos. I couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend ‘Dillon’ to everyone! Thanks for an amazing day.

Welcome to Dillon

Its been a frantic summer season of weddings  – my personal forte.

I love to attend such a special moment in people’s lives and to help create images that reflect the emotions of the day.
