We recently interviewed Peter, a Wellington Photographer, for NZPhotographer and are excited to announce that he has joined us on Excio too. Here's a little about the man behind the camera! Read the full interview with Peter in Issue 3 of NZPhotographer Magazine online.

Peter, Can you tell us a little about yourself and your photography background?
I came to NZ in April 1991 on a 3 month visa to visit family, or so I thought. Just at that time was the breakup of Yugoslavia and because it was part of my country I decided not to go back 'home'– Being at war is awful. So I applied for asylum in NZ, it taking 2-3 years until I received my residence permit and citizenship. It was the best decision I’ve made – It is a great place to live and I never had any regrets about it.
Photography is my hobby. It is the way I escape from everything I “have to do”. I want photography to be for me, not driven by clients and customers.
