2015 New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults.

On Thursday 13 August 2015, I got to photograph the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults which was held at Government House in Wellington. As a young boy I remember going to Government House with my Mum who used to work there. It was great going back after so many years and seeing the house again, this time myself as the one working! Here are some of the highlight photos. To see more click here.
