Together we offer an independent, professional, personal service; a partnership honed over 25 years in the advertising industry, in sales and marketing, the newspaper business, and in book and magazine publishing. We have, between us, been involved in all aspects of the production of magazines, books, brochures and newsletters, as well as advertising and marketing material, and in working with creative teams in three corners of the world: New Zealand, the UK and the Caribbean.

The aim of this blog is to share our family’s travels around New Zealand, and beyond, through a passion for photography. Being a keen amateur cook, Mark also serves up recipes, either ones followed from established cooks, or ones created by himself.

Our family emigrated to New Zealand in 2006 after 10 years in Trinidad and Tobago, and before that we lived in England. Mark is British and Roslyn is “ah Trini” – in case you’re wondering . . .

  1. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a
    similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can
    advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.

  2. Hey Fletcher, yes, loads of spam that drives me nuts. Although the Askimet plug-in filters some, they still turn up in the spam comments section under the Dashboard, which I then trawl through every now and then deleting or marking as spam. There doesn’t seem to be a way around it. I guess that’s a price you have to pay. It’s very frustrating!

  3. Hi there, I am sitting here amazed at your special mention of my Warhorse. How very thrilled I am to see that you liked him (and took magnificent photos of him). Thank you so much for sharing his image and I hope to be in the next exhibition in 2016 with something new. It is always a journey for me to work away on my own for months on end in a shed and then throw open the doors to take my work out into the public. Sadly I couldn’t stay for the opening of Sculpture OnShore and I missed meeting viewers. Thanks again, Sharon Earl. x

  4. Hi there, I have stumbled (completely by surprise) upon your special mention of my Warhorse sculpture at Sculpture OnShore, and I am very humbled. Thank you for taking the time to view him and go to the effort of sharing your words and images. I was not able to stay long enough for the opening of the show, to meet viewers, and tell his story. I am so glad you liked him. It is always a journey – working alone in a shed for months on end, with a vision and a drive to make a fitting work to convey my story – and then to throw open the shed doors to take him out into the public. Having missed interacting with the public it is as though I missed a vital step. Your mention of him is rather delightful. Thank you so much, Sharon Earl.
