Whilst working as an art director in advertising in the 80s in the UK, David Kerr ventured into landscape photography.
Learning the craft on his own time, David initially honed his skills shooting imagery in both the UK and Europe, and decided to return to his home country of New Zealand in 1984 to start publishing a range of premier postcards.
Over the past 30-odd years there have been more than seven books published, a comprehensive range of designer collection Postcards, Calendars, Postage Stamp designs and many corporate publications.
David has also won several photographic competitions, and was named the official licencee for the 1990 New Zealand Commonwealth Games for Postcard product, and in 1986 won the Tourism Design Award for souvenir design from the New Zealand Tourism Board.
Now that's what we call a self-made success story.
