We had become conscious of the photography opportunities offered by Oamaru from fellow photographers and were not disappointed. A conservative north Otago town which is also Steam Punk capital of New Zealand. While having a population of only around 15,000 Oamaru services a large rural hinterland and the central town area is both substantial and notable for its architecture – supported by liberal use of Oamaru stone with a very traditional English/Scottish feel. We spent the morning making our way through town, past the historical sector, to the port where we were greeted by an incoming sea fog.


Hope you are enjoying the images
