About

I'm Franklin Davis, a photographer, videographer and musician who lives in Auckland, New Zealand. I travel extensively and document the places I visit with photographs and video. This website showcases the spectacular scenery of Aotearoa (New Zealand) through these media, accompanied by music I write and record under the name Torn Chorus.

Enjoy seeing the highlights of our country without leaving home - in locations such as Auckland, Northland, Coromandel, Rotorua, Taupo, Hawkes Bay, Martinborough, Wellington, Nelson, Blenheim, Abel Tasman, Marlborough, Queenstown, Manapouri, Doubtless Sound and many other destinations.
