With reference to: Will Calver, Ocean Photography.


I have worked closely with Will during the last 8 World Yachting Championships that have been hosted by Takapuna Boating Club, spanning the last four (4) years.
Will has been contracted to be the sole and dedicated photographer. His brief has been to:

  • Capture on-the-water shots of competitors, mark roundings, race management personnel and any other contest specific material.
  • Capture action shots of competitors, volunteers etc on shore preparing boats and facilities throughout the contest.
    Prepare a CD at the conclusion of each day’s competition and have it immediately available for playing through the Club’s monitors.
  • Make available high resolution shots on a daily basis for media reports and website uploads.
  • For the Prizegiving function at the conclusion of each contest, prepare a montage of daily photographs that plays continuously on big screens throughout the evening.
  • At the same function, to have ready and implement National Anthems and Flags for podium positions of contest winners.
  • Provide on-line service for contest photographs to be available to view and purchase during and after each contest.

Will has provided all the above services on a professional and timely basis. He is a pleasure to work with, having a wonderful personality and sense of humour.
Will has the advantage of providing his own vessel or, as we have arranged in our last few contests, a vessel and driver supplied by contest management.


Having a dedicated photographer has proved invaluable. We consider it protects both parties in regard to responsibilities and accountability. It gives us a professional appearance and working with someone we know and trust who will perform to expectations.

We would recommend Will Calver unreservedly for any marine photography opportunity that he may wish to pursue.

Yours Faithfully

Secretary/Manager/Event Director
