Wildlife photographer Ross Curtis
will be joining the Lumsden Fusion
Gallery and Studio’s artist in
residence series this weekend.
He is taking a new step in his
life to focus all his attention on
professional photography after
resigning from his position with
the Department of Conservation
Curtis credits Art Wolfe – an
American photographer of 30
years of wildlife, landscapes and
native cultures – as his main
“His images are incredible in
capturing wildlife living within their
natural environment, illustrating
the involvement they have in their
day-to-day habits or struggle for
survival. Portraying an animal
or tranquil scene, untouched in
the wild is what inspires me,” Mr
“I feel this opportunity to be an
artist in residence provides a
real chance for exposure as a
photographic artist. This may be
an avenue in which to pursue a
career, and to be honest, one I
hadn’t initially considered until
meeting the team at Fusion
Gallery and Studio in 2010.”
Gallery coordinator Michelle Wallis
said they were delighted to be able
to offer this opportunity.
“We believe in his ability as a
photographer and we hope that
this first step is one in a very long
and successful career,” she said.
In the future Mr Curtis plans to
travel throughout New Zealand
and to surrounding islands and
Antarctica to capture some of the
last remaining true wilderness
areas we have left.
But while in studio, he plans to
be editing and processing digital
files from his latest photographic
excursion visiting Doughboy and
Mason Bays in Stewart Island and
he welcomes interaction from
the public. He will be there on
Saturday from 10am until 3pm
and Sunday from 11am until 2pm.

Fiordland College students will be
sporting new uniforms this week
as they return to school after the
A committee, consisting of
teachers, students and members
of the PTA, was formed last year to
organise the new apparel.
The main changes are to the boys’
uniform with black shorts, black
socks, and long and short-sleeved
There will be a two-year phase
out period for some parts of the
uniform – the green fleece and
polo shirts – however the grey
shorts, shirts and socks are no
longer part of the uniform as of
this year. New items for both boys
and girls are jackets, microfleece
and P.E. uniform.
Principal Linda Miller said the
reasons behind the change
were to provide a uniform that
was warmer, smarter and cost
competitive. There was quite a lot
of consultation involved, liaising
with various people and kids trying
on the clothes.
The idea was to create pride in
wearing the uniform as well as
something that was suitable
for this area’s climate and the
activities that the students were
Ms Miller said that although the
uniform was now sourced from a
mix of suppliers it was possible for
parents to purchase online. The
committee tried hard to keep the
costs down as well as selecting
higher quality garments.
“We’re really aware of the expense
that uniforms are for parents, but
we’re also aware that if they’re
good quality they will last a long
time,” she said.
One of the issues revolved around
the materials used – the old
fleece became shapeless after
being worn for a time but the new
microfleece had better shape
retention. The old school jacket
has been replaced by two options
– a s oftshell jacket or a tracksuit
style jacket which are both multi
purpose and suitable for sports,
school camp and other outdoor
The P.E. uniform would smarten
the look of students when
representing the school in sports
and athletics, Ms Miller said.
