Tim Whittaker Photography

Tim is arguably Hawke’s Bay’s most talented photographer and is died-in-the-wool Hawke’s Bay. Tim’s passions include Te Mata Park for which he has voluntarily created its website and Maraetōtara River. Tim is always available to Trustees of Maraetōtara Tree Trust for photography at no cost.
