One to watch: a gallery of Connor Pritchard's work

Exploring the grittier elements of New Zealand landscapes, as well as venturing into photographing nature and people, is 16-year-old Connor Pritchard. The photographer fits in his passion for photography around his everyday school life at Napier Boys High School.

“I started connecting with people through Instagram who had the same interests, which inspired me to get a camera and start shooting,” Pritchard says on what got him into photography in the first place.

Now, with his Canon 700D in hand, Pritchard aims to create a career out of photography and continue doing freelance work.

We've compiled a gallery of Pritchard's work for you to admire below. To keep up to date with what Pritchard is currently working on, follow him on Instagram with the username @dxrra.
