About Me

Clouseau, A Photographer


I’m Brett Amos however I am better known to all of my friends and colleagues as Clouseau. (Long story)

When I was around 6 years old my Grandmother gave me my first camera. It was made of plastic and had screw in flash bulbs. I took my little camera everywhere and became a crazy photographer snapping at everything and anything, much to the dismay of my parents who had to pay for my entire picture developing costs. (Sounds like most photographers’ lol.)  I have been hooked on photography ever since and still carry a camera everywhere I go.

I have had a fantastic life and been lucky enough to work in some very exciting countries around the World and have been privileged to photograph their people.

Photography is always something that seems to make people smile and it certainly breaks down barriers. Whilst working in war torn Countries it was my camera that broke the tension.

I am passionate about photography and people (probably a little crazy too which helps ;-). Whether it is your magical wedding day, a portrait or an event, I will work hard with you to make the experience enjoyable, fun and relaxing with results that you will be proud to display.  A photograph is a memory captured for life and should bring back all the feelings, sensations, memories and pleasure of when it was taken.

The great thing about what I do is that I have loads of fun and get to meet some fantastic, cool people.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website, if you want to know more just pick up the phone or send me an e mail.  We are more than happy to answer any of your questions with no obligation.

I look forward to meeting and working with you.



“We photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing, and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth can make them come back again. We cannot develop and print a memory.” 

Though we are primarily based in Napier, we will travel anywhere in the Bay of Plenty, Hawke's Bay, Northland area or even the Pacific to be your perfect wedding, portrait or commercial photographer.
