David Nyika - Gold medallist boxer

So I first met David Nyika when he was about the age my youngest son is now...he went to Puketaha school where I used to teach (in my previous life) and his little sister was in my daughter's class.  Puketaha has this awesome community where everyone knows everyone and everyone celebrates the success of their fellow Puketaha peeps. So when David's boxing success led him to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow you better believe the whole Puketaha community was following his every move...the kids at Puketaha School think David is the pretty much the coolest human being ever.

He came out to school a couple of weeks back to speak at the Friday assembly and sign autographs for the kids.  This guy stood there for an hour after the homebell went signing autographs and posing with the kids for selfies...including this one with my Sam...

It was awesome to have the opportunity to photograph David again last week...this time in the studio.  We wanted to give David some images to use for postcards so that when he's visiting places and signing he has something cool to sign and leave with his fans. It's pretty awesome to be able to give something back to someone who is so generous in his giving to others.

And he's pretty photogenic too...so that's a bonus ;-)

My favourites from our shoot...
