New Zealand books at their best

Gavin Conroy

Gavin Conroy has had a longstanding interest in aviation, first gaining his pilot’s licence at the age of 16. He moved seriously into aviation photography in 2005, and since then has spent hundreds of hours planning and flying to put together the collection of photographs that formed the basis of Precious Metal: Classic Fighters in New Zealand. When not taking photographs he works in the timber industry and is based in Blenheim.
