The underground is another world, around 15% of the planet's surface is karst (limestone). Beneath this complex landscape covered in dolines, sinking rivers and towering rock pinnacles is an enormous network of passages and shafts created by subterranean streams and rivers. It's a place vastly different from the one we know. But while almost every corner of the Earth has been explored, discovery of our cave systems is still in its infancy. In 2012, Neil set out to document the exploration of these amazing places and it continues to make up the core of his work today. He hopes that shining a light into these little-known places will change the public's perception of caves and caving.

His cave photography has featured in the New Zealand Geographic, Wilderness magazine, the New Zealand School Journal and other overseas publication.
