Gavin Ogden - Local Focus Video Journalist for Tauranga, Western Bay of Plenty, Waikato and the Coromandel
Gavin has spent most of his working life writing stories, telling stories and now filming stories.
His journalism career began in the UK before moving to New Zealand in 2009. He briefly jumped the fence to work in communications for some of the world's biggest brands before branching out alone as a videographer.
"I've been telling stories my entire career – from the days of paper right through to the internet and social media. My passion to create engaging video content along with my background in journalism makes being a Local Focus video journalist a dream role."
