Kia ora. Welcome to Room 18’s website.
My name is Ross Trafford. I was born in Gisborne, on the sunny East Coast. I have four brothers and we grew up on a sheep and cattle farm.
Some of my childhood interests are still with me today. I enjoy photography and tramping. With friends, I’ve tramped most of the scenic Great Walks of New Zealand.
Travelling is also another interest of mine and I enjoy filming the trips. Seven years ago, I bought my first drone and this has now expanded to three. I formed a New Zealand drone operators’ Facebook group and it is now the largest in N.Z., with over 4,800 members and growing. I will be teaching interested Te Rapa students drone operating.
