He arrived in New Zealand in 1909 and was employed by Dawson Limited in Dunedin as an eyesight specialist.

... George Chance (1885-1963) arrived as a disciple of the pictorialist practice. He had received personal tutelage from Alfred Horsley Hinton - a member of the Linked Ring Brotherhood and an associate of Henry Peach Robinson. Chance had an energetic and commanding personality, and soon emerged as a leading force in New Zealand Pictorialism.  [10]
