About Me


Art & photography have been long time passions since the days of my art teacher at school also being a photographer and me setting up my own little darkroom at home.  It has been a slow realization that this is a journey I wanted to continue, take much further & take you along on the ride.

I always had an enthusiasm for sharing images of our stunning New Zealand landscapes, unique wildlife, diverse culture and people which continues today and extends to other places & countries I travel to.

Much of my time is spent between the Coromandel & Auckland regions with frequent road trips throughout New Zealand.

The artist emerges often so I am also able to offer a different perspective, a unique image, something a little quirky for those seeking a photographic image that connects with them.  I enjoy playing, experimenting trying new things.

“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” Ansel Adams

Karen McLeod Photography sells directly through this site & selected Galleries including Mosaic Gallery, Whitianga & Moko Artspace, Hot Water Beach. 

If there are any images that you want printed or framed differently to what is available in the gallery or an image that you have seen on my Facebook page or Instagram, then contact me and I will be as accommodating as possible.

I want to share the vision, enjoyment and excitement of what I see in that place, at that second that the shutter opened to capture a lasting memory with those who were unfortunate & missed witnessing that moment in time.

“Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past.” Berenice Abbott
