My Story

By Karen McLeod

This metamorphosis has been another step on my journey as a photographer.  I have gone from that person who only wanted to take images of birds, plants & landscapes as they were easier to deal with & avoided people because that had been outside my comfort zone.  Then I found my passion in creative & artistic portrait photography – it ignited a spark within me and one that I would love to share with you. 

I love to offer something a little different that allows my clients to express themselves in a way that they want rather than be posed by someone else.  Certainly I will offer some direction to help the client receive images that they will love, but I have a very relaxed style.  I shoot location portraits in a variety of styles to suit the client or the clients dream.

As a photographer based in Whitianga on the stunning Coromandel Peninsula, location photo shoots are generally around the Whitianga area.  If you are not local I am more than happy for you to choose a location in my area or I can travel to your destination by arrangement.

My portraits have won at the 2017 Art Waikino Exhibition, gained Honours at the North Shore Salon of Photography 2017, gained acceptance at the Photographic Society of NZ National Exhibition 2018.

I also have a range of Landscapes & other works, many award winners, which are also available for purchase.  Visit my Facebook or Instagram
