My first Solo Exhibition ‘I Float Alone’ opens 6pm 5th April 2019 & runs through until 12th May at Carson’s Gallery & Cafe Pollen Street Thames.
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. And if that’s not your journey, then I also offer standard portraits for individuals or groups, intimate weddings, engagements or other occassions.
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 Bronze & Honors at the 2018 North Shore Salon of Photography, come 3rd at the 2018 D-photo Sigma Photographer of the year, won at the 2017 Art Waikino Exhibition, gained Honors at the 2017 North Shore Salon of Photography, & gained acceptance at the Photographic Society of NZ National Exhibition 2018 & the Redlands International Exhibition in Australia & been feature in the Lens Culture Black & White Gallery.
I also have a range of Landscapes & other works, many award winners, which are also available for purchase. Visit my Facebook or Instagram
