Writing doesn't come naturally to me so this took 4 days to write…

I am a photographer and artist, and I live in Auckland, NZ.

Like most photographers I am drawn to visual story telling. Be it a series of food images or a suite of product photographs, there is always a story to tell or a narrative to weave.

From 2015-2017 I worked as full-time food and lifestyle photographer for Annabel Langbein Media, a very busy, rewarding and well-fed job. But a solo trip to Ethiopia and Spain at the end of 2017 inspired me to take a few more risks in my everyday life, so I took the leap and went freelancing.

The last year has been one of the hardest for me in both my personal and work lives, and I have been on the steepest learning curve I think I have probably ever been on - but I’m still here, still trying and still learning, succeeding and failing. I have painted, drawn, made ceramics, designed logos and posters, created stop-motion videos and produced photography that I am proud of.

I work primarily with natural light, love a good challenge and just want to produce as much beautiful imagery as I can. I’m open to all the ideas and would love to hear about your project.

Order me a long black with cream and I’ll be there.
