Holding my Mum's old Box Brownie camera and watching the upside down image of the TV through it's little frosted window was the start of my photography journey.
That Box Brownie was so magical to me at such an early age, just like the modern day equivalent is to me now. It is a love affair that I know will last my whole life.
I live in Devonport on the North Shore of Auckland and I absolutely love it here. I feel so fortunate to live in this little slice of paradise; 18,000 Kilometers away from where I was born; in North Wales. I've lived in New Zealand for a while with my husband Steve and our loyal two year old dog; Ramsey (named after the Isle of Man - Ramsey Sprint).
I started my photography business at the end of 2018 and since then, I've been helping small to medium businesses with images for social media and websites. I've also been an event and portrait photographer as well as a product photographer for a number of clients and that side of my business is growing steadily. It's been so much fun and a steep learning curve managing a new business while trying to promote my services.
Before starting my photography business, I was a Project Manager for New Zealand Defence Force so you could say I'm used to those tight deadlines.
As a photographer I like to operate with imagination, individuality and impact. I'm responsive and kind and I take pride in my passion and integrity. I'm so easy going and I enjoy meeting new people and sharing the lighter side of life and I think that comes through in my personality and my work.
I love looking through the lens and capturing images that inspire and provoke. And it all started with that little Box Brownie...
