As well as being a writer, I’m also a commercial photographer – meaning that you can hire one person instead of two to communicate your brand story. And with my background in marketing consulting, the communications I’ll create for you will all have a purpose and intention.
Here are photos from recent client and magazine shoots. As your Kerikeri photographer, I specialise in candid photos for businesses of people just doing their thing, as well as travel photography. I’m based in Kerikeri, Bay of Islands, Northland but love (LOVE!) travelling further afield.
You’ll also find my photos for sale on popular stock photography sites, such as Adobe Stock, Dreamstime, Shutterstock, iStock and Alamy. Or if you’d like to licence stock photos from me directly, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Prices start at $5 for a non-exclusive, small-sized image, suitable for Instagram and Facebook.
My stock photos have been used by the BBC, Forbes, Air New Zealand, NZ Herald, Mitre 10, Super 8, Which?, Asda Good Living, and more.
The photos below have been commissioned by my clients, or taken for magazine writing projects. Please don’t use these photos without permission, as they are protected by copyright. Thanks.
