I’ve been a professional photographer for 16 years, based in Wellington as a freelance photographer specialising in hospitality, editorial, product & fashion.


After spending several years working overseas, including being the senior in-house photographer for a leading talent and modelling agency in Melbourne, I was excited to return to Wellington and establish my own buisness working within the city I love and know so well.


I have a passion for creating deceptively simple and intimate images, intuitively capturing what is most beautiful in my subjects.


I pride myself on providing a comprehensive and tailored service for my clients, where I personally manage every aspect of professional shoots; from developing and pitching concepts, location scouting, lighting set-up, staging and shooting, right through to editing and post-production.


With a secondary background in hospitality since 1999, I also have an extensive knowledge and experience in the industry.  From glassy to Maître D’, through to team and venue management - I understand the complex and detailed  nature of this environment.

Continuing with my love for hospitality, I manage the social media for a range of  leading restaurants and bars in Wellington. This includes shooting all aspects of  venues from service, kitchen, bar  & restaurant environments as well as products; editing for both digital and print. Creating content and posts managing each of these brands as there own.


I would love the opportunity to work with you to create a solution for your business.
