My name is Abi & I love the magic of a photograph…
Originally from Somerset, England, I moved to New Zealand in 2006 & haven't looked back! I graduated from University in Nottingham with a BA (hons) in Graphic Design. Whilst studying towards my degree I became fascinated in the hidden secrets of a dark room; the excitement of seeing an image gradually appear & immortalising a memory onto paper.
A lot has changed since then & technologies have definitely moved on, but my love & fascination with photography has remained.
I then retrained as an art teacher at Exeter University & taught Art, Photography, English & Media Studies….phew! During my time as a photography tutor at WITT, my aim was to instil my passion onto the students I taught & show them the many facets there are to producing a beautiful image.
I am currently located in New Plymouth, Taranaki. I live with my patient husband, two beautiful boys, 2 hairy dogs, a fostered cat & a coop of chickens. I am a lover of The Goonies, tea, making cakes & lounging in my pjs.
In addition to weddings, family & event photography, I often produce corporate imagery for business websites (headshot, behind the scenes etc) as well as landscapes & prints. Please contact me for further information!
Thanks to my fellow photographer friend, Mikayla Bollen, for this hair & mouth portrait!
