When you are ready to book your black and white portrait photography sitting, we will set a date and decide on a location that reflects your family. This may be in the comfort of your own home in Auckland, a favourite beach or park, or one of the many beautiful locations around Matakana.
On the day, I photograph in a casual and easy way, allowing you to relax, be yourself and enjoy your family. Allow around one to two hours for your portrait sitting.
I photograph in black and white because it has a lovely emotive quality that is perfect for portrait photography. Black and white photography is also classic and timeless, with an unrivalled style that looks beautiful in any interior.
The Photography Studio
After your portrait shoot, we make a time for you to see the images at my photography studio in Matakana, just 40 minutes north of the Auckland harbour bridge.
Each photograph is projected on to a large screen. We work together to curate your final selection. We then decide on the size of each portrait, and how they will look framed in your home.
My studio overlooks the beautiful Matakana country side on Tongue Farm Road, just one minute from Matakana Village, home to the well-known Saturday Farmer’s Market. Here you can enjoy a great coffee, local food and wine, or find inspiration in the specialty shops and galleries. A day trip to Matakana or the popular nearby beaches at Omaha and Tawharanui, is always a treat.
I carry a beautiful selection of frames in the studio. I will help you select frames to enhance your artwork and create the right look for your home. Each portrait is hand printed on museum quality paper, then signed and dated. Click here to view my gallery of framed images.
Your images will be framed with archival, acid-free framing, to preserve your portraits as works of art. If you live in Auckland, my framers will personally deliver your portraits to your door.
