Welcome to Flax Cove Studio. Over the past 25 years, my work has taken me around the world on various commissions and assignments and has been awarded multiple awards. I specialize in lifestyle and editorial portraiture which transfers well into wedding photography bringing a fresh, vibrant and natural look. Hope you enjoy my work and please contact me if you have any questions?
A Quick Bio
My passion for photography was ignited in my late teens, whilst on a trip around Africa. A gap year in my early 20’s saw this passion cemented. Travelling gave me the extra confidence to further my photography knowledge and I graduated from Falmouth College of Arts (UK), with Hons, in 2001. Over the years my work has continued to take me around the globe, to such places as the Maldives, Europe, America, and Africa. In 2006 I moved to New Zealand, where some of my favorite assignments have come through Tourism New Zealand. It’s also been a pleasure photographing a range of New Zealand celebrities, public figures and politicians ( and the occasional Prime Minister!) In 2014, I moved to Europe, where I continued working freelance, but also worked as an Associated Lecturer at Falmouth University. In 2018 I returned back to New Zealand to continue with my fine art practice and re-launched Flax Cove Studio.
