Hi, I'm excited to be part of this group and hope to learn, grow and meet other creatives. I grew up in West Auckland, surrounded by the Waitakere Ranges where I grew a love of landscapes and nature. Photography was always in the family thanks to my Dad but also, I have owned my own camera since I was about 6 and spent most of high school in the darkroom. I took a break from photography for a few years because of family and work but in the last year I have rekindled my passion for photography after purchasing my first really capable digital camera and have been enjoying discovering places I’ve never been, all around New Zealand, and hope to expand that to the world eventually. It’s been like coming home and I missed it so much.
