Hi - I'm Natwick, a professional photographer and web designer based in Tapanui, New Zealand. I was born and raised in Australia to a New Zealand mum and an Aussie dad. I've travelled across the ditch to visit relos all my life and finally moved to New Zealand to live in 2016.
Natwick on Photography
I'm self-taught in photography and have been creating images for more than 25 years. I started off shooting professional sports back in the days of film, supplying photos to magazines and newspapers. Now days, I'm passionate about all genres of photography: portraiture, family, head shots, weddings, engagements, newborns, groups, as well as commercial photography for businesses across all industries, and travel photography. In other words, if my camera is in my hands it is going to be a brilliant day!
Quality photography is much more than taking pretty pictures, it's an art form. It can't be compared to the photos that you take on your mobile phone, that are uploaded to social media or left on a hard-drive that's tucked away in your home-office drawer, never to be printed. People engage my services when they want a photograph that is special to them, a keepsake worth printing, framing and hanging on the wall in pride of place, or, to showcase their business in a bold way.
Natwick on Web Design
When it comes to web design I like to create clean and fresh designs that are visually engaging and easy to navigate. Less is definitely more in today's fast paced world where attention spans are short and news is delivered in thumb strokes and sound bites. Combining my photography with my web design will make your business pop online. I'm also a qualified and experienced journalist, so I can assist you with the written content for your website, if needed. It gives me great satisfaction helping people to grow their business in a digital space.
Working with other Creatives
Art is subjective and ever evolving, that's why egos and feelings should be cast aside to get the best results possible. I love working alongside other creatives on projects whether as the lead or as the assistant. I'll happily take photos for other digital designers, and on big projects, I am happy to just be involved. I'm not above fetching the coffees and doing whatever it takes to help the team reach their goal/s.
