Hi - I'm Natwick, a professional photographer and web designer based in Tapanui, New Zealand. Born and raised in Sydney to a Kiwi mum and an Aussie dad, I've travelled across the ditch all my life and finally moved to NZ to live in 2016.
When I'm not building websites and taking photos you'll find me out hiking, doing DIY around my house, hanging with my bestie, Bodhi the Weimerana, whom as you'd expect, has his own Instagram account or I'm travelling the world.
Largely self-taught, I learnt on the job and have been creating images for more than 26 years. I started off shooting professional sports back in the days of film (1993), supplying photos to magazines, newspapers and was the official photographer to the Cronulla Sharks Rugby League team for five years.
I'm passionate about all forms of photography and have my own studio in Tapanui, West Otago. Mostly I shoot commercial work for businesses and industry, advertising, websites and magazines - it's my full time gig. From time to time, I'm asked to shoot family portraiture, weddings, engagements, and sport. I am an accredited photographer with the NZ Cowboys Rodeo Association. I love it all - If my camera is in my hands I know 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.
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 an experienced journalist with qualifications in marketing, 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.
