Hi, I'm Greta, that's me in the middle with my husband Charlie and next to us are our two little boys Sol & Marlo and our wonder dog Hunter (she is a girl by the way). If I am not behind my camera or computer you will most likely find me at the beach with my family or at various food markets buying and eating fresh local produce (or photographing it). I am addicted to buying design and cook books, I spend far too much time on Instagram, I love cooking and eating out and if I don't get to leave the country and explore at least one time a year I can go a little crazy.
Another of my passions is "Kinfolk Magazine", I adore everything about this magazine and I am lucky enough to ne one of the New Zealand Kinfolk hosts for dinners and gatherings.
I studied photography and design and have spent my career time in both the fashion and photography industry. The skills I picked up while working in fashion; producing and designing ranges, directing fashion shoots, and traveling extensively to source product have all helped develop an eye for detail and a strong creative vision, which is now applied to my photography.
I adore shooting "real-life" and working in the beauty and unpredictability of natural light. I love hunting out simple moments, details, colours, tones and textures. It is these unassuming elements which often hold the most beauty and interest.
I am based between Auckland and Mount Maunagnui and I work as a freelance photographer on a variety of projects including editorial, book projects, food photography, a limited number of creative weddings, fashion and lifestyle photography. I travel (often) all over New Zealand, Australia, The Pacific Islands, Bali and further abroad to where ever I am needed. All locations and assignments considered...

Well I am sure there will be a few disappointed people around the Mount who were not at the beach when this gorgeous event was on. The Goddess paddle board race is an event to look our for! held annually in January in Mount Maunganui.
