Whether you’re an enthusiastic weekend snapper or a beginner who wants to learn more about photography, New Zealand Photographer is the fun e-magazine for all Kiwi camera owners.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE ADVANTAGES ARE

OF BEING A FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHER?

I think that the camera is a creative tool without a

gender bias; technical skill, imagination and creativity

are what make great photos. That said, some of

my greatest inspiration has come from women

photographers, especially Annie Leibovitz with her

celebrity portraits, street photographer Vivian Maier, and

the Depression-era photojournalist Dorothea Lange.

HOW HAVE YOU BENEFITED FROM BEING

PART OF LESLEY WHYTE’S WOMEN IN

PHOTOGRAPHY, WHY IS BEING PART OF AN

ALL-FEMALE GROUP IMPORTANT TO YOU?

Any group that generously shares knowledge and

experience provides a stimulating environment for

its members. Being involved with Lesley Whyte’s

Women in Photography has been a great boost

for my confidence as a photographer. This diverse

group of women photographers is always positive

and encouraging and friendly. Lesley, our esteemed

leader, is dedicated to improving our skills and

is always coming up with new ideas for weekly

challenges, workshops, trips and fun – always fun.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THE

FUTURE, PHOTOGRAPHY WISE?

I always have a list of things I want to do – learn more

about photo editing, get my photos organised, do

more courses, etc, etc. But mostly, now, I would love

for my worlds to collide and that my writing skills,

passion for photography, and love of languages will

lead to more travel and some opportunities for some

paid travel journalism jobs.

ANY INSPIRING WORDS TO LEAVE US WITH?

My mantra is “Take the photos that please you. Have

fun and love what you do.”
