My passion for photography came to light when I was 15 years old and began experimenting with the process of developing photos in a dark room. It was at that moment that I discovered my passion for encapsulating real life in the art of film, a passion which only continued to grow as I did. Since that pivotal moment in my youth, I have been ardently working within the field. After pursuing studies in Applied Arts (Nantes, France) and Graphic Arts (Quimper, France), I began my professional career within photography as a photojournalist for Boston’s Canton Newspaper in the USA, acting as a mirror to the world. Aspiring to develop my technique and expertise within photography, I then furthered my studies at RMIT in Melbourne, Australia where I won two greatly prestigious awards for my work (Victorian Photography Student of the Year, 2001 - Gold and Silver awards). In 2015, I started my photography business in France, and then at the end of 2017, I moved to Australia with my three children and my Australian husband to begin our new chapter here.
I studied History back in my University time, but besides my major study, I joined a documentary filmmaking course taught by a local veteran producer. That was when I started to discover my interest in videography and photography. Once graduated in 2008, I saved most of my salary from my first job and bought my first ever camera. I became more addicted to photography, and especially family photojournalism, because it has the magic to freeze a moment and tell a great story. Thanks to another experienced teacher, I was able to learn from him more advanced photographic techniques and philosophy, and gradually I have engaged myself with wedding and family photography.
Kia Ora - hello! I'm Liz, a documentary wedding and family photographer based in beautiful Christchurch, New Zealand. I grew up in sunny Sydney, Australia, and all of my extended family are there, but my husband and I, along with our 4 kids, have called New Zealand home for the past decade. I have loved photography for as long as I can remember, receiving my first film camera as an 8-year old I grew up behind the lens, but my greatest love is people. People are simply fascinating! Being a sociology student also helped to foster my love for the uniqueness of the human spirit and to hone my observation skills. I am passionate about telling personal stories through photography as a medium, there is so much depth that can be seen and felt through a simple gesture or a facial expression that words alone could never express. I love working with all types of kids and families, having been a parent since 2005, there's nothing I haven't seen before! I also love to work with special needs families to tell your beautiful stories too. In 2019 I was showcased at the Elevate and Grow photography exhibition in Austin, Texas. I love to travel so please get in touch even if you are outside New Zealand. I visit Australia frequently and I have family and friends in all states so I'm happy to travel anywhere. I'm so looking forward to connecting with you, let's grab a virtual (or real) coffee and chat. I can communicate in French and NZSL (New Zealand Sign Language) also - which shares similarities with BSL and Auslan. If you are deaf and interested in booking with me I would love to connect with you via Glide or Zoom. Arohanui.
