Work With Me

I am a 24-year-old Austrian-born travel photographer based in New Zealand. I like to tell stories and my camera is my go-to medium to do so. I also write, speak, consult and do other fun things within the worlds of content creation, creative direction and visual storytelling.

It is my mission and greatest privilege to inspire to explore. Explore new places, more about oneself and notions of sustainability.

Let’s Create Magic

No, seriously! I am guessing you would have spent a couple of minutes on my Instagram or blog by now. And if that is the case, you know that I believe in finding beauty and chasing the light. Beauty in nature, oneself, sustainability, countries far and near; you name it. My passion for learning, exploring, taking risks and being my truest self come to light every now and then on this thing called social media. Well, it does most days, but you know – a millennial does what a millennial has got to do.

If the idea of capturing beauty, adventure and personality speaks to you and your brand, I want to hear from you.

Social Collaborations

I accept new partnerships on a limited but rolling basis. Such partnerships offer packages consisting of sponsored posts on my social channels and website, photo selects and/or other writing and media projects. I do no offer free promotion in return for product and I place tremendous value on brands that encourage adventure and sustainability. Please write to my wonderful agent Julie on julie@johnsonlaird.co.nz if you would like to have me tell a story about your brand.

Photography

One of my favourite quotes goes something like this: the heart and mind are the true lens of the camera. I start every photography project with that in mind. Whether you are a blogger, a business owner, a couple, an event manager, a family, or simply a lovely person who would like lovely photos of yourself, I can help. I offer custom-made photo packages to suit your needs. To give you a rough idea, my rates start at $ 395 per session including 30 high res, edited images.

Writing

All of my writing is underpinned with meaning, research and a sense of exploration. Whether that is on mindful living, new camera gear, travelling the Philippines or finding the best vegan pizza in Italy. This blog loosely acts as a living portfolio of my most recent work. Take a look around and see what you think.
