Talofa lava,  kia ora.

I’m a mum of three energetic school aged kids and live near Clyde in the heart of Central Otago, NZ. I’m an outdoor enthusiast and chose this amazing spot with my hubbie to raise our family upon returning home after several years overseas.

My career in sports administration took a back seat as a Mum but my photography career flourished.  I’ve been a photographer all my life and really discovered a passion for capturing the action taking photos of my kids playing sport.  I started to shoot professionally for NZ’s leading sports photography agency and expanded into other areas covering other events and commercial work often travelling to cover assignments.

To date, my work is often / has been  published in the NZ Herald, Newshub, Stuff, Otago Daily Times, Southland Times, Radio Sport NZ, Cuisine magazine and on One Network News and Sky Sport.

In the wake of COVID-19, I’ve set up a home studio and can help with any product photography as long as it can be couriered/sent to me, or as restrictions enable I’m happy to shoot on location.  

Feel free to check out who some of my clients are and what they have to say about my work  & working with me (and other photographers I sometimes collaborate with). You can also check out more info on the image central COVID-19 approach here.  Otherwise, if you have a project you wish to discuss please don’t hesitate to contact me phone 027 524 3518 or email clare@image-central.co.nz.
