Hi, I’m Jess – I live in beautiful New Zealand but was born in Kenya and lived there for the first 10 years of my life. I have a love of all things nature – especially if the nature in question happens to have fur, feathers or scales!
I’ve been taking photographs for a fairly short time – got hooked playing with my fathers film SLR when I visited him in Scotland in early 2007. I came back and bought a Cannon EOS 400 DSLR, then started figuring out how to use it! Slowly getting the hang of it and finding there’s always so much more to learn, it’s great!
I wander around taking photos of just about anything that interests me, and occasionally get a decent shot :-P New Zealand is a great place for photography, it is a beautiful country so there are a lot of landscapes in here!
Hope you enjoy these, feel free to leave constructive criticism in your wake, it is very much welcomed. I’d love to do this as a living some day.

Deep, dark shadows that prevented any detail from being seen and horribly over saturated…. ugh… I have a question – do they look like that one here? I’m trying to figure out if the problem is with the screen settings on my computer or with the place that printed them (must be thier fault R…
