Hi I’m Jenny, I live in a small town in the South Island of New Zealand, a lovely place called Geraldine.
I am an amateur photographer, I love photography and look forward to when I can slow up with my job to devote some more time to it. There is so much I want to learn and try in this wonderful world of capturing images.
Mostly I just really enjoy the way the world is much more interesting and amazing when you learn to see things with a photographer’s eye.
And when you capture that special photograph, there’s a little piece of you, your creative soul, your thoughts and feelings, captured for all time too.
I’ve always had a camera in my hand….even when I was in primary school I had my Kodak Instamatic never far away. Some of those early shots are still favourites of mine.
My first job was in a photography lab which I loved and now wish I’d stayed at much longer to learn more, but…..I didn’t.
In more recent times, after becoming frustrated with the limits of my digital point and shoot cameras, I finally moved to a digital SLR.
I now use a Canon EOS 50D and a Canon G12 camera with a few Canon lenses, tripod and remote shutter release cable. I’d love more gear but that’s not in the budget just yet.
I hope you enjoy taking a look at some of my work.

29 MINERS DEAD / *The news this afternoon that our 29 trapped miners are believed to be dead after another massive methane gas explosion ripped through the Pike River mine on the West Coast is absolutely devastating. There has always been that glimmer of hope that somehow all or some may have survived the initial blast last Friday. Now that hope has gone as they say that nobody could have surviv…
