Villa Maria CEO Sir George Fistonich

We are often asked to do magazine photography. In this instance, M2 Magazine asked us to photograph Sir George Fistonich, founder of Villa Maria Wines. I didn’t want to take Sir George in what would be a predictable shoot – stand between grape vines. Rather I went for a cleaner look. When shooting for magazines, it pays to consider layout and where type might go.  Continue reading “PHOTOGRAPHING SIR GEORGE FISTONICH”

Freestyle Event Photography were the official photographers for the ChoiceKids Christmas Party.

Northpower Christmas Party Photography

Northpower Christmas Photoshoot 1

One of our regular clients, Nothpower, had their Christmas party at the Vector Arena in Manukau City. This year, guests came with a masquerade mask, which added wonderfully to the atmosphere.

Freestyle Event Photography were asked by Multi Media magazine to do a fashion shoot for local fashion designers and retail outlet ‘The Cupboard’, located in Ponsonby, Auckland.

Man on the Street

We were asked by M2 Magazine to do a studio photo shoot for their Man on the Street series, which appears in their magazine. The editors select three men in business or the community and ask them questions like “What’s your morning routine?” and “What are the top three things on your bucket list?” It’s always interesting to read about how others manage and see their lives.
