Hi! I’m Tash. Originally from Whangārei, I grew up on Roald Dahl, fish & chips and daydreams, and at some stage picked up a camera. Mum and Dad quickly tired of me blowing their film on out-of-focus shots of the neighbour’s garden, so for my 12th birthday bought me a plastic point-and-shoot from The Warehouse. That sucker kept me going until high school, when I started Photography class and upgraded to an SLR. I’ve been hooked ever since.
I’m captivated by humans, eternally curious and shoot in a documentary style, there to capture life exactly as it appears – raw, real and beautiful. I have always wanted to do that as authentically as possible, so don’t incorporate a lot of technical wizardry. I believe there is beauty in everything and every moment, and that’s the secret sauce that keeps me searching.
I live by the simple motto, It’s supposed to be fun. I prioritise love and play (and chips), and keeping the happy stuff paramount keeps me charged enough to lead a simple, electric life. As a kid, I always wanted to be an author and I still love writing today. I have a day job that keeps me busy from 9-5, and outside of that I read, climb rocks, try to surf, think about doing yoga (just think) and drink a lot of coffee. I have an awesome fiancé, Paul, who keeps me on my toes along with our dog Cana. We’re based in Auckland, spend a lot of time tiki touring around the North Island and are always keen to travel further.
What’s next? You tell me. No project’s too big nor small. Drop me a line and let’s create something cool together.
