Hi I'm Laurie!


I'm Laurie Winter. I am a photographer based in Wellington, New Zealand. This blog will be to share some of my photography adventures, my highlights and favourites, and sometimes just general thoughts about photography. If you have something specific you want to know about how I do my photos, please just ask!

I love landscape photography and am happiest out shooting New Zealand's awesome and diverse scenery. I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures, but until a couple of years ago it was always in auto mode. In 2015 I purchased a mirrorless camera and I committed to learning how to use it properly, with the goal of capturing images like the ones I have always admired from other photographers. It quickly became a passion and over the last two years I have fallen in love with the art of photography.

I love mountains, lakes, the coast and New Zealand's bush, and I have a bit of a penchant for reflection shots. I enjoy creating images from my interpretation of what I see in front of me. In particular I enjoy the long exposure genre, and am also not afraid to shoot in the middle of the day, as well as at dawn and dusk.

I shoot mostly with my Oly OM-D mirrorless cameras, a variety of M.Zuiko Pro lenses and NiSi neutral density filters for long exposures. I do my post processing in Lightroom, using a colour accurate monitor.

Outside of photography, I'm a mum to two young boys (Jackson and Ollie), am married to Matt (who loves the outdoors as much as me!), and work part time. I create images when I can find the time to get out and about on adventures, between Matt and I our diary can be totally crazy. This site is a collection of my favourite photos, and I'll also be sharing some of my adventures with you in the Blog section. For any questions, or to order prints, please contact me through this page. You can also follow my photography on Instagram and Facebook - links are on the right-hand sidebar.

I hope you enjoy my blog! Please visit my website to see all of my photos.
