A to-do list 30 tasks long, constantly thinking of personal projects you want to work on and complete, as well as factoring in time to see family and friends — does this sound familiar? The life of a creative is hectic but incredible. Unlike many other jobs, it’s nigh on impossible to just tick off your daily tasks, go home, and be content — more often than not, you’re already conjuring up your next project or shoot or an event that you want to bring to fruition. What also comes with this creativity is the need to be incredibly self-motivated. In this world of creativity, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who will hold your hand all the way and tell you what to do next to reach your goals —…

Speaking of photography’s duty to capture a moment before it vanishes, Henri Cartier-Bresson once cautioned, “We cannot develop and print a memory.” But we can certainly give it a go, as Auckland photographer Russ Flatt has made beautifully clear over the last few years. Flatt, a highly regarded fashion shooter, recently turned his attention to art photography, with a series of personal projects mining his childhood memories to produce arresting phototableaux.

Established in 2011, the Annual Commission was the first, and is the only, award of its kind specifically for photography-based artists in Aotearoa. Recipients are commissioned to create new work that is unveiled during the…

patience is key

While speaking on the phone with photographer David Hallett, mid conversation, we were interrupted by squawks so loud that his voice was drowned out. The raucous note was from a blackbacked gull and its mate, banging against Hallett’s window. Of course, they know Hallett is a bird lover, and they were just doing what they’ve done for the past five years: entering his kitchen and making themselves at home. They are only one of the 125 bird species Hallett has painstakingly photographed in the wild — across the breadth of the country — and featured in his latest beautiful book, Native Birds of New Zealand. Photographing in the bird’s natural environment, Hallett will stand in cold water juggling camera gear for up to four hours or wait, confined in a camouflage hide,…
