Four decades ago Kodak was credited with building the first digital camera — an innovation that dramatically changed the world. It was a box the size of a small coffee machine with a cassette stuck to the side, and took 20 seconds to take an image, but it was the first of a seemingly infinite number of imaging tools which would find themselves in the hot, sweaty palms of billions of people around the globe. However the advance left behind a few casualties, with Kodak itself just one of them. Sometimes I wonder what Steven Sasson, its inventor, would have done had he known. Given that Kodak’s core business was selling film, the following few decades understandably proved challenging. After years of just staying afloat within a rapidly changing market, the company…

Each issue, we show off a selection of our readers’ images and the stories behind them. Use the hashtag #nzdphoto across Facebook or Instagram for a chance to be featured JEFF HARRIS FUJIFILM X100S, 23MM, 1/600S, F/5.6, ISO 400 In Sydney on business, Jeff was keen to break up the trip with some street shooting using his X100S. But it was just after he’d checked into his hotel, watching the world go by from a window, that he captured a frame with absolute finesse. Although it was Sydney’s spectacular sunset that first captured Jeff’s eye, he soon noticed some long, strong, and well-defined shadows moving rapidly toward him. They belonged to the day’s commuters making their way home; a steady stream of pedestrians that emerged from under the canopy of the building opposite.…

illuminating interventions

It has been two years since the historic adoption of the Paris Agreement, an international road map for mitigating and adapting to the challenges of climate change, and the issue remains one of society’s most pressing. Finding new ways to approach things in order to safeguard our planet calls for the kind of creative drive that fuels our most successful artists, and a pair of local creatives has devised a way to demonstrate that creative adaptability while putting environmental mindfulness in the centre of the viewfinder. Commercial photographer Vaughan Brookfield and event producer Tom Lynch have teamed up to create a series of images that combine high-end light projectors with resplendent environmental photography to craft a unique call for conservation. The Nameless project sees the pair using commercial-grade projectors to superimpose…

chasing elopements and tender moments

As two males working in an industry that leans heavily towards its female demographic, the photographers have found that their own style speaks to a segment of the population that isn’t as well served by the conventional approach Wedding photographers live in moments of connection, documenting both the ritualized and honest scenes of two people coming together in union. And how better to understand that process than for photographers to come together themselves, in creative union? That’s the collaborative spirit which has propelled local wedding brand Chasewild to rapid success. In just over two years, Cameron Thorp and James Broadbent have created an extremely popular wedding photography business under the Chasewild banner. Thriving in the dynamic energy that the name suggests, the duo are highly sought after for their authentic and adventurous…

a cause for paws

“It’s especially helpful for animals who may be less traditionally ‘beautiful’ and can struggle with finding homes; a great photo of them can really bring through their personality and appeal to adopters who may not have considered them otherwise,” Kelly says It’s a curmudgeonly soul who doesn’t enjoy a well-shot image of a cute animal. But a cute animal picture that could also save a life? That’s a real thing of beauty, the kind pursued by Waikato-based photography collective Pet Posse. Carol Howell, Kelly Wolfe, and Tara Sutherland are professional photographers who came together through a shared love of animals, working on various pet-photography endeavours. Individually, they are highly regarded animal photographers, and, collectively, they have hosted workshops and published an e-book as the Pet Posse. But the crew’s kindest work comes…
