We have recently opened a new workshop and gallery In Ranfurly, Central Otago.
The new workshop and gallery space is is a character shop on Ranfurly’s main street. The main driver for relocating to a new space was to get a more “fit for purpose” workshop space to satisfy the growing demand for my framed fine art prints. I was working in my partner’s garage but as my business grew we were having issues getting the boat and the old car out!
The new premises will be primarily a workshop and an outlet for selling my framed fine art photography and fine art prints. I will continue to operate my pop up gallery at selected art fairs and market days. I have learnt a lot from market days that I can put into practice at the new gallery. I am also continuing my career as a professional commercial and portrait photographer. This will mean that the opening hours for the new gallery will need to be a little flexible to accomodate photographing more beautiful images, operating as a professional photographer and taking care of my family. To help with out of hours coverage my work will still be available at The Practice, Ranfurly, where Amie Pont carries a full catalogue.
I would really like to especially thank my partner Deane (the creator of the beautiful timber counters and screens) and the small army of people who have helped establish the new space.
Having a space for my work and being able to be more organised about making great quality images from Central Otago is something I have long held a vision for in my career path and business. Now that we have established a great working environment, I am looking forward to producing new and exciting work.
