About Janyne

 

 I have been photographing professionally for over ten years. Professional photography in Central Otago is a privilege. Not only is the scenery awesome but I have met many inspiring and interesting people through my work.  Together with my fiancé Deane I go on all sorts of photographic adventures in beautiful Central Otago, New Zealand.

I have won a number of awards for my photography including a prestigious gold and gold distinction award at the national NZIPP Iris Awards. I am a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photographers and a qualified commercial and portrait photographer with the Institute.

In partnership with Deane, I have recently established a picture framing business (“Central Otago Picture Framing”) to provide framing for the art photography for sale on this site and take private commissions.

Recently I decided to share more of my award winning work with a wider range of people by developing this online store.
