I'm based in New Zealand. Originally hailing from the UK, I first moved to Queenstown in 2017, did a bit of hopping about for a while, but decided the mountains are now my home to stay! Dog obsessed, wannabe snowboarder, yoga hippie, plant mum, and on a mission to create beautiful images to promote brands who share Organica's values.
(Thank you to my good friend Melissa Clark Photography for the behind the scenes shots of me)
I started Organica Photography because I'm well and truly passionate about natural products! I do a little excited squeal inside when I look at a label, and all the ingredients are simple, yummy things like "almond oil" and I know exactly what that is, no Benzoflapalagans! As a bit of an eco warrior I always seek these kind of products out for my skin, hair, cleaning products, everything. Therefore at this time I am only working with brands who share this vision and ethos.
Of course I like to keep my style of shooting in keeping with the natural goodness in the bottle. I often use mother nature as the backdrop, or add in plants and textures that create an organic symbiosis, while visually telling the story of the product.
I find it sexy when a brand is actively promoting how sustainable and eco-conscious they are, we all need to play our part and work together with this goal in mind. If your company is rocking bio-degradable packaging, I might just have to buy you a beer! Or a Kombucha ;)
Organica has decided the best way to get involved, is to deliver all images digitally to clients, so there will be no carbon footprint from printing images. All booking forms will be completed online. And I have also set up a Photographic Studio to work from home, therefore minimising petrol emissions. If clients would like to use nature as the backdrop for their products, then I'm always keen for a hike, and of course always open to suggestions of how I can do better.
New Zealand is bladdy beautiful! So why not give the small companies who were born here a big old boost? Thankfully one of the good things to come out of Covid, is that people are waking up, and realising that we do need to support little local companies instead of massive brands! Let's all help each other out in this.
Every time you book one of my customisable packages, I will arrange for a complimentary tree to be planted to help offset the carbon emissions of our shoot. If you would like to add additional trees, just holla and I can add these onto your invoice at just $1.50 NZD each. Organised through One Tree Planted.
If all of this sounds like a bit of you, then please do feel free to drop me a line, don't be scared to say hi, I don't bite! Always happy to answer any questions big or small. Let me help you to get your Eco/Organic business looking good online, and promote you on your mission.

Such an amazing photographer. Really relaxed and stress free full day shoot.
Completely captured the soul of the product and staged everything to compliment the brand. Professional yet fun to be around 100% satisfied with the finished result. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to show off their brand in pictures.
Couldn’t be happier with the product photos Organica has produced for our company, we had an open brief and we’re completely blown away with the outcome of the photo shoot.
Cannot wait to work together again soon.
I’m so grateful to Kirsten for a wonderful shoot showcasing my new products. She’s clearly so talented and I couldn’t be happier with the photos.
She made me (and the dog models) feel so comfortable and I knew we were in good hands from the start. I can’t wait to work with Kirsten again!
I truly enjoy working with Organica photography. I love all the photos taken for my business which is all abut handmade products. All the photos is absolute reflection on natural and eco friendly products. Highly recommend And looking forward to work with them in the future again.
Kirsten has been wonderful to work with on the latest project with Kōaka Skincare. She has wonderful communication, and her photography was a great reflection of the brief we provided. Her photography exceeded all of our expectations, we're so grateful for the fresh content. Thank you Kirsten - we'll absolutely be using you again in the future!"
Loved the process of being photographed by Kirsten, she was so patient and proactive throughout the day.
The photos and video are amazing and perfect for promoting my art and business. Cant wait to do it all again. Thank you so much Kirsten.
Kirsten is a super skilled photographer, she made me feel comfortable and at ease. The shoot was fun and it felt great being just myself. I love the photos and textures, I really see myself and my values reflected.
