Kiwi Pics was Founded by a Professional Photographer on the Kāpiti coast with over 30 years experience – from Weddings to Homes, Art to Portraits. With an entire team of passionate Photographers, you can trust that Kiwi Pics does things differently.

Our Mission

Real and Authentic Kiwi imagery right when you need it, at an affordable price.

We are based right on beach of the Kāpiti coast, approximately 50km’s north of the Capital city of Wellington in New Zealand. With a mission to provide Real and Authentic Kiwi professional imagery to all businesses in Aotearoa and beyond.

To achieve this we sell images, sourced fresh every day, from homegrown Kiwi talent. The finest hand-picked Photographers and Photo Agencies all across New Zealand.

We do things differently at Kiwi Pics and put our New Zealand based Contributors first. Once they have been Approved via our Quality-Controlled Registration process, they can earn an industry leading amount of up to 60% of every image sold. As a result, our customers can take pride in knowing that each and every Image they buy directly benefits them, their families and ultimately their Communities.

Kiwi-Pics was as an idea I had in 2018 and by Christmas 2019, together with Oliver Corby we set out to take it off the drawing board and on-line.

I am a photographer and a journalist with 30 years of corporate sales and marketing experience. Along the way I have produced news material, brokered commercial property, co-owned a radio station and published a book. I am currently working locally and have a studio providing photography solutions to business and private individuals.

The idea of setting up Kiwi-pics came from the fact that I am often asked to provide local imagery with “real” people from the New Zealand business community. Imagery with Kiwi signs, roads, cars and feel to go into marketing and brand material. When Oliver and I brainstormed I knew I had found the right fit for us to make it real. We only have one life – right?

Although born in Sweden, where I grew up and still spend a lot of time, I love New Zealand and what it offers. I also believe it deserves its own quality Stock library.

What say you? Are you in on the ride?

When Joanna approached me regarding the concept of Kiwi Pics, I’ll admit I was immediately sold. And not just by the idea but the person behind it. Joanna has experienced many successes over the years and when someone like that pens their mind to an idea – I knew I’d be a fool to miss out!

I have over 16 years of experience in IT. From Web Design & Development to Systems Architecture and Consulting. Being primarily from the Retail Industry (Luxury Perfumes & Cosmetics) I was confident I could commission a platform that would fulfill all of Kiwi Pics industry leading requirements and more.

As a keen Nature Photographer myself and married to a Wellingtonian, I love travelling all over the North & South islands to capture as many special moments as possible. My favourite being the Tongariro Alpine Crossing for its incredible palette, from rugged and harsh to tropical oasis, it never ceases to surprise me.

I intimately understand just how unique Photography is in New Zealand and proud to say no one else can offer what Kiwi Pics can, proudly Kiwi at it’s core with a strong sense of Community, whilst being so easy and quick to find exactly what you want… all without the cost, time and risks of doing a shoot yourselves.
