About me

Tanya Paton

New Plymouth

New Zealand

I am a Freelance content and product photographer based in New Plymouth.

Working mostly with individuals, creators and small businesses, what I offer is high quality, brand consistent, content images for your website or social media pages.

This can be either product images or a more lifestyle look to show you and your product or service out and about in real life.

Portrait photography, outdoors in natural light, is also something I love to shoot, especially in some of New Plymouths gorgeous outdoor settings. 

So that could be headshots or a more Storytelling image.

I come from a fine arts background, painting large colorful canvases and selling in various galleries in the North Island.

About 12 years ago while living overseas I started an online fashion accessory business and picked up my camera to do my own product photography. Soon my business was taking up too much time to paint, but what happened was I re-discovered my love of photography.

The styling, photographing and editing was one of the most enjoyable facets of running my own business.

With the 2020 Covid issues  around international travel and shipping I decided to refocus from my Bali-based online fashion business to a content photography business and I couldn't be happier. Now I'm passionate about helping small businesses, creators, and influencers with quality photography for their advertising, websites, and social media
