THE SPIRITUAL LANDSCAPE
Hi, I’m Wendy,
Born in New Zealand to Dutch parents, I was bought up on an isolated farm next to the most beautiful town of Kaikoura, where the grand mountains fall headlong into a rugged coastline.
I believe this outstanding landscape shaped my passion for life and photography.
I am married and have three children and seven grandchildren. Today half our life has been spent in New Zealand and the other half in Australia. Both landscapes provide me with varied and amazing opportunities to photograph.
Unfortunately, I cannot travel to all those wonderful and exotic locations, Algieria, Morroco, the Sahara, Greenland, Africa, Peru, the Antarctic... to get that special shot. I must be content with my doorstep, which to date has kept me very occupied! When I am out capturing the ebb and flow of the earth close by, I find my limitless imagination takes me to those exotic places without the plane travels!
The spiritual aspect of the land and life is what posseses my thoughts and allows me to create.
What I do:
*I blog weekly on self help for everyday life and spirituality.... and I truly hope my images and writings will inspire you to take hold of your dreams.
*Most, if not all my photographs in my gallery are for sale. Simply message me using my CONTACT PAGE
*I have written a number of adorable children's books illustrated using my own photographic images, which you can buy through my gallery.
*I have one or two art exhibitions each year. Details will be on my NEWS page.
FROM MY PEN
The tools of the trade.
You have to seek out adventure, it wont just come to you.
I love white boats and wild seas.
I dream of a home by the sea and a caravan for weekends.
It's OK to be a bit weird, people appreciate you much better if you are authentically you.
If you see something amazing, STOP and take the shot, it will never be quite the same ever again.
If I'm not at home, I'm either on my bike or lost in a field.
My most loved days, above all else, is the days I spend with my children, grandchildren and family.
I tell myself there is always something good ahead, just keep looking and keep walking.
