Hi there, my name is Alisha and I am a photographer and designer based in Auckland, New Zealand. I have a passion for all things creative and pursued that passion with graduating with a Bachelor of Design (Graphic Design) in 2014 and a Post Graduate Diploma in Communication Studies focusing on Digital Media and Popular Culture in 2016 both from Auckland University of Technology and have been freelancing for three years. Here is a little bit about me.
Through my freelance career I have experience some exciting and unique opportunities. I have a passion for sport, especially Track and Field, competing myself for many years, being competitive at High School to now competing for fun. I have been lucky to merge my passion for sport and creativity, working with Athletics New Zealand straight out of my undergrad degree end of 2014 as a Graphic Designer, Photographer and Videographer, working on the major domestic events and major events including 2017 World Athletics Championships in London and 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
More specifically in Athletics, I have been working closely with New Zealand Pole Vault, not only as their Official Team Photographer, but also head of digital marketing and event management which includes unique events such as Vertical Pursuit 2017, which was a pole vault competition right in the heart of Auckland's Britomart Atrium, allowing the public to get up and close to the action, to really see how high our vaulters go. This progressed to 2018 instalment in Federal Street underneath the SkyTower with both events awarded with the Innovation Excellence Award at the 2018 Sport New Zealand Awards
Not only this but I have the privilege worked closely with Nike New Zealand, with being the Head Photographer for Nike + Run Club Auckland after being a pacer as well as the photographer for Nike + Training Club Auckland, photographing the action every week.
Aside from sports I have had the pleasure in working across other boards. I love capturing moments and have the pleasure in capturing memories while shooting weddings, engagement parties, and birthday celebrations. Aside from capturing the moment, I enjoy taking full control of creativity, from products and cuisine to capturing character in portraits.
