Jonny Scott

Lifestyle, fashion and commercial photography

For Jonny, photography is a tradition his grandfather and father passed down through an old film camera. His love for photography grew from capturing his family's most meaningful moments: christenings, birthdays and anniversaries. His professional career has seen Jonny published in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle and Together Journal. As well as photography Jonny loves to travel, which wouldn't be the same without his wife Pia and their two children.

These days, Jonny focuses on his family, his career and what matters to him most. His craft is to express, timelessly, the bonds of love we share and celebrate on the days that define us.

Helen Manson

Humanitarian and Travel Photography.

A bit about: Helen is a multi-award-winning Kiwi humanitarian photographer and storyteller. Her work has taken her around the world to some of the most challenging environments documenting famine, refugee settlements, post war environments, child sponsorship, micro-enterprise, trauma counselling
and disaster zones.

Inspiration: “The beauty of any journey worth taking is that wherever you get off the plane
you’ll see much that is wonderfully strange and much that is endearingly familiar. I hope my photographs break down the barrier between “us and them, there’s only ever been us.”

George Botha

People, Landscapes, sport, Ocean, wildlife and Aerial with a different perspective.

I love photography as it is more than just pushing a button and hoping for the best. Photography is art, an art that brings life to a moment and captures a moment that would have just been otherwise forgotten. Photography is not just something I do; it is part of who I am. From a very young age having a camera in my hand just felt right and gave the world a whole different perspective that I wanted to keep exploring.
George is an award-winning photographer, his work has made it into some of the world's top photography magazines, and clients around the globe have commissioned photos of his.
