Kia ora! My Name is Louise Bockett. I am professional photographer based in Auckland, New Zealand
Mobile 027 681 9173
I have been taking photographs for over 16 years.
As well as being a professional photographer, I have worked as an Early childhood Educator for over 18 years.
I enjoy adventures and new challenges, in my spare time I'm either ocean swimming, mountain biking or out in the bush enjoying news trails.
My cheeky Cairn Terrier Lexi also comes with me everywhere I go she has been my shadow for the past 10 years!
I love the outdoors and taking photographs in natural surroundings, my photographic style is not posed rather relaxed and getting those special in between shots.
I enjoy taking photographs of people and unique quirky places in NZ, some of my favourite photographic works are in the Hokianga which means the returning place. As a child I always spent holidays in the Hokianga around Opononi and Rawene, both my uncles, aunties, and cousins lived here so It was great to have firsthand knowledge of the people, places and stories of the area. My photographic work of the area can be seen in the Documentary page.
A special body of works also close to my heart is of my Grandmother when she was 92.
Esma lived with my family for 5 years when I was at secondary school, and for my bursary portfolio she was my subject matter for the year. Each board has a theme from the start of life with old photographs transposed onto her face to the empty bed symbolising the end of life. I achieved a Bursary Scholarship mark of 90%. The whole series of boards can be seen in the Bursary Boards page.
I really look forward to working with you for a detailed description of each package please click the booking page.
