Light Nelson 2018

Creatives join forces to bring us a world class event in Nelson on a dark winters night. Light, music, mystery and fun, I was there to capture some of it with the camera. 

In a collaboration of art, science and technology, many artists have let their creativity loose through a range of innovative media including laser technology, digital imagery, performance and music with high levels of interaction and surprise for the viewer. - Light Nelson

Vienda Maria

I recently met inspiring writer, and mentor Vienda Maria who I  had the pleasure of photographing on a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon in Nelson. 
 

A little about Vienda as spoken from her heart...


"I teach women who want to do great things in the world, how to choose freedom in life and work. This isn’t about the fantasy — it’s about the beauty in the freedom to design our own reality.

We all have a story to tell. But instead of getting wrapped up in the story, what is truly breath-taking and inspiring is what we do as a result of our story. My story led me to have a profound fascination with freedom.

Growing up, all I ever wanted was freedom. Freedom to be, say, think, do, feel and choose. And so I spent my entire adult life dedicated to creating a life of freedom.

And as I have looked for freedom in my work, in my lifestyle, in my relationships, in myself, I have discovered one vital thing.

Freedom, true freedom, comes from within."

- Vienda Maria - as quoted from her 'About' page at her site

We started our shoot inside and then headed out side for the sunset, I was on a natural high photographing Vienda - her free spirit is contagious!
