TABITHA ARTHUR, PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER.
When people say to me "I cried when I saw my photos, I've never looked so good in a photo before!" – that's what makes it all worth it. That's why I do what I do.
Having your photo taken can be an experience many of us would rather not sit through. I understand this, and I strive to create an environment where people can relax and enjoy – yes, actually enjoy! – having their photo taken. Seriously.
I work to bring out the best in people. I look for your most flattering angles, and in super flattering light.
Specialising in portrait photography, I take industry-standard headshots for actors and contemporary portraits for creative professionals.
With a background in design and advertising, creative commercial work is a natural fit. The photography and design work I do for stage and screen is a joy – I love working with creative people!
I have over 10 years experience in photography. I also have a Masters of Theatre Arts in Directing from Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School, and Victoria University, a Bachelor of Design from Massey University, and a Diploma of Media Studies from Taranaki Polytechnic (now WITT).
My headshot here was taken by the lovely and talented Auckland-based photographer Andi Crown
