Aoraki Mt Cook

My photography tours are packed full of imaginative, creative, and fine art nude photography. Three full days emersed in photo shoots and post processing, away from life’s distractions, helping to unlock my student’s imagination and create award winning images.

Based in the Mount Cook region in the South Island of New Zealand, I spend my spare time with my family, enjoying the beautiful lakes and scenery we have on offer here. All other spare time is spent honing my craft as a photographer.

About Me

I’m Shelley Harvey, a National and International award-winning professional photographer based in Twizel, New Zealand

In the seven years I have been involved in my passion, photography, I have learned to appreciate the people I interact with, whether they are my models, clients, or my students – to watch them evolve and learn about themselves through the art of photography is what inspires me the most.

I am a national and international award-winning photographer. As a trained makeup artist and hairdresser, I enjoy being able to bring my creative visions to fruition. My computer is my darkroom, where my imagination can run wild and create the extraordinary from the ordinary.
