About Me

Hi! I'm Emma

Me in action!

Life-long learner, nature lover and keen photographer - nice to meet you!

I've always loved getting out into nature and exploring new places - from my own backyard here in Aotearoa, New Zealand, to Iceland to Japan, there's so many fantastic, unique and awe-inspiring places to soak up and enjoy. And on all my adventures, there's been some form of camera in hand, disposal film, point 'n shoot or mobile phone, to try to capture the beauty before me! 

Approximately 4 years ago, I purchased my first DSLR, a Canon 800D. I'd aready completed a beginner photography course through my local night school and knew I wanted to capture dreamy bokkeh (which ironically, isn't actually something one tends to do much in landscape photography!) so I purchased a 50mm f1.8 alongside the kit lens. Dreamy bokkeh achieved!

Nowdays, I tend to shoot with my Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 and Sigma 70-200mm f2.8. I still 100% recommend the 'nifty fifty' for those starting out however - it is the best, cheap and cheerful (not to mention lightweight!) lens going around. 

To this day, I'm still shooting with my trusty 800D, although I'm hoping to upgrade to full-frame mirrorless camera one day soon. So do buy some prints or canvases if you like the look of them - all 'proceeds' go towards the Hisseye Photography equipment upgrade project ;)
