Esther’s imagery has grown out of a lifetime of capturing gentle beauty and experimenting with creative tools. She’s a sucker for sunshine (her favourite shooting conditions!) and looking for beautiful light. She loves to combine the magic of movement, action, people’s stories, and their passions: her work has a magical quality that others can’t emulate. Her signature style is recognisable for all of these qualities.

Esther produces images that transcend photography. Her work is photographic portraiture as beautiful art. She is recognised as one of New Zealand’s finest portrait photographers. She is a Nikon Ambassador for New Zealand (the only woman), and an Asukabook Ambassador for Australasia.

Esther is proud to be an accredited member of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP). She’s a double Grand Master of the NZIPP - one of only three in New Zealand. She has won oodles of awards (too many to count!).

She’s a big fan of creating her magic in camera rather than on the computer, using creative lenses, multiple exposures and an array of interesting tools to shoot through.

But you’ll never feel intimidated by Esther  behind the lens. And if you allow her to work her magic, the results will be breathtaking.

Esther Bunning Creative’ is a photographic portrait studio based in Greytown, Wairarapa, New Zealand offering photographic art of children, teens, families, women, and for creative projects.
