My first NZ Billboard: SKYCITY Auckland

Last week my first billboard went up in Auckland – a very proud moment for Shaun Jeffers Photography! I thought that this would be a good opportunity to explain my work process when I am on a job for a client. I’ve been working with SKYCITY for just over a year now so when they brought me onboard for this project I wanted to do something a little different. Luckily enough the advertising agency, Colenso BBDO had the same idea – they wanted something that had never been seen before, something that was going to make people stop and look. …

New Zealand Landscapes: Tekapo to Milford Sound

My trip to the South Island was primarily to shoot for Jucy Rentals (see blog) however it also served another purpose. After spending 9 months in Auckland, a trip back to the South Island was definitely needed. As much as I love Auckland, I came to New Zealand for the epic landscapes (you know, the ones you see in Lord of the Rings). I needed to reignite my love for New Zealand and prove to myself why I have decided to live here for a few more years. 9 days later I have successfully achieved that, this country never ceases to …

See you around Freeman! (That's his name)

Cruising the South Island with Jucy Rentals!

What an awesome 9 days with Jucy Rentals! It’s been great to do some photography for such a prestiges rental company. As many people will tell you, the best way to see New Zealand is in a campervan. Travelling in a camper gives you so much freedom and flexibility, there are so many hidden spots that you can visit and explore in your own time. I wouldn’t travel any other way! I am lucky enough to have travelled the South Island on multiple occasions but this was my first experience with Jucy. After landing in Christchurch and picking up our …

Shaun Jeffers Photography Westhaven Harbour Bridge Dusk

Auckland Harbour Bridge

So after weeks of failed attempts I finally took a good shot of the Harbour Bridge down at Westhaven. Client is happy, I’m happy. Sorted! The shot, along with a couple of my other photos will feature on the new Gaulter Russell website. Gaulter Russell is a company based in Parnell, Auckland specialising in sales and marketing recruitment – it’s great to be working with them and I look forward to finishing off their staff portraits this week. After heading out at least twice a week for the past 5 weeks and coming back with nothing, I had lost a little motivation. …

Piha Auckland Shaun Jeffers

The West Coast… My favourite part of Auckland!

I’ve lived in Auckland for just over 8 months now and I’ve been making a conscious effort to photograph as many different places as I can. As much as I love photographing the city, my favourite place to shoot has to be the west coast! Piha, Muriwai and Bethells are all part of the rugged west coastline – probably one of the best coastlines in the whole of New Zealand! As you can see from the photos, it’s a pretty epic place. I love it! As usual I am behind on my blogs! I have been mostly shooting portraits over …
