About Motif Lifestyle Images
Hi - my name is Deborah and I'm the photographer, stylist, cook & chief dishwasher at Motif.
I specialise in product & lifestyle photography, with a particular passion (& taste!) for food photography, from my studio near the Christchurch CBD. Over the years I've worked with a range of amazing advertising clients, food manufacturers, and cookbook authors from around NZ and overseas. You can see some of their tasty images on my gallery pages.
To complement my photographic assignments I also provide styling services to my own clients, as well as other photographers and TV production companies. This has enabled me to build a large range of props and backgrounds to use on my photo shoots, and is constantly being added to whenever I see a "must have" prop. Needless to say the cupboards are full to overflowing!.
I've entered quite a few photographic competitions in my time as a photographer and have won multiple awards both in NZ & internationally. The high light being winning the 2006 NZ Advertising Photographer of the Year.
When I have some spare time I also write a food blog called ¿The Food Union¿, which is all about my experiences cooking and photographing food. I've included recipes from many of my favourite cook books and food magazines, as well as a few recipes from my foodie friends. Some are chefs and some are just fantastic cooks who love to play in the kitchen. Together I hope we've created a blend of foodie inspiration to go along with the images.
