The current board consists of:
Ollie Dale FNZIPP I
Hi I’m Ollie. I like Star Wars. And Lego. Mostly Star Wars Lego.
I’m also the official photographer for the Auckland International Airport Ltd., where I spend up to two days a week creating both still, video and aerial content.
I was the NZIPP Auckland Chairperson in 2009-10, and on the Honours Council from 2010 to 2015. I’ve judged at NZIPP Iris Awards, and the AIPP APPA Awards. Next year I’m judging at the WPPI Awards in Las Vegas.
Now I’m President I suddenly feel the urge to build a wall, but until then I’m looking forward to pushing the NZIPP Brand in the community, helping to build the NZIPP membership around the country, assisting the new Events Team in their build up to Infocus 2018, and continuing to build relationships with current and potential sponsors.
Kaye Davis GM.NZIPP and Master of Photog. II (AIPP)
Chair of Honours / Board Director
My proudest moment in the NZIPP came in 2013 when I was awarded Grand Master of Photography, alongside being named NZ Professional Photographer of the Year. This the culmination of years of commitment, to an awards process I am truly passionate about, and years of continuted practice and learning.
Photography and NZIPP are a large part of my life and I’ve loved every step of the journey so far. No value can be placed on the incredible opportunities and amazing friendships gained along the way.
I’m a huge believer in “you get back what you put in to things”. As the current NZIPP Chair of Honours Council and representative on the NZIPP Board I’m hugely honoured to be able to contribute to such an amazing organisation as this and be part of shaping the direction of the organisation and photography in general within New Zealand.
Sarah McGregor MNZIPP II
NZIPP Executive Director
My name is Sarah McGregor, I am a Mother of 3 young children and based in the top of the South Island. I started my business as a photographer 6 years ago, as a way to work from home and provide an additional income to my family. I never knew where it would lead, but I never expected it would lead me here.
Joining NZIPP in 2014 was the single most valuable move in my career. I believe wholeheartedly in NZIPP and what it does for our industry, and I look forward to working as part of the team to keep moving our organisation in a positive direction.
