About Rachael:
“I have a very curious nature, which means I am constantly open to learning. I’m an Ilford Master, Sony Digital Imaging Advocate, current member of the NZIPP Board and NZIPP Master of Photography I. I am also a practicing artist, and have Master of Fine Arts in Contemporary Art.
I am a strong advocate of the printed image. I believe images need to be printed to close the circle from concept to capture, to completion. The tangibility of a print is integral in my art practice. I find the range of print media available really exciting and love testing out new products.
I find printing a useful tool during the image creation process as well as for delivering a completed work. Printing for yourself gives you complete control of the finished image, from the immense range of media options, to the thrill of watching the image come to life as a ‘real’ object.”
