There is only one professional qualification for photographers in New Zealand – the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP).  NZIPP members go through an accreditation process and must meet stringent membership criteria.

If you want to make sure you choose a Professional Photographer, make sure you LOOK FOR THE NZIPP LOGO and choose an ACCREDITED professional.

NZIPP members follow a Code of Ethics and must act professionally in their creative and business practices.  With 150 accredited members across three different photographic categories, you can find and book a professional photographer through our member directory.

Using an Accredited Professional Photographer means that:

  • You are working with a professional who has been through our accreditation process.
  • You are working with a professional photographer who is bound by our Code of Conduct.
  • You are working with a professional photographer who is a member of the only professional photography body in New Zealand.
