Nelson-Tasman-Motueka Commercial Photographer


I’m excited that you are here! 

I’m a passionate, professional commercial and portrait photographer, based in Nelson-Tasman-Motueka.
I live with my beautiful, entertaining, ever growing 5 children and our wonderful, endlessly patient, tech design/support, Indian Chef,ridiculously handsome, Mr. Navtej Dhillon. (You can read more about him in my blog)

Karaena vincent holding Nikon cameraNelson, our diverse business sector and the people who are the grit and soul of industry in our region never fail to inspire me.

I provide my clients with high impact, emotive and thought-provoking photographic imagery. These images are designed to hold attention and so are perfect for advertising and website content. I love working with light and shadow and the different ways that it can be used to tell a story, convey emotion and provoke further contemplation.

My product photography tastefully represents through beautiful imagery, the innovative products, passion and story behind these small to medium businesses. 

I admire designers, I am drawn to composition and how colour, texture, sound and shape, paints and impacts our culture and environment. 
I am honoured to meet and assist people from many walks of life in a variety of different and interesting regional business industries.

When I’m photographing I look for something relatable, I’m striving to show the relationships between people, objects, products and their environments, how they fit or stand out, their unique story and what this reflects about them to the world.
I would be honoured to work with you on your next project! Just put your details in the contact form below and I will be in touch to discuss how we can bring your business imagery to life.
