Bio: BRANSGROVE has over 30 years’ experience in the photography industry and holds a Bachelor of Design and an Honours Degree in Photography. She flourished as a photographer in New York, developing her penchant for shooting the weird and wonderful at fashion weeks. 

After photographing a series of artistic portraits in 2003, she was awarded Metro / Canon Young Photographer of the Year award in 2004.  Returning to New Zealand, her photographic interests shifted from predominately portraits, to the natural surrounds, leading her to present them at Te Ao Tūroa exhibition. 


“I’m interested in exploring nature in its finest detail and using photography to bring inspiring moments to life. My goal with Te Ao Tūroa is to express the beauty we sometimes miss in nature – to bring these magical moments to life for the viewer.”
