James Allan

Kia Ora! I’m an award-winning photojournalist, commercial and events photographer operating out of Queenstown, New Zealand. I travel the country working on commercial and events photography as well as the odd news story.

It started with a trip to the World Rally Championship with Dad when I was just 16 years old. I took photos of my favourite cars and my friends and family loved the images, so I started carrying a point-and-shoot camera around with me. A few months later, an image of my friend mountain biking on Treble Cone, Wanaka, earned me first prize in a competition run by Stuff.co.nz – New Zealand’s number one news site. I won a flashy Canon DSLR and my passion for photography was cemented.

More than a decade later, I’ve won a string of National and International awards and prizes and have worked for a range of top media outlets as well as private clients.

My love of photography comes from an obsession with capturing natural moments which sum up a situation or event. From conferences and marketing images to sports teams and athletes, I’ll capture that quintessential moment for you.
