About Gwenda Harvey


Hi, I am a B2B  photographer based in Tairawhiti Gisborne, located in the Albert building at 18 Peel Street.   I help business owners to sell products and increase sales by using the right images to showcase your product and services in the right way. I love using my photographic skills to help tell your stories and capture that special moment. The perfect images will showcase your business,  products or services to their full potential. This really excites me, and I look forward to working with you.

My background

I was brought up in Waikato and as a somewhat awkward teenager decided to become the person behind the camera. Later on I worked for a few companies around New Zealand specialising in family portraits. After moving to Melbourne for four years and later to Queensland for 10 years, I felt the pull of family and moved back to New Zealand. Gisborne is where I have settled to raise my two boys aged 6 and 11.  My interests include holidaying and travelling with my boys, recreational water sports, and restoring furniture - which is a very new hobby. 


Helping the community

It is important to me to help community causes so I give back by doing photo-shoots or digital editing. These have included working alongside the Gisborne Aviation Museum who are digitising local artist Graeme Mudge’s artwork by retouching images that will be made into postcards for sale at the museum. Also ‘Hear for you’ https://www.facebook.com/Hear4uProject/ which supports depression and suicide prevention of men to raise money through Movember Wreaths. I photographed men with the wreaths in studio-based surroundings. 

Future Services 

As well as helping local businesses with their business growth I would love to expand my business to attract more out of town, national and international companies to access my services, and to utilize Gisborne's many assets, especially if you’re a manufacturer sending your products to me or travelling to Gisborne to be photographed. I can make your photographs pop. For example, if it is a nice food platter or requires a consistent style for your products, images that are captured under studio lights, this is more appealing regardless of the weather outside. My vision is that in the future you will travel to Tairawhiti, Gisborne to experience my photography services and discover the unique natural environment that’s right in my backyard. 


I look forward to building your business one photograph at a time.
