Why Choose Tania Niwa

COMPLIMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY CONSULTATION

At Tania Niwa Photographer’s peaceful studio, based in Brookvale, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches close to the North Shore, a complimentary photography consultation is just one of the many benefits in choosing a dedicated professional portrait photographer. Here you can discuss and plan your session with Tania. This is a chance for Tania to learn about your family and understand their special characteristics in order to capture their personalities at your shoot. This is also an opportunity to see examples of artworks on display to see what style and finish may suit your home.  View artwork product range here

  • #NorthernBeaches #Architect Michelle Walker #personalbranding #shoot at her newly #renovated #home

One of the things I really love about capturing personalised #business #portraits is working out the best way to tell a story about a person. 
I have carefully placed Michelle in between the hanging lights to feature as graphic elements using them as subtle leading lines through the image. I've continued the #red theme making use of her #Ipad in it's #red jacket. Resting her other hand on the red ladder helped add a relaxed feel.  As an Architect who is #artistic and #creative it is very important to show her hands which can help convey trust.

  • An awesome couple of days judging the NSW and ACT Aus Professional Photography Awards at The Rocks with my colleagues.  I walked away very happy with 3 Silver Awards for 3 portraits of 3 generations. 
This series was commissioned by my extended family in #Auckland to capture their dad Hoani Watino Niwa before he passed away. We are all so grateful we got to capture this series of family portraits, which are now treasured memories remembering this magnificent man. The image in his #VietnamVet uniform was used for his order of service.  Soon each of his 3 children will have a wall portrait on their walls. 
The centre portrait is of his youngest daughter and my incredible cousin, Erika Muna Lee (from my #ManaWahine series). To the right is Erika's daughter Te Manu who was 6yrs old at the time. Such a talented young girl - an incredible singer who loves to entertain and perform.

Now there is a new edition to capture.  Just after Erika's dad passed she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl Tumanako, who will grow up seeing these artworks incl one of her grand-dad, giving her a glimpse of his big hearted, loving personality and smile.
