Polynesians in New Zealand stock photography

PIXiPIC • 1 year ago

The lack of Pacific Island models in New Zealand Stock Photography has always bugged me. Polynesian people bring beauty and culture to our country and deserve to be celebrated and represented in our advertising market.

It was with this in my mind that I went scouting for a Pacific Island family to feature in my stock photography. Then...through my wife's dance school, I met the Havea family.

 

They are just about the most welcoming family you will ever meet. Their beautiful home, which I have featured in many of my stock photos, is filled with warmth and laughter. The laid back attitude of this family made for some great family shots.  For stock photography you want to capture everyday moments, and surrounded by this fun loving family there were moments aplenty.

 

Their three daughters, Natania, Emilee & Briana are great movers. On the dance floor they kick up a storm. They are confident performers, yet humble little girls. It's these personality traits that make them a dream to photograph. I have enjoyed many photoshoots with these three, who I am sure have a future in modelling ahead.

 

We continue to feature Pacific Island people in our New Zealand stock photography and hope someday to see the Polynesian culture fairly represented in NZ media.
