Photographer of South Island Rural landscapes and people

Bill Irwin

Happy Clients

The most rewarding part of my work is providing photography and service that is appreciated by people I work with. I've had some nice feedback, including:

Commercial shoot / tourism industry / marketing

We recently worked with Bill, to update imagery for our Lord of the Rings Tour. I found Bill very easy and enjoyable to work with and he fully understood our brief on the type of imagery we were looking for. We were extremely pleased with the result of the photos, and have received numerous comments about the quality of the images taken by Bill. We will definitely be working with Bill in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending him. - Mark Gilbert, Hasselfree Tours

Commercial Commission

“Having viewed some of Bill’s work and seeing his ‘eye’, I knew that he was a perfect photographer for what we required. His photos captured the essence of the farm and add real character and interest to the entry way.” Donna Weir, Donna Weir Design Ltd.

Multiple advertising photography commissions

I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with Bill on a number of projects and also license some of his work for projects. Bill is the consummate professional and continually invests in new technology and process knowledge to produce truly stunning work. - Colm McGrath, Concilio Marketing Agency

Beautiful photo shoots

Read this blog for one person's view of the experience being photographed by me.

'I had toyed with the prospect of having photos done so when I saw Bill's work I couldn't help but be intrigued. To say I was a little nervous would be a gross understatement but Bill, in his beautiful warm essence and calming presence made my leap from a bundle of nerves to photogenically calm seem so very easy. The pictures tell the story. Rather than glorifying to the point of unfamiliar Bill captured my very own essence. Bill is by far an exceptional artist and furthermore an exceptional individual who takes photos from the union of hearts... Between that of the photographer and that of the photographed.' Katie Marten ~ Newly inspired subject of Bill Irwin

WOW! That’s all I have to say! They are all simply amazing - Andrea

Working with Bill has not only been my most memorable and favourable modelling experience but also one that I was fortunate enough to learn and grow from. The passion and excitement that Bill brings to a shoot is one that can only be fully appreciated after working in his presence. Professional yet easy going, light hearted and confident – the outcome of each shoot with Bill has brought the greatest of pleasure and satisfaction. - Samantha

Custom prints on canvas

Thanks so much again. Prints were fantastic and will definitely get more prints in the future and have no problems recommending you to anyone. You've been great. Really quick, efficient and very helpful.- Nicola D.

I received the canvas this morning. Fantastic! It’s exceeded our expectations, thank you for all your work. - Lauren P.

We got the picture on Friday, wow looks great!. Were really happy with the finish, we've seen some around and the corners were all folded weirdly and not as neatly as yours. - Mike E

Hi Bill, thanks very much for my amazing photo, it's hanging on my wall in my room, and I can look at it or look out the window at the Thames. The book was a bonus, it's sitting on my recycled rimu coffee table. Thanks for a lovely work of art and a pleasant customer service experience. Best wishes Shiree
