I'm Christine Cornegé, a photographer living in the beautiful town of Cambridge in the Waikato region of New Zealand. 

I have over 15 year's experience as a photographer.

I started my career in the news industry where I was a newspaper photo journalist for nearly 10 years, employed by New Zealand's biggest media conglomerates.

During this time was able to develop a great grounding in all things photography covering everything from sport to breaking news. 

Throughout my career it has been the everyday people that I've met along the way that I have enjoyed photographing the most. 

I love to photograph everything and anything, it's that passion for capturing the moment that has led me to my freelance career photographing weddings, family portraits, editorial and branding projects. 

In the summer months you'll find me ringside at equestrian events across the country photographing competitors between riding my own horses in show jumping classes.

If you're looking for a photographer please don't hesitate to get in touch I'd love to hear from you and discuss your requirements.
