Vanessa Wood

PHOTOGRAPHER

 TRANSFORMATION THERAPIST 

 DIGITAL ARTIST

Hi, I'm Vanessa. I'm a professional freelance photographer who specialises in fantasy portraits, transformational experiences, image retouching and digital artwork. I do both commercial work and private commissions.

 

Prior to becoming a photographer, I trained as a fashion designer and sold my two labels to boutiques around Christchurch and Auckland. I thoroughly enjoyed fashion, but the relentless demands of the industry took it's toll and after several years at the sewing machine, I was burned out. I decided to put my labels aside for a time and pursue my other passion - filmmaking.

I moved to Auckland and graduated from Unitec in 2001 with a Bachelor's Degree in Performing and Screen Arts. I entered the film & TV industry as a lowly camera assistant and exited some 16 years later as a director of photography. I still occasionally work on short films, music videos and TV commercials, but now I prefer the role of costume designer or wardrobe stylist.

 

2009 was a big year. I had my first child and started this photography company. Ten years later my life took another interesting turn when, out of the blue, I got a calling to pursue energy therapy of all things. Energy therapy was the 'missing puzzle piece' that made sense of my journey. Seeing the big picture of who I was meant to be was a profound 'ah-ha' moment. 

 

Having studied and practiced an energy therapy called Biofield Tuning, I discovered that my own energy sensitivity and empathic traits were not a disadvantage after all, but in fact very useful abilities for helping my clients become happier,  healthier and more empowered. 

 

We're all on a journey that will transform us many times before our lives are over and if we leave the door open to possibilities, we can be anything and everything we want.

Let the lens of fantasy provide you with a shift of perspective that opens the aperture of consciousness.

 

"When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I came to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent of absorbing positive knowledge."

- Albert Einstein, physicist and Nobel laureate. 

I look forward to meeting you.

Warmest regards,

Vanessa.
