Hello. I’m photographer Paul Petch, and I’ve provided an independent commercial drive focussed on outdoor sports, portraiture, events and lifestyle imagery since 2010.
I have a unique style developed as a lover of the outdoors (runner, cyclist, hiker, van lifer) and as a photographer for businesses for more than a decade. I’ve helped athletes, weekend warriors, event organisers, models and lovers of outside document moments, and share their messages for as long as I can remember. I also work alongside large global commercial brands to help sell their products.
My work has been published within many local and offshore publications, and from 2013 – 2018 I operated a New Zealand running brand/ collective called Good People Run.
I always strive to capture the connection between people, brands and experiences to their environment in a genuine way, and I’d love to work with you! While my photographic focus is mainly outside, I also work comfortably in the studio too.
