Selwyn is a super talented and intensely passionate fellow. Majoring in Film making at Ilam, he’s also an actor, advocate of Mens mental health and numerous other worthwhile endeavours. You guessed it, we met at Ilam back in 2018, and Selywn just turned 21 and reached out to find out how much I charge for portraits on film. He wanted a set of images that would capture this very special milestone in his life, and also a printed gift to his Mother. Of course i offered the shoot to him as a 21st birthday gift at no charge!
We met at Waikuku Beach, that’s about 30 mins outside of Christchurch and what a spectacular place to take it all in! There is sandy beach as far as the eye can see as well as forest, sand dunes and marshland full of bird life. We were also blessed with a spectacular sunset that seemed to radiate 360 degrees.
