Hi, I’m HELEN OAKES a Photographer, Entrepreneur, Digital Artist, Blogger and Podcaster.
I’ve been a professional photographer since 2007 and I predominantly shoot LIFESTYLE, BRANDING, HEADSHOTS, SPORTS, SPORTRAITS and COMMERCIAL. It’s great being behind the camera but I love post-processing photos too, it’s where all the magic happens. I say Photography is one game and editing is another. Check out my work on FLICKR and in my photo GALLERIES.
I pride myself on my editing skills and I have created my own style using my custom made LIGHTROOM PRESETS and PHOTOSHOP TEXTURES. These are great tools for photographers, bloggers and graphic artists and are available from my SHOP. My ETSY store features inspirational quotes, landscapes and Kiwiana digital prints for purchase.
In the MODE DE VIE podcast I talk about travel, photography and anything on my mind. It is an open topic chat with myself and Danny de Hek from WHAT : DE HEK podcast.
I am embarking on running WORKSHOPS. Stay tuned as I will have downloadable information guides with useful tips. My BLOG provides a forum for photography, travel and all things I’m passionate about.
