A natural creator since she was a child, Virginia first craved to be a fashion designer, but her doubting parents made her do food science instead. Undaunted, she funnelled her creative energy into creating and marketing new food products, but soon found herself in a boring corporate rut, so broke free to find her creative force again. She threw in everything to pursue her love of photography, and since then has travelled the world seeking adventure - her commitment to tell stories through her lens. Her career has seen her photograph luxury resorts in Fiji, fight off the advances of a Papua New Guinean chief who needed a fourth wife, eat pig entrails in Japan (followed by lots of sake), and her favourite experience so far - sleeping under the stars in the Sahara.
Adventure energises her.
Based out of sunny Nelson New Zealand, she lives on a green hillside, bathed in natural light with an ever-changing view of the sea, and travels for a taste of excitement and exploration.
She loves photographing people, places, and capturing the stories she finds.
