Tamahere photographer Clare Gordon has come up picture perfect in the Wedding Industry Awards.
At an awards ceremony in Rotorua tonight, the Newell Rd resident won the award for Outstanding Photographer for a stunning portfolio (see here).
Gordon, who has a Diploma in Photography from The Photographers Institute of NZ, says she was motivated to get the qualification because she did not have enough quality images of her two children as they have grew.
The hard work paid off. She now runs a successful engagement, portrait and wedding photography business from her home studio.
The Wedding Industry Awards have run since 2014 and so far are a regional event covering Rotorua, Bay of Plenty, Central Plateau, Waikato, Hawkes Bay and Coromandel. They aim to be nationwide by 2018.
