Kaye Davis is an internationally awarded photographer, educator and Accredited Member of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, with over 20 years of experience. She is a photographic
artist who uses the camera and digital darkroom as her medium for creative expression. “Photography for me, has always been about pushing the boundaries of what photography is or how it can be represented, by always trying to bring a different eye to the world around me.”

Creating photographic art provides an exploration, an interpretation and a voice to the beauty that she finds in nature. Kaye’s work includes portraiture, illustration, still life and landscape photography, creating beautiful, original and contemporary fine art pieces.
