Hello, I’m Andrew Malmo. I live in Auckland, New Zealand.

Welcome to my website. To understand a little more about me, read on below. I write very occasional blog posts, have some cool photos in theĀ galleries, and am proud to show off my commercial work and theatre work too. Take a look around, contact me if you’d like to chat about photography, life, the universe… or offer me work.

I’ve been taking photos of one thing or another for over 27 years. I’ve had my own photography businesses, and have worked for others in many capacities in the photography industry in NZ. I also study at Auckland University, and work in the professional theatre industry in consultation, production and planning roles.

Before I could afford a camera I made one out of cardboard, and drew “photos” of my parents who patiently sat for my portrait sessions (disclaimer: I was only a wee little nipper at the time).

My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic which I bought second hand for twelve dollars, and as soon as I joined the workforce I rushed out and bought myself an entry-level single lens reflex camera – a Cosina CT1 Super with 35-70mm zoom lens.

I’ve shot weddings, events, sports, theatre shows, famous people, business people, trades people, little people, very little completely new people, old people, Prime Ministers, funny people, buildings, houses, art, products, food, landscape, awesome places in other countries, friends, family, cars, buses, trucks, pets and ginger beer.

I’ve never photographed under water, and clear plastic water bottles proved one of my most challenging assignments.

I love sharing my work, and my ambition for my photography, if I’m completely honest, is to exhibit my work and for people to have it in their homes, either as beautiful wall art, or as beautiful coffee table books. I love to exhibit my work, and hope to do more of that in the future (I have had four exhibitions in Auckland to date).

I hope you enjoy this gallery site. I love to receive feedback and am pro constructive criticism. If you have an interest in any of the work herein, or would like to talk about a possible job or collaboration, please send me a note using the contact form.

Thank you very much for visiting!

Yours,

Andrew
