Photographer & Founder
Coni is a Tauranga-based professional photographer who loves nature, hiking, and travelling. Her combined passions took her across Asia to pursue creative photography projects that were subsequently exhibited in New Zealand.
An experienced instructor with a teaching background and a bachelor’s degree in primary education, Coni founded The Wanderer Photographer to share her years of experience in photography with those keen to learn.
Coni currently offers workshops and private lessons in the Bay of Plenty, aspiring to create a welcoming community for all photographers to encourage and support one another, regardless of their skill level or experience.
Photographer | Founder | Tutor
Coni runs or/and organise most of the workshops in Tauranga, she loves planning events and bringing people together. She believes that we learn better by doing and experiencing new things as well as interacting with others with the same interests, that’s why the workshops have been designed to deliver the best learning environment where everyone feels relaxed and welcome.
Coni loves adventure and she usually mixes it with photography assignments and workshops too. She is the kind of photographer that starts hiking at 2:00 am to get to the summit at 6:00 am and deliver the photos with the best light. She also does these kinds of crazy adventures for her own photography! Showing adventure, perspective and the beautiful world we live in are the things that she wants to transmit through her photography work.

Yohanes is an engineer and a freelance photographer. He is passionate about landscape and portraits, and loves to share his passion and knowledge about all aspects of photography.
He started photography as a hobby with a tiny point and shoot camera, and slowly worked his way up as he built his skills to shoot manually in different kinds of light and situations.
Photographer | Tutor
Alicia is a qualified veterinary nurse that arrived from South Africa in 2018. Her love for the outdoors made her fall in love with New Zealand’s natural scenery.
Being an avid hiker and camper, Alicia enjoys landscape photography (long exposures being her absolute favourite!), Astrophotography (you’re never too old to learn something new… 😉) and dog agility (who doesn’t like to see dogs having fun?!). She’s always keen for an adventure and even better if it’s with people that enjoy photography.
