My name is Sue Shepherd - I live in Whangarei New Zealand. I have been a passionate photographer for many years. I love photographing children, landscapes, people, and sport - particularly hockey. I have also supported many charity groups and some authors by helping them to ensure a good record of events they are involved in.
In recent years my husband and I have travelled to many interesting and inspiring countries. In August 2015 I visited Iceland with three top Australian photographers - Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt and Christain Fletcher - this was a trip of a lifetime.
In November 2017, I travelled to Japan with Mike Langford and Jackie Ranken, both well known New Zealand photographers, for a ten-day photographic tour. The trip was exceptional. We visited Tokyo, Kyoto, Takayama, and Yudanaka. The highlight for me was the Wild Snow Monkeys at Jigokudani Yaen-Koen Park in Yudanaka. We were very lucky to have snow falling while we photographing.
In 2015 I visited this beautiful country with Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt and Christian Fletcher, three top international respected landscape photographers. We spent 10 days travelling around this very interesting country.
Northland is my home. I live on our dairy farm in Purua which is west of Whangarei, the main city in the region. It is a beautiful part of New Zealand.
Africa is a fascinating country. My husband and I have visited this beautiful land three times We have spent time in Namibia, South Africa and Uganda.
