Let us introduce ourselves; we are Simon Williams & Emma Nickels of Authentic As Ltd a locally owned and operated Photography company based in Dalefield, Queenstown. We are both Professional Photographers and have a background knowledge of education and the environment totalling twenty six years of experience. 

We decided that through using our skills with the camera we wanted to shape a company with both an organic sustainability and an authentic respect for nature in this part of New Zealand. We therefore decided that photography on location sharing the most beautiful points of interest this region has to offer was our goal. Whether that be for your Wedding or as part of your journey through this country or place we would like to document that time with our work. 

We divide or combine our time between Landscape & the Environment, Wedding & Portrait and the making of Fine Art prints, with Exhibition and sales around both New Zealand and directly through the collections on our website. We then use our contacts and community to enable Workshops focusing on wellness and youth as a social enterprise.  

We work with Nikon NZ specifically their #IAMNEWZEALAND project and The Outlook for Someday Trust. We also work alongside the specifications and behavioural guidelines of the Department for Conservation, Paradise Trust, Wakatipu Reforestation Trust and are in the process of undergoing Qualmark Verification. We have strict Health & Safety guidleines through eSafety NZ Ltd.

We travel by Landrover, we feel this is a very comfortable yet adventurous method, both holding our Passenger Endorsement licences.
