From our entire global family at one2one Photography, we wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Well… one2one Photography is back in Wellington for good. John Stevenson-Galvin is heading up one2one Wellington as business owner for the region and the South Island. John first worked for one2one back in 2008 through to 2010, shooting weddings predominantly and commercial assignments. John began working with Steve and Ben again in the summer of 2013/2014 and then bought into everything one2one in July 2014.
So who is John? A creative genius, an award winning visual effects artist and has been working at Weta Digital since 2006. He has a passion for all aspects of media production, foremost his love for photography and capturing those special moments. John has worked on over 20 feature film projects, including James Cameron’s Avatar and Peter Jackson’s The hobbit. He bought his first digital SLR Camera in 2001, which begun his journey into the digital revolution. Steve photographed John’s wedding in 2011 as he loved the photo journalistic style of one2one and its business ethos.
Steve made me put the cheesy picture in below, the award was form the Visual Effects Society for Outstanding Digital Modeling on a Feature film, James Cameron’s Avatar. Click the following link to see complete filmography.
Just a quick update to say 4 days of solid content writing and image uploads is enough for now, I am going to crack on with your wedding editing now. The biggest job was sifting through all my past NZ images, wedding, portrait and commercial. I had not realised how much we had captured in just short of 5 years!
Thank you to all my patient wedding clients, this new website was just bad timing but it was a necessary change for the future.
Well… in late 2004 I built the old website from a Dreamweaver book, and then headed to New Zealand in early 2005 to start one2one Photography. The website has undergone one major overhaul but now I have to admit defeat and let it go, it was a bit old and programmed all wrong, the World had moved on, so RIP old website, but thank you for putting us on the map here in NZ.
On September 9th 2009 I photographed Rebekah and Graham’s wedding in Auckland. Before I left, I got chatting to this Canadian chap called Aaron. He had a camera in hand and we initially talked about photography. Then came my question to Aaron, “what do you do for a living’, to which he replied ‘I’m a web designer’. Cool I thought, we need help on a new website and so I arranged to go back-up the following week to Auckland and have lunch with Aaron.
I was a tad nervous because it was apparent Aaron had not agreed to help me until he viewed our work. It turns out that I had stumbled across probably one of the most skillful web designers in NZ.
Anyway, long story short, Aaron and I have been working on this new website project since early October, and here it is. I am still learning all this CSS stuff, and I have a lot of images still to add, but here’s what we have so far.
Ciao for now,
