Hi. I have just printed up a few more of my wall calendars, and am offering these for sale.
All photos are taken by me, are excellent quality, and all birds are named in a title below each of them, including their Maori names where applicable.
There are 14 photos all up, (ALL full page, apart from the final page being split into two), and also there is a cover photo. Dimensions are 21cm x 28 cm, this being the size of each half….continued below photos.
The cost is $25NZD plus postage/packaging. The shipment cost is $16 NZD to the UK and Europe. Please enquire for other countries which if closer is likely to be less.
If you are interested in making a purchase, please contact me at [email protected] Thank you.
My name is Raewyn Ireland and I am a New Zealander born and bred. I have been mad on photography since I was in my early teens, and for all of my life have worked with, loved, and cared for animals.
In recent years I have developed a natural affinity with birds. They are really special creatures, great subjects, and I have a deep respect for them as a result of interacting with them, and observing them while spending a lot of time with and around them photographing them. They make me laugh..at times feel a bit weepy, they make me gasp sometimes, and other times leave me totally wowed.
I have always been a country person, and for almost 5 years now have lived in Kerikeri, Bay of Islands in Northland, new Zealand, after living a lot further down the North Island previously. I love it here, and my home/property is only a paddock away from the Waitangi forest. I have many trees and shrubs my property and sometimes, at certain times of the year, it feels like I am living smack bang in the middle of a main bird super highway! I enjoy the variety of birdlife, and other wild life here, and feel very protective over them. I feel that I .. and others here, are living in THEIR environment, and enjoy sharing it with them (birds). I love seeing others' photography as well and respect great work, as I know how much patience and perseverance plus years of commitment is required to get those special shots. It's all learning and its enjoyable time spent working with these creatures as I do my best to capture them as they truly are.
