Mike MacKinven

Art Director, Photographer, Crazy Cat Person

By day I'm a freelance Art Director – working in the Advertising Industry creating TV ads, print, web and direct mail creative. My skillset involves concepting, very high end retouching, artworking, photography and an all-round good fellow.

If you are after an experienced Art Director or Designer, please get in touch.

Outside of work, my passion is in shooting Landscapes and teaching Astrophotography which has lead me to win several International Awards.

2016 Photography Workshops

This year I have teamed up with Rina Thompson Photography to run workshops in the beautiful South Island. In these workshops, you'll learn how to use your camera to capture stunning New Zealand landscapes by day,
and amazing starscapes by night. Check out the gallery on the right!

Want to experience the very best of the West Coast? Check out our Epic 7 Night Workshop based in Fox Glacier! Heli-hike? Sure! Doors off Heli-Shooting? Why not! Stay a night near the top of a Glacier? Heck yes!
So many awesome adventures to be had on this trip, details below or get in touch for more!


If you don't think you can make any of these workshops, but interested in individual/small group workshops in Auckland or anywhere you want,
get in touch. Learn how to shoot Astro or Landscapes, and as an optional second module we can cover the editing side.
