New Zealand: Manja Wachsmuth

Manja Wachsmuth has spent the last 20 years in the professional photography industry shooting campaigns, packaging, and content, and running her own business in New Zealand for over a decade.

Danish-born Manja has established herself as an award-winning food and lifestyle photographer, working with agencies, publishers, lifestyle brands and top chefs.

Her Scandinavian heritage is reflected in the clean and simple style of her photography, which is evocative and beautifully lit, like the long summer nights and sharp winter days of her native Denmark.

Recent clients include American Express, Heineken, and NZ-local Lone Star and Barker’s of Geraldine. Manja was recently awarded Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year, New Zealand regional winner.

Manja brings a direct approach, clear vision and a strong sense of purpose to every shoot. Her goal is to create authentic images that are beautiful in their detail, and a vision for clients to market their product in authentic ways are at the forefront of every shoot.
