Chris Helliwell

Chris Helliwell is a photographer specialising in images of nature. He has always had an interest in wildlife and photography but it was not until recently that the two have combined.

Chris’s macro images show the detail and beauty of the insect world that people just walk past or don’t know exist. He likes to capture moments that people would normally not see and he spends many hours and sometimes even days studying his subjects and learning their behaviours before photographing them.

Chris is the current NZIPP Epson Nature Photographer of the year and has had his images published in NZ Geographic & D-Photo magazines.
