Kiwi family at Oreti Beach, Invercargill 30's & 8yr old boy & 2yr old girl

Sometimes, it takes the eyes of someone from another country to highlight just what makes us Kiwi different from the rest of the world…

Originally from Japan, Miz fell in love with New Zealand more than 20 years ago and chose to settle down and raise his family in Queenstown.

Miz first started out in film and TVC line production – mainly for Japanese clients – and then nurtured his interest in photography into a full-time career, focusing on travel, people and lifestyle images.

Often out riding his motorbike, Miz never travels without his camera. Over the years, he has captured many unique scenes of New Zealand, New Zealanders and visitors, with his work appearing in many notable campaigns for New Zealand and International clients.
