BECOME A STRATEGIC PARTNER.

Being a number one ranked advertising and product photographer in New Zealand means every day we get numerous enquiries about a range of different photography services our customers need. While our expert in-house photographers deal with the majority of this there are often times where geographic location or photography discipline means our preference is to use a 3rd party strategic partner to complete this work. Our strategic partners benefit from us doing all the work to secure and on-board the client using our world class marketing agency and for ultimate consistency and ease of process we take care of all image editing and re-touching in-house so our partners don’t need to worry about that either.

We are currently looking for strategic partners with the following disciplines.

– Portrait Photography
– Onsite Commercial Photography
– Ghost Mannequin Photography
– Product Photography
– Modelling Photography
– Aerial Photography
– Vehicle Photography
– Studio Photography

our strategic partner process


  • Connector.

    We market and make agreement with the client.

    All pre and post sales communication happens directly between our staff and the client. We market to the client, organise the agreement do all administration including pricing, invoicing and obtaining payment.

  • Connector.

    you shoot awesome photos

    Depending on the type of shoot, we will either have our staff deliver product to you or organise you to go on-site at our clients to commence the photoshoot. You then shoot awesome photos in RAW format.

  • Connector.

    electronic transfer of images

    At this stage we manage all editing, retouching and delivery of images to the client. You simply use our internal system to transfer back the RAW files you shot on the day back to us.

  • Connector.

    get paid

    At this point, your job is done, sit back and wait for the next one. We pay above fair market rates for our strategic partners and the pricing is agreed before the shoot so there is nothing to worry about. We take care of all invoicing and post sales with the client so there is basically zero admin for you after the shoot is complete.

What you need to become a partner


  • Connector.

    Full Frame DSLR Equiptment

    It’s essential that our image quality guidelines are met so a minimum of this unless under special circumstances is a modern FX DSLR with a high end professional Lense. Internally we shoot nothing but Nikon FX or Hasselblad but have nothing against our Canon guys either.

  • Connector.

    Studio lighting

    Goes without saying that lighting is essential and even more important knowing how to use it. While our preference for most shoots is Profoto or Broncolor it’s worth talking to us about what equipment you have first to make sure you can consistently deliver at the levels we require.

  • Connector.

    diverse experience

    While our talent manager will pair you with jobs that match your level of experience, we still expect you to be a professional photographer with proven experience. This is not a graduate, intern or work experience program but rather an opportunity for other professional photographers to work with some of our awesome clients.

  • Connector.

    VDSL or Higher

    We are going to be transferring massive images files both ways and can’t wait days for uploads to happen so a fast internet connection is a must.

  • Connector.

    impeccable customer service

    It’s likely that at some point during our partnership you will need to engage one of our customers directly. Customer service is what our business is build around so an essential attribute.

  • Connector.

    to be approved with our NDA agreement

    Confidentiality and management of our client is a primary goal as part of this. You will need to read our strategic partner agreement, sign it and have a skype or phone interview with our talent manager as well as submit a suitable amount or profile or sample shots if asked as part of your application.
