Astrid Erasmuson… Self Portrait!

Hi! My name is Astrid and I’m a photographer based in Christchurch, New Zealand.

I completed my degree in Photographic Design at Massey University (College of Desgin, Fine Arts & Music in Wellington) in 2004.

Since then I’ve worked in a photographic studio (taking photographs of everything from people to plants to food) and from 2011 on I have been photographing weddings & portraits professionally, as well as selling art photography prints at local markets and through galleries.

Check out my blog, or follow me on facebook, to keep up to date with what I’ve been photographing lately.

Between being very busy over the spring-through-autumn wedding season, working on my art photography over winter, and doing 3 days a week as a Graphic Designer, any spare time is precious. When I do get time off, I enjoy spending time with my Mr (aka Empty Vessel Sound Design): rock climbing; fishing; cooking, curing or preserving our amazing home-grown vegetables; or working on our classic cars (a 1970 VW Beetle & a 1976 Landrover).
