I'm the director, and provide the leadership and vision of Duo Photography. I am passionate about clicking the camera, and enjoy teaching photography and helping new photographers grow.


My hobbies are my two sons, Max and Harrison; they keep me busy 24 hours of the day. I love capturing people in natural settings, especially when parents are having fun with their children. I also love the latest gadgets and the newest technology. Apart from taking photographs, I love Duo Photography because of the strong bond we have as a team fun and laughs are always a part of our day.

Mobile Photography Studio Manager

Lisa Budny

I'm usually the one on the other end when you call or email us. I manage all the payments, and do all the ordering and other 'office stuff' that keeps the office humming. I love spending time with my family and friends. I have two boys so they keep me on my toes at all times! I love renovations also. I love seeing the work that we do, and seeing families together and happy and capturing children having fun and enjoying themselves. It makes me want to get a new family portrait every month!

Home Office Studio Support Manager

Sarah Thomsom

I do "behind the scenes" accounting and photo work, and other miscellaneous "important" stuff! ’Im also in charge of Distribution, which means I get to see and provide quality control for the amazing images the photographers capture.


I have two boys Max and Harrison, who keep me really busy but also keep me laughing. They are great kids with great senses of humour.

Things I enjoy are having "family-time", going to the cinema, baking, going to yoga and shopping for bargains. If I manage to get a few quiet hours to myself I like to read.

I am the Manager for one of our Wellington mobile studios.  I am always happiest with the camera in my hand ready to capture those everlasting moments!I love the support you get as a team with Duo as we are always aiming high and encouraging each other to bring out the very best in our photographs.  Seeing the parents’ reactions to the photos is one of my favourite parts of my job.  When the parents can sum up the whole personality of their child in a single moment you have captured, it is really gratifying.In my spare time, I am usually taking more photographs of my own friends and family!  But I also love going for walks around Wellington, watching movies at the cinema, going on road trips with my mates and having a meal at a nice café or restaurant.Favourite Cartoon Character:  Homer Simpson
