New Zealand New Zealand


My name is Lissa Reyden and I am from a little town in Auckland called Swanson, located near the stunning black sand beaches of the wild west coast. I have always loved being out on the water and feel that there is something so incredibly special about being out there it’s just fantastic. I feel very lucky being able to integrate my love for the ocean and sailing with photography. I have covered many sailing events in Auckland and throughout New Zealand as well as worked with a variety of marine businesses and manufactures doing commercial shoots. New Zealand is a great place for yachting and the scenery is breathtaking. I love heading out in inclement weather and capturing the atmosphere of the dark clouds, sheets of rain passing by and the chance of getting a perfect beam of sunlight breaking though the clouds. Being out on the water is my happy place and I love going out cruising and helping crew passages between NZ and the Pacific Islands, always bringing my camera of course. I am looking forward to the Americas Cup and all the excitement that comes with it here in Auckland in 2021.
