WHO IS EVE?
When I was little, I would spend a lot of time in the natural world with my Dad. Exploring magical gullies and farmland that stretched for acres. Traversing across rocks to catch fish at the beach and foraging for mushrooms, blackberries and pinecones in the lush New Zealand forests.
Mother nature has since been the beating heart of my creations, providing an abundance of inspiration - she is my muse (see video below).
I'm an empathetic person, which helps me to see and feel the things I need to.
It allows me to capture the delicate and the raw, the beautiful, the messy and everything in between.
I seek real friendship and connection with the people I work with. I get vulnerable with them, capture their story in that exact time and space, while providing a welcoming environment for that to happen.
So I continue to approach my work like I did when I was young. With fervour, curiosity, an open heart and a gentle spirit.
As much as I love filming weddings, I only take on a few per year! That’s because I work part time as a video producer at a strategic digital agency, as well as freeing up space for commercial videos.
I also like to make films for myself every now and then - one of which was awarded Best Documentary at the Peninsula Film Festival and screened at ACMI as part of the Environmental Film Festival Australia in 2018.
So yep, my life consists of heaps of filmmaking but I really love having a gift that I can share with others and that - I dunno, can one day help shape the world.
