About James Hancox Photographer

Get to know me a little :)

I want to help you tell your story in a way that truly reflects who you are.

Hi there! I'm James Hancox, a professional photographer based in the stunningly beautiful South Island of New Zealand.

I've been working as a photographer since 2009, and a it of a computer geek since birth. I love what I do. I get to meet amazing people, animals, and machines, and photograph them in some of the most stunning places in the world.

My passion is capturing people and their stories.


Have your moments made timeless!

With mobile studio-grade equipment and lighting, the world is my studio. Whether it's your back yard, or a remote beach, I'm able to travel anywhere to create beautiful images and videos of you and your loved ones, your business, or your event.

Shooting in digital medium format, capturing incredible detail and colour, allows me to produce images large enough for high resolution billboards and buildings.


For Charities

What I'm most proud of is my work with charities, as the Founder of "Photographers for Charity".

A donation-free operation, I volunteered my time and skills to help charities with visuals that could attract more donors and supporters, and also to help the terminally ill to create precious memories for the families they were leaving behind.

The message: Even if your wallet is light on paper, you might instead have time and skills to donate to those in need of a little help.


This work has been recognised by TVNZ OneNews in their "Good Sorts" segment (See below), and I was honoured to be nominated in the "Local Hero" category in the "New Zealander of the Year" awards.

I did what I could to help, and learned so much.

If you're a charity, or work with one, and could use some help getting your message out... Get in touch!
