Photography website launched!

My photography website

My photography website

Since returning to the UK after our amazing new zealand travel adventure I have decided to develop my own photography website. Regular followers of my blog will know I was lucky enough to visit some truly amazing places on our year away in New Zealand and having always loved taking photographs I decided now would be a good time to collect together my favourite images on my own website.

I have also been fortunate enough to visit other amazing destinations around the world including Australia, Iceland and the Cook islands and some photographs from these places feature too (along with a few from the UK). One of my favourite things to photograph, other than landscapes, is wildlife and my website also features some of the loveliest wildlife I have encountered on my travels.

So, take a look at Nicola Barnard Photography and see what you think! I have a Portfolio page with 6 portfolios containing a selection of my favourite images. There is also a Purchase page containing links to both my RedBubble store and my Photobox store where you can purchase various print and gift options, including 2014 calendars and iphone cases. Alternatively if you have any comments or feedback about my sites then please contact me through the Contact page on my site.

Thanks for taking a look and for the continued support!

I have included a mosaic below of just a few of my favourite images from my travels 🙂
