"Kia ora, I am Jo Mohi."
Jo's love for photography started in her late teens, when she spent a lot of time in Raglan with her two best friends, surfing and shooting film. When she went on her big OE, Jo's little Olympus mju ii went everywhere with her, capturing new places and new faces across the US, Europe, Middle East and SE Asia. When she returned home, her passion for photography grew stronger. Jo decided to enrol in a course, and took a diploma in photography, which led onto completing a degree in creativity. Learning and creating alongside other emerging artists was invaluable for Jo.
Documentary-style images are Jo's specialty. "There is something truly magical about genuine and effortless moments - and they are wonderful to photograph," she says. No event is too big or small, and throughout the process, Jo will strive to exceed your expectations!
"I live for taking images that capture the essence of you and your event.
Love, happiness, hugs and laughter are my favourite moments to photograph!"
"When I was working with Jo, she was taking photos of a new range of clothes I had just completed. I hadn't made a collection before so I also hadn't worked with a photographer and didn't really know what I wanted! Jo made it very easy for me, worked very well with the model and knew just the right angles and lighting to make my outfits look their best. The majority of the pictures I got back are clean, crisp, clear, and well balanced which is just what I wanted for some good product shots, plus she got some brilliant attention-grabbing moody shots of a few of the more involved items. I really appreciated her help, support and quick responses the whole way through."
