My name is Beren Patterson and I’m Kiwi-British photographer, traveller, drone pilot, Dive Master and craft beer enthusiast. I was born in Bristol, England, but my parents wisely moved to New Zealand when I was 7.

At 15, my parents volunteered to do 9 months teaching in Himachal Pradesh, India. I went with them, supposedly to go to school to but shortly after my 16 birthday I was traveling across India by myself taking pictures. I came back to New Zealand to complete my schooling including a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Auckland.

I have now been lucky enough to spend 16 years in Asia, the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa photographing, travelling and working. The more I see the more I want to see; and the more I know I don’t know.
