My name’s Madi. I’m a film photographer based in New Zealand, and I capture the urban landscape and explore how people relate to it.

I spent most of my early years travelling, from taking a motorbike over the Indian Himalayas, to backpacking through East Africa, to living in Spain, to being shipwrecked in the Bass Strait. But it wasn't until I settled here in Aotearoa and discovered film that I truly fell in love with photography, and found the biggest passion in my life.

I'm the creator of Bokeh, a portfolio platform for photographers, and I've previously founded a funded startup. My day job is working as a senior developer at General Studios, which helps me fund my camera and film addiction.

I also happen to be transgender, and photography gave me a way to express myself before I even was myself. I’m passionate about capturing the fleeting moments that pass us every day, and making our world feel a little more magical. I hope that comes through in my work.
