Important Notice

I have now relocated to Dublin, Ireland, and I am therefore no longer able to provide photography services in New Zealand. This website has not yet been updated to reflect this change.

Many thanks to all my clients in New Zealand over the past 4 years, and I apologise for any inconvenience caused!

Welcome to Luke’s Photography

I’m Luke, and I’ve been taking photos since I was a preschooler. From landscapes to portraits, birthdays to graduations, sports events to selfies, I’ve conquered them all. If you’re looking for an experienced photographer to cover an event or capture a moment, look no further!

Event photography is my speciality: I’ve taken tens of thousands of photos at 21st parties, conferences, balls and other events, at dozens of venues across Dunedin and Wellington. Head to my gallery or check out my Facebook page for some examples of my work.

My experience includes:

• Event photography (indoor and outdoor)

• Graduation/Admission photos

• Sports photography

• Portraits (individual and family)

• Architecture/real estate photography

• Award-winning landscapes

• Media/red carpet coverage

Who is Luke?

I am Luke Preston-Marshall, formerly a student at Otago University in Dunedin, New Zealand. I was born and raised in East Christchurch (“East” included for the sake of street cred), and then Twizel, the metropolitan centre of the South Island.* I now live and work in Wellington.

*EDIT: Turns out Twizel is in fact just the geographical centre of the South Island.

Note: I started my photography career in Dunedin under the trading name "Big Luke". While no actual reduction in size has occured (I’m still two metres tall – thanks for asking), I am now just Luke.

I'm no longer in Dunedin!

Until December 2017 I was based in Dunedin, but I have now moved permanently to Wellington. If you're after an event photographer in Dunedin, I hightly recommend Gravity Events. Click here to visit their website, or email Dave at
