    Hi, I’m Helen Oakes a Photographer, Entrepreneur, Digital Artist, Blogger and Podcaster.

    I’ve been a professional photographer since 2007! It’s great being behind the camera but I love post-processing photos too, it’s where all the magic happens. I say Photography is one game and editing is another.

    I pride myself on my editing skills and I have created my own style using my custom made Lightroom Presets and Photoshop Textures. These are great tools for photographers, bloggers and graphic artists and are available from my store. My Etsy store also features inspirational quotes, landscapes and Kiwiana digital images for purchase.

    - All of my digital downloads are high resolution PDF files that can be upsized or downsized from the original PDF without loss of quality.

    - Your download will be a ZIP file with 8 PDF files.

    - PDF files are the best files for printing and do not lose quality like Jpegs do when compressed. PDF is the efficient and convenient format to use if you don't want to
    risk the quality of your image from the reduction of Jpeg file sizes. Unlike that of Jpeg, once you compress a PDF format, it won't alter or do any damage to the
    original quality of the file that you're trying to print or share.
