Janyne Fletcher feels proud and privileged to have the backdrop of Central Otago for inspiration. Janyne has been photographing professionally since 2006 and specialises in high-quality fine art photography which she prints, frames, and sells from her Ranfurly workshop and gallery. Janyne’s work is a creative and contemporary interpretation of the beautiful landscape that surrounds her and she captures its beauty to create unique pieces of art. Framed by her artistic instincts, she constructs a canvas of moments and memories—evocative, reflective, compelling. It’s more than simply documenting what she sees. It’s a candid imprint of thoughts and feelings.
Janyne has had a long connection with photography and she has been inspired to branch out from a traditional photography business to the area of creative fine art and landscape photography. Janyne established her gallery five years ago. This is a working gallery and an approachable but professional space that reflects her relaxed approach to life and living in Central Otago. Buying or not, Janyne likes to show customers artworks they might enjoy, creating the best possible experience and sharing the provenance of Central Otago.
Janyne was the winner of the 2019 NZIPP Landscape photographer of the Year, finalist for 2019 NZ Photographer of the Year, winner 2019 APPA international Photographer of the Year, two time Otago/Southland Regional Photographer of the Year, seven time NZIPP Iris Awards category finalist and a Grand Master of the NZIPP. In 2021 Janyne was the winner of the Creative Arts Category of the NZI NZ Rural Women Business Awards.
