Photography is the easiest medium of Art to be competent in but it's the hardest medium in which to have a truly personal vision. It's very much like talking: everyone can talk but very few have something to say. In creating my work I aim to demonstrate a clear style, to tell a story while being imaginative and thought-provoking.
My goal is to present work that is strong and distinguished with an original narrative sense. I wish to inspire people with timeless images that have enduring qualities, to be creative and artistic, to evoke emotions and to show a personal vision.
I am only as good as my last image so always aspiring to exceed my reputation of producing unique and quality photographs while providing outstanding value to my customers - Auckland wide. I am able to achieve this by focusing on customers’ real needs and delivering my best products and services. In pursuit of maintaining my reputation of directing a leading portraiture photography studio, I choose to treat business partners, customers and stakeholders with respect while listening to the market-place and creating a ‘Wow’ factor. I don't just take pictures - I create them.
How do I achieve that?
By pushing the boundaries and creating special rapport with my clients, by thinking outside the box to create truly inspiring images and engaging with everyone until there are sparks in the air! My commitment is to be innovative in creating images that evoke deep emotions - portraits with enduring quality. My dream is to make the world a better place. My humble contribution is to build your family legacy by creating beautiful portrait photos on your wall which will last a lifetime. My goal is simple: to leave a lasting impression with stunning images; to impress you with the best professional photography and bring joy to your home.

Ilan is very professional and the whole process ran very smoothly, from my initial telephone enquiry to the shooting session, the session to chose which images we wanted and collection of photos. Technical competence goes without saying, Ilan also has the gift of making the subjects feel at ease and imagination. We were very pleased and impressed with the photos he produced for us. More...

Working with Ilan was truly rewarding experience. I was looking for that special picture, the job wining profile shot for social networking sites. Ilan could sense my unease at having pictures taken but put me at ease with his great sense of humour and professionalism. The outcome, an awesome range of shots to choose from. My profile is changing up! Thanks Ilan. More...
Working with Ilan was a fantastic experience and I would gladly work with him again. A very polite, professional creative who puts people at ease to create beautiful works of art. Ilan is funny and humorous and was a pleasure to collaborate with on photography ideas. More...
Working with Ilan was an absolute pleasure! From the moment we started shooting to the very last minute he made me feel comfortable and gorgeous :) He did everything he could to make my ideas happen and bring my vision to life. Ilan is incredibly talented, creative and goes the extra mile for the perfect shot. Aftercare & delivery of the pictures was incredibly fast and the quality superb. I cannot recommend working with Ilan enough! More...
Ilan is an amazing photographer to work with! He is very open and honest and makes you feel at ease. He also has a great style of photography and directs you, as a model, very well, making it easy to get the shots needed. I had a great, fun, enjoyable day shooting with Ilan. He goes above and beyond, climbing up on top of a canon in the rain to try and get a great photo! Highly recommend him as a photographer, very professional and has a high standard. Also great "out the box" ideas!! A++++++ More...
Our chorus had the privilege of being photographed by Ilan Wittenberg at an event we were singing at. I loved how comfortable he made us all feel and his attention to detail in positioning us all just right was very impressive. He managed to capture us all beautifully! We were so pleased with the result that we're planning to use the image for promotional use and are hoping he will take some more photos of our group soon. A superb photographer who easily builds a great rapport with the people he is working with. More...
