Few photographers understand the technical aspects of capturing a moment, and of printing a quality photograph.

Phototek, previously Graf Photography was founded back in 1993 by Shane Wenzlick. Shane, discovered his love of photography picking up a camera at 10 years old. Since then Shane's skills have developed rapidly, reaching a level of professional recognition. His distinct style and design have helped create a photographic eye like none other. Achieving a Certificate of Graduation in Professional Photography from the prestigious New York Institute of Photography assured the technical aspects of capturing the moment.

Shane's professional career started in press photography and moved to commercial and product photography. Customers have included such household names as Coca-Cola, Mainfreight, Owens International & Fairfax Media (Suburban Newspapers Auckland).

Awarded Photographer of the Year by New Zealand Football 2003, 2004 & 2007.

Whether Shane is covering a major sporting event, or shooting an informal portrait for an annual report, he always conducts himself in a professional manner.

We demand a high standard of technical excellence for publication and Shane provides exactly what we need - key shots that capture the pivotal moments of a match, delivered in crisp focus, with all the action in the frame.

Suburban Newspapers administers the Auckland bureau for the national Independent Newspapers Ltd news website Many of the assignments Shane works on are designated for use on the Stuff site, requiring even faster turn around of images and competence in web editing to have them posted promptly.
