Individual and Family Photos
Based in the vibrant heart of Browns Bay’s Clyde street on Auckland’s North Shore, the studio of Firefly Photography specialises in well planned, perfectly lit and flawlessly executed studio and location portraiture.
Run by Rory Laubscher, an NZIPP qualified photographer and contributor to D-Photo magazine, Firefly Photography holds true to a belief in the beauty and sentimental value of professionally crafted photographic imagery and the importance of meticulous client care.
The creation of a beautiful portrait is not a generic process – every client is an individual, with different needs and different personalities. Beautiful imagery depends primarily on the rapport between subject and photographer, followed by the photographer’s creative and technical abilities.
Truly timeless images are created when both of these distinct elements come together perfectly.
As a client of Firefly Photography my philosophy is to provide you with outstanding customer service and images that exceed your expectations.

I emigrated to New Zealand from South Africa in 2007. A doctor by profession, I developed a passion for photography that has led me to a change of lifestyle and career.
I studied medicine through the South African National Defence Force, and after graduation was involved in various deployments which placed me in exotic and interesting places.I have been deployed with the UN in the Congo, spent time aboard the SAS Agulhas as ship’s doctor and also had the honour of providing medical assistance to Nelson Mandela on a short deployment.
Wherever I went, my camera went with me, and my love of photography as an expressive art form grew. I have a specific interest in photographic lighting, and in 2010 started teaching workshops on flash photography and off-camera flash techniques.
I am passionate about photography, and thrive on creating images that exceed my client’s expectations
