Vivienne Haldane is a freelance photographer and writer based in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. She is a regular contributor to a wide variety of national magazines and particularly enjoys writing travel features. This ex Waiheke Islander (pre influx) and ex Aucklander (pre property boom) briefly lived in China before deciding she'd by-pass Auckland and head back to her home town (some places stay the same) in 2002. Then realising a photography career in a small town may be an impractical challenge, added writing to her portfolio and has been tapping away ever since. Motto: 'Never say never.' Favourite time: Goodbye Waipuk we're hitting the road!
