Jackie Ranken is well known to photographers worldwide as an award-winning fine art photographer, international judge and lecturer. Born in Australia she is now based in Queenstown where she and her husband, Mike Langford, run the Queenstown Centre for Creative Photography.

Winner of both the Landscape and Travel categories at the 2017 Infocus Awards, Ranken firmly believes that you need to learn the craft of photography before you can truly express your creativity. Her own craft was learned through fifteen years working within the industry as a darkroom technician, commercial photographer, freelancer and photojournalist. She considers her “art” to be classic black-and-white landscape photography, where the “fine art print” is the most important end result of the photographic process.

Jackie’s many prestigious awards have culminated in her being named a Grand Master of both the Australian Institute of Professional Photography and the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, and a Canon Master. Despite her numerous awards, what matters most to Jackie is that she can express her creativity through her photography.
