Rachel Roberts is an Astrophotographer from the South Island's West Coast of NZ
"I’m Rachel, from the beautiful West Coast of the South Island.
I’m a wife, new mum and B&B owner by day, and astrophotographer by night.

Being obsessed with the night sky since childhood and having a keen interest in photography, I decided to give astrophotography a go after being gifted my first DSLR from my legend of a husband.

Mesmerised by the images of NZ’s world class astrophotographers, but not having a clue how to use my fancy new camera, I would sit for hours researching techniques, learning the basic functions of it and spending countless nights under the stars in the pursuit of producing epic images such as theirs.


I love travelling and exploring new places and capturing the area by the light of night.
I focus on creating multi row panoramas to showcase the scale and beauty of the place I’m shooting, producing high resolution images.


From sleepless nights standing under the crispest, clearest skies on the planet soaking up the light from billions of distant suns, to the excitement of getting my images up on screen to process and make them come alive, I love everything about this genre of photography and look forward to sharing my knowledge with creative like minds."
