10:05 From Northland dairy farmer's wife to international wildlife photographerRobyn Preston

Robyn Preston has gone from being a Northland dairy farmer's wife to  an international wildlife photographer. She spent her childhood on a dairy farm near Dargavlle, later married a farmer and never travelled far from home right into adulthood - let alone leave the country. She says she was so timid that driving to Whangarei was too daunting...

But now aged 59 and with her children grown up - she's seeing the world through the lens of a camera. She spends several months each year in Africa taking pictures of wildlife, and selling her photos to an international agency.
