It would appear Orlando Bloom can add photographer to his CV - images taken by the Hobbit star of his wife, Miranda Kerr, while they were in Wellington have gone global.

Bloom has captured his 28-year-old model wife enjoying a sunny day on Miramar Peninsula while the couple were in New Zealand this year.

In a series of images a slim and relaxed-looking Kerr, who gave birth to a baby boy in January, is seen sitting on what looks like the edge of a wharf, standing in the middle of a coastal road and leaping across stones on the beach.

The pictures form part of a gallery of images on American company Rag & Bone's website.

They have also been picked up by international media and featured in publications around the world.

They were taken for the company which says its "favourite girls" were given a camera for a DIY project that involved "no stylist, no makeup, no lighting. Just a girl and her camera."

Kerr's portfolio includes 36 images, several of which were taken in Wellington and others which are believed to have been taken in a hotel.

It is believed some of the images were taken by Kerr's friend Lily Aldridge while the rest were taken by Bloom.

Bloom, Kerr and their son Flynn usually divide their time between Los Angeles and London but were reportedly seen house hunting in New Zealand in August. It was believed they were looking for a long-term base while Bloom films the two Hobbit movies here.

The couple were also seen at a Rugby World Cup match at North Harbour Stadium last month - with Kerr dressed in Australian colours.
