I am very much a country girl at heart. I grew up on a farm in the central west of NSW. My parents, brother and sister-in-law still live on and run the family farm. I still love to visit the farm but now live in a city situated in the Central Tableland of NSW. I developed my love for photography from my parents. Both my parents enjoyed photography when they were younger. My father still enjoys playing with his camera and prints. My mother has moved on to her greater love of art in the form of sketches and painting. These days when visiting a new natural area, dad will take his camera and walk around the area looking for interesting locations. Mum tends to set up in a prime location near the car and sketches or draws an interesting aspect of the area.
My first camera, I purchased as a small child from birthday money. Although it was just a toy, it took surprisingly good black and white photographs. This developed my love for the camera and photography in general, inspiring my parents to buy me a SLR camera while still in high school. This was a very good serviceable camera.I have since migrated to the digital versions. More recently I have indulged my passion investing in professional grade equipment and turning my hobby into a business. I have completed a number of photographic courses, but most of my photographic education has been informal, learning through 40 years behind the camera.
I have a strong love for Nature, in particular the Australian Landscape and flora. I also enjoy travel within Australia, often teaming my two passions wandering the Australian bush with my camera and tripod. Primarily I seek to capture the impressive natural features of our environment, like waterfalls, rock formations, trees and forests, the open plains. I also like to work with native flora, therefore dabbling in some Marco photography.
I also enjoy photographing people, capturing natural and formal portraits of people of all ages. Documenting Events is another area I work in, including birthdays, engagements, weddings or most types of social occasions. I have been documenting family events for over 30 years.
