Time has passed so quickly, but they are still […]

2017 awards in review

As a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP), I choose to regularly participate in industry related events in order to improve my skills. It costs a lot of money to maintain an annual membership and even more to enter events. The crazy thing is, I don’t win any money! So why do it you ask? Because these events push me to improve, which in turn, helps me deliver […]

{What’s in my bag} Noosa Photographer

So what’s in my bag you ask? What equipment do I use? Well…..to say I have a stack of amazing equipment would be a lie….reality is I use a small quiver of gear and for good reason too, for I believe less is more! I have one main camera body and three go to lenses that all produce amazing quality images. This very equipment has […]

{Rosella Jam} Handmade gifts

A lover of all all things handmade as well as gardening, the beginning of summer means its a time to harvest the last of my winter crops and begin making pickles and jams to give as gifts over the festive season.

{Fine Art Photography} What does it mean?

By definition it has no universally agreed meaning or definition: rather, it refers to an imprecise category of photographs, created in accordance with the creative vision of the camera person. Also known as “photographic art” or”artistic photography“, it is a form of creativity that ignites the fire within my belly! “Some pioneering photographers recognised straight away, that photographs, like paintings, are artificially constructed portrayals: they too had to be […]
