About

About me:

 

I first began my journey in photography when l left school with my Minolta film camera, back then I was actively photographing Birds.  In 2015 a clearer understanding; an epiphany you might say brought me back to Photography the photographic journey is very familiar and one which has grown over the years.  As a natural light Photographer l photograph Birdlife, Landscapes, Flowers and Clouds.

As a creative outlet during Lockdowns l found my-self exploring Photography course online with course completion through the Photography Institute, Sydney in 2021 – 2022.

My images are from in and around Northeast Victoria.

I also enjoy sharing my work with the wider audience and trust they find them pleasing to the eye.

Outside of what l have learnt along the way l consider myself to be self-taught as my focus is to get as much right in the camera, so that l present to the viewer images that are not digitally manipulated, what l see through the lens is what is shown.
