A little of my journey...
When I was a somewhat reclusive teenager, a twenty six year old Nikon FG20 became my close friend. It followed me most places slung on my side ready to be my tool for capturing moments that were important to me. Those first years of finishing High School bring such happy memories and fill multiple albums on my book shelf and boxes of negatives.
My documentary style was cemented in those early days, being immersed in subjects rather than posing them. Perhaps that was motivated by shyness but I like to think it was also an observational eye ;)
So why do I do this?
My aim in photography is to capture life. I want my images to represent people’s stories, experiences, and views in a way that brings meaning to the everyday and value to every life. I have big dreams to marry my roles of Social Worker and Photographer to play a role in exploring who we are as people and ultimately using photography as an agent for social change and healing. This is just the beginning of my ambitious journey that I would love anyone to be a part of.
I am always interested in working with community and non-profit organisations. Six years as a Social worker with refugees enriched my life immensely and I would love these connections to continue in order to story tell and advocate through Photography.
I have recently finished renovating part of a 100+ year old building to create my studio. It is a beautiful light filled space full of character, that lends itself to inspiring my creative side. I think it's a pretty cool place to hang out too! My studio is in Warragul, West Gippsland Victoria, but I have a love of travelling, so do not think of distance as a barrier, rather an exciting proposition!
All of me
All my moments without my camera are filled with my two little soul mates. They are my little champions and are the fuel that sparks me in all that I do. Life is certainly always busy as a single Mum running a business, but I am in love with what I do and the journey that I am on x
