About Me

Hi.. !
Thank you for taking an interest in my photography.. I live at Reynella – and I am a female photographer southern suburbs, based South of Adelaide but I work all over Adelaide photographing Weddings, Events, Christenings, Sports Shoots, Commercial, Industrial and Family Photography – and most other photography. I have a passion for Photo Retouching including restoration of old photos. I learned photography back when we used chemical photo labs and dark rooms and I still have a couple of enlargers floating about at home.
Having worked in a number of fields including Administration, Sales and Customer Service – as well as predominantly working as a self employed Freelance Photographer, my skills are fairly varied. I like to pay attention to Ethics and Values in human interactions just as much as within business. Honesty is very important to me and you will find that this is also reflected in my prices And also in the time frame that I take to process your photographs (or video).
Photography is a huge passion of mine and I almost always have a camera with me. Whether it is out photographing a band on a Friday night or photographing the Onkaparinga Hills whilst on a Sunday afternoon walk. I am always working on private photographic projects, such as exhibitions or digitally manipulated art – photography is my relaxation interest as well main income. I have been working for Advanced Life Photography for the past 3 years as their Head Photographer in South Australia – doing family photography. I have met many SA Families during this time and it has been a very positive experience.
I took my first photo at age 9 using an old 35 mm film camera. I have many many thousands of photos and many albums from early childhood and althroughout my life. I studied photography at High School starting out in dark room technique and composition and set up my home dark room studio back in the early 1980s.
I like to use Canon Cameras and have owned many SLRs to date. The last few years I have been specialising in studio photography and studio lighting as opposed to Landscapes and Natural Lighting which was my main interest prior to the studio focus.
I photographed my first wedding back in 1989 and right from that moment I knew that I wanted to concentrate on that field. What I particularly enjoy about weddings is the atmosphere of LOVE and HAPPINESS. I try my best to help capture and promote the love between the couples and their families. Capturing the essence of people is what I most love about photography. As well as the interesting aspects of TIME and LIGHT.
I am open to liaising with my clients to ensure they are completely satisfied with my photography services. If you have an idea you want to do I am more than happy to listen to all your ideas and work with them to the best of my personality and ability.
I have studied Colour Photography Processing (Dark Room Technique) as well as also completing an Advanced Diploma in Advertising and Graphic Design at TAFE (3 years fulltime) and my focus was always composition and photography.
It has taken many years to reach a level of confidence with photography, especially with composition, which to me is the most important part.  Being tuned in to the moment and my subjects helps to ensure that I will be in the right place at the right time to catch the perfect moment! If you are looking for female photographer southern suburbs, or easy going photographer, or affordable photography I can definitely help you.  You are welcome to connect with me on facebook either personally or through my photography page.
