BEHIND THE LENS

 

Yep, that's me, holding onto my son for protection, with my other two children as we travel down a home made water slide - rapidly.

 

Hopefully you will find my sense of adventure and fun in this photo somewhere. I don't like to be the one in front of the lens, so usually I am captued like this - off gaurd.

 

It is hard to write about yourself. 

I grew up on the Central Coast NSW.

I love where I live. It is where people come for a holiday and wish they could stay. Beautiful beaches and coastlines. 

I always wanted to be a writer or a Journalist when I was growing up, and it was while I was studying Journalism at University, that I stumbled upon a deep love of photography.

Of course, back then ("in the olden days" my kids always say) there was no digital cameras,and it was all about being in the darkroom. 

Although film is where I found my love of photography, my passion for it was really ignited when I bought my first digital camera. 

I love capturing that miniscual moment in peoples lives where they feel those emotions of elation, confusion, realisation, sadness, fear, focus, happiness and all the ones in between, and freezing it so it is there forever as a memory. A bit like this photo I guess.
