Victoria Purdie

I've been taking photographs since the mid 1970's but really got into it in a serious way when I went Digital in 2003.

People started asking me to take their portraits, so I slowly developed a business from it whilst raising my family and working as a Freelance Writer from home.  Luckily writing and photography go hand in hand.

When we came to Australia in 2004 from New Zealand for work opportunities, I was able to update my camera gear and have recently purchased two L series canon lenses.  I’ve been a member of the APS since not long after arriving in Australia and a member of the Redlands Uniting Camera Club.

Three years ago I started doing wedding photography which I continue to love.  It is a lot of hard work but I enjoy pretty much every minute of it and enjoy designing beautiful wedding albums for couples.
I’ve had some success in entering competitions and exhibitions with my best effort being Champion Digital Image in the Redlands City Exhibition this year.  I’ve also sold lots of photos to magazines, websites, as prints, and stock libraries over the years. 

Our three children enjoy photography too and have had many first and second places in competitions both local and Australia wide.

I love working with Photoshop and trying new techniques to enhance my photos or turn an image into something completely different.

I enjoy photographing people, especially at weddings or special portrait sessions, pets and animals, landscapes, sunrises and sunsets, flowers, in the Outback, around beaches and have discovered joy in photographing cities at night with long exposure techniques.

In July 2008 I applied for my Licentiate qualification in Weddings, Portraits, Commercial and Landscapes with the World Institute of Photographic Masters and was successful in all categories.

I'm the webmaster of the Photography Society of Queensland's website, and have joined the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers as a Full Member.
