I’m a freelance writer and photographer and live on an isolated cattle property in central Queensland.  When I first moved her from Brisbane 12 years ago and decided to write news and feature stories for newspapers and magazines, I knew I’d have to supply photographs with most of my articles.  Not many publications would be prepared to fly in a photographer.  While I’ve been keen on photography since primary school, I didn’t have much experience or know a lot about photography.  But after some courses and a lot of trial and error, my photos began to improve and I have become ridiculously hooked – never going anywhere without a camera and always viewing the world around me through a lens.  I soon learned what editors wanted – right angles, good composition and focus, best light and each photo needed to tell a story. 

I’ve become so interested in photography – that writing often takes a back seat.  Because I live on a remote property, access to photography courses is difficult and apart from the occasional travel opportunity, often the subject matter limited.  But living in the bush has given me a little niche.  I can provide sought after images from the Outback and have access to all kinds of farming, grazing, livestock, wildlife, people in rural and remote areas and magnificent, changing landscapes.  So for now, I’m making the most of my location. 

I’ve had hundreds of photos published with and without articles and have won several photography competitions.  But hungry for more technical knowledge, varied subject matter and better equipment - I’m just beginning my fabulous journey in the world of photography.
