My father was always a keen photographer and bought me my first Camera, a Pentax ME Super. It is an old manual wind on camera which I still have (but don’t use). I took that camera around Europe when I was 18. When I married my husband a year later, I came home with 36 roll’s of undeveloped film which he inevitably paid for in developing over the coming years as we didn’t have much money.
He upgraded my camera in 2001 to a Canon 500N. Still a film camera, but I was rationed with the number of roles I was allowed… well tried to ration. It wasn’t until our twin boys were born in 2006 that we finally bought my first digital camera. The Canon 400D. It is a great little camera and I still use it in my kit as a back up to the Canon 7D.
I studied part time at the Brisbane College of Photography and Art and have attended various independent studio lighting courses etc… because I believe you can never stop learning or experimenting… especially with photography.
I am from Sydney originally and my husband from Edinburgh – Scotland, but we have lived in some beautiful parts of the world in our 13 years of marriage: The Lake District – England, Brisbane – Australia, The Alsace – France and the 3 Frontiers (this is where I officially started BAC Photography) and now we are back in Brisbane while our boys settle into school.
I love to capture special moments, whether that be children playing, a beautiful landscape, animals or spring flowers. To me photographs are precious memories that last a lifetime.
