Wamboin, NSW

When the builder is childlike in his excitement for this new build, you know the passion is not lost in life.  The fact that this commissioned build was strategically built into the side of a hill.. perched high but built down into the side of the land.. with two wings that overlook the landscape.  The materials used are in keeping with the land and its surroundings... beautifully thought out and painstakingly built over time.  Again, an impressive build by Natura Homes.

Every time I photograph for these guys I know its a quality build.  Not only are they green aware in their builds, their attention to detail is on point.

In this new build the timber flows from the exterior right through to the main living.  There is an organic mix of timbers, polished concrete, volcanic stone... original art pieces in-built.  Beautiful.

New Build Curtin, ACT

I enjoy working with builders.  I like to see the process and the end result.  I like to see the unique and personal touches to each project.  Here is a new build I photographed for a build client in Curtin, ACT.

APPA

I am an Accredited Professional Photographer

An Accredited Professional Photographer a photographer, who doesn't just claim to be a "professional" but earns that title by successfully completing the rigorous AIPP accreditation process.

Accreditation is designed to give you, the consumer, confidence that your Professional Photographer is a proven, experienced, technically capable, professional practitioner, who complies with all legal business requirements, has appropriate insurance and who is willing to agree to the mandatory Code of Professional Practice and to the requirement to continually improve their photographic skills by committing to continue their professional development.

To become accredited, a Professional Photographer has to:

  1. Demonstrate that they have been practising for a minimum of 2 years.
  2. Demonstrate that they have satisfied clients and suppliers by providing written references.
  3. Demonstrate that they comply with all legal, ethical and moral business requirements to practice as a professional in Australia.
  4. Demonstrate that their photographic skills are of our required "Professional Standard".
  5. Agree to have a portfolio of their work, assessed by a panel of experienced AIPP image assessors.
  6. Achieve the required portfolio assessment standard.
  7. Agree to continue their professional development through the AIPP CPD program, maintaining up to date skills and business practices each year.

The AIPP continually monitors its ACCC certified accreditation requirements to ensure that the standard for accredited membership is appropriate for the profession of photography in 2017 and beyond.

Every year the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) holds its annual awards.... the State awards (ACT + NSW) and if you qualify (getting a certain amount of points in state) you can then go on to enter the National awards.  This year I entered both.  Here are some of the images. I came away with a couple of SLVER awards this year.

Brack Design

I have a varied working day which is nice.  I can photograph houses, people, events, concrete.... yes, this shoot was for a professional concreter who had won some awards and was getting published into a magazine.  In need of good photos to showcase some of his work he was referred to me. (which is always nice!) Thank you for all your referrals!

Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula VICTORIA

I was lucky enough to be referred for this property shoot in the Mornington. 

The owner of this house + land is advertising it for hire. targeted towards photographers and film makers who need a stunning location as a backdrop for advertising, commercials, photoshoots etc.

I discovered the Mornington Peninsula in 2012 when my little family travelled around Australia in an old caravan.  It quickly became one of my most favourite places to visit.  

I was excited to do this shoot because of its location and because the owner described her style as eclectic / rustic and somewhat bohemian... WOOOOOOO, yes thank you!

Please feel free to book me for your shoot if you are located anywhere in Australia / or abroad...

The Pearce House

When I walked into this house, I was immediately inspired to create! It is refreshing and pleasurable when I see an architectural property styled to enhance the organic feel of the space. 

Below are some emails from Tracey before and after our photoshoot.  Everything she told me prior to the shoot was exciting... I knew this was going to be 'my type' of property!

"Your online portfolio shows that you have an eye for detail, which our house requires (not just the standard run-of-the-mill real estate shots)." Client (Tracey SJ)

"Our house is a little unusual in that it is small but 'high end' (but not what you might expect).

"It is the former house of Australian contemporary artist Rosalie Gascoigne and her astronomer husband Charles Gascoigne.
It is in updated, but mostly original condition and is a Mid-Century Modern architectural design by Theo Bischoff, circa 1969.
It has a mix of painted (white) and unpainted brick and timber walls, and lots of glass sliding doors and clerestory windows too.
The house has a very warm feeling with lots of timber and unusual brown (raked) caneite ceilings. It has an internal courtyard and views from its elevated position facing north to Black Mountain across Woden Valley."

"It sits nestled very discreetly on a very large, rustic, bush clad block, and does not shout from the street. The surprise is inside and out the back!"  Client (Tracey SJ)

Thanks for your patience, understanding, flexibility and friendliness throughout our communications - and especially in person yesterday when you came to take the shots." 

"It was so lovely to meet with you and chat while you worked... "

One of the most important compliments I have ever received is the acknowledgement that there is the possibility that my images have created a sense, a feeling a personality even to a home which may save it from developers demolishing a piece of history in replacement of townhouses.

 "Your photos have helped with building that sense of its value - and hopefully, its preservation."

Client (Tracey SJ)

Food Photographer Canberra, Australia

Foodie.... well, I do like to eat it, style it, photograph it (not in that order)

On Saturday I took my youngest babe out... we hit the shops (actually we spent 4 hours in and around Fyshwick ACT) *postoffice *Canberra Outlet Centre (Freedom Furniture) * Sportsmans warehouse *Officeworks *Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets. 

I was fantastically surprised by my 9 year olds enthusiasm to product and food styling... perhaps it stems from all the youtube she watches? or that she has creative genes? or that she really likes spending my money on props and yummy treats (for the photos of course!)

Here are the results of our tiresome shopping (jokes, I love shopping!)

Rob Henry Architects | Photoshoot

I was on the scout for beautiful homes / spaces to photograph... for myself, my creative needs... for my business and for satisfying my goals.

Rob was kind enough to meet with me, listen to my ideas and offer me spaces to shoot.... one of them being 'The Box House'.

This beauty is set within a rural backdrop... designed with minimal impact on the environment,  built within a natural clearing on the property.  The box house is a two storey rectangular box form designed on a single longitudinal axis.  

Not only is the design outstanding, but the furnishings compliment, even enhance the home.  I really, really enjoyed shooting this space!

There is a story here... more than just four walls with styled furniture.

This is how I like to shoot, I get excited working with beautiful spaces and adding 'talent' to the images... creating movement, flow, personality.

2018 personal post

I have needed a moment. A moment for reflection, growth, a moment for self. 
I needed to redirect my energy from last year, change that energy and place it gently and peacefully into this new year... a year for hope and more moments of self. 
I will be present in my mind and listen to my body, I will take time to breathe, to swim and pray to mother nature. 
To feel gratitude and nurture my creative needs. 
I will be the woman of strength, love and passion for my babes.

This fun pic is of my youngest love.... embracing the peace that lays beneath.
