The collection of an eclectic photographer.

I was given a Kodak Brownie camera when I was 8 years old and haven’t stopped taking photos since.  I am so fortunate to have grown up in a family of photographers who valued photography.  With a series of cameras over the following years, I have amassed a wonderful pictorial documentary of my own and my family’s life.

2000 onwards

In 2002 I bought my first digital camera, a little Nikon Coolpix and my brother David gave me a program to ‘play’ with.  It was called Photoshop.  The rest is history.

I experimented, learned and made a lot of mistakes.  In 2005 I joined an online photo site called ADPOTD where my photographic education really began.  I had thought I was a pretty hot photographer but I soon came crashing down to earth with a thud. I absorbed all the feedback and feasted on the wonderful photography there.  My next turning point was joining  Geelong Camera Club in 2009.  I love my club,  its camaraderie is priceless.

During the years up to 2011 I travelled extensively overseas visiting more than 25 countries and experienced the revelation and joy of travel photography.

From 2011 I have concentrated on my photographic and Photoshop skills.  I have not settled on any particular genre of photography but I must confess that Altered Reality and compiled imagery is what I enjoy the most.

Discovering Australia with my husband, Bob and our Westie Audrey, in our caravan, is my chosen travel experience now.

Digital cameras  

I started off with that little Nikon Coolpix and went through a progression of Nikons, getting bigger with each upgrade.  In 2013 I bought my first Olympus mirrorless camera, attracted by its clear, sharp images and fabulous lenses.  Several Olympus models later I discovered the amazing Fujifilm digital cameras. My first, the X 100T, fixed lens camera, remains to this day my favourite camera.  It is pocket-size and delivers the most beautiful image and just perfect for street photography.  I now have its big brother, the X-T3 with three lenses.  Over the years I have discovered that you don’t need a swag of lenses and equipment. Just use what you have to the max.

I hope you enjoy my website.  It is an eclectic collection, a bit like its eccentric creator.
