Hi, I am Joanne, I am happiest when I have my camera in my hand, capturing the world around me. I have enjoyed telling stories of everyday happenings and recording life's special moments with images, since receiving my first camera as a teenager.
I have always lived in the Woodside area, which is situated in the beautiful Adelaide Hills. This area features vineyard covered hills, patches of natural scrub, and gum tree studded paddocks with livestock grazing. I love to capture the four seasons, the clouds, and the weather that comes in over the Mt Lofty Ranges. All of these combined with the changing light, can create moments that are pure magic!
I love camping and exploring Australia. From the red dirt and blue sky of central Australia, to the fresh green tropical rain forests of North Queensland, and watching a super moon rise over a Boab tree in the Kimberley. These trips continue to provide so much inspiration.
My studies have been through Open Colleges, completing the 'Certificate in Digital Photography". In this I studied many different genres of photography and techniques. I specialise in photographing natural light portraiture, events (including weddings) and landscapes (including travel photography). I am professionally equipped including a Nikon D810 full frame camera which captures 36 mega pixel images. Excellent for big enlargements.
With portrait shoots I like to capture people in a place they feel comfortable and happy. A place that means something to that person. It can tell the story of who they are and what their interests are. Special possessions, pets or hobbies can be included. The portrait sessions are relaxed and fun so the true personality of the person can shine through.
I would love you to contact me to discuss your photography requirements, as every job is different. Then I can work with you, to create the unique personalised images you require, that you will treasure in the years ahead.
