I started my personal photography journey three years ago in 2014 when I purchased my first DSLR camera, a Canon 70D. A few friends initially guided my learning so I could understand the fundamentals of photography, allowing me to have now progressed to manually controlling all aspects of the exposure.
I joined some social photography groups and local camera clubs as I really enjoyed going out and exploring Western Australia more, experiencing the landscape, wildlife and scenery of the state.
In April 2017 I was very honoured to be nominated and voted in as Rockingham Photography Club - Club President.
I have attended various training workshops run by some of the best professional photographers in WA and now find myself entering more photography competitions to continue challenging myself. In 2018 I completed training to become a WAPJA approved judge.
