Professionally, life took me in other directions, until my early 30s, when I returned to uni to do a long overdue communications degree. I chose photography as an elective, just out of personal interest, and became completely obsessed with it all over again. From there I took a Diploma of Photography to formalise my already broad knowledge and skills.
After completing the Diploma of Photoimaging with Distinction, I started working at a local magazine as Photographer, but within the year I was headhunted to work as a teacher at my College. I taught Short Courses, Certificate courses and the Diploma of Photoimaging for 5 years, while building a photography practice on the side. Eventually, I struck out on my own, with my web design and photography business Photografica Creative and my photography teaching business, iTeachPhotographers.
These days, I am based at home where I work on websites and photo shoots, while listening to loud, old school, rock music! I also work from a professional photography studio in Maroochydore, Studio Level Eleven, where I do classes and studio based photography. I am available for both studio and on location work, by appointment.
