Hello and welcome,
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist. I live near Daylesford in Central Victoria, Australia, with my husband, our Newfoundland/Lab Ralph, and Sushi, the lovely black and white kitten we rescued from the highway a while ago. According to one British journalist, Daylesford is “the funkiest small town in the world” … I’m not too sure about that, but the chocolate shop in town is definitely worth a visit!
I have been passionate about photography since I won my first camera, a Kodak Instamatic, in a drawing competition when I was 10 years old. That was replaced long ago and I’m now totally smitten with my DSLR, a Canon EOS 450D. I use an old favourite, my Panasonic Lumix FZ20, for quick shots, it was my first digital camera and I still love it.
My work is a composite of photography and digitally enhanced photographic art. My images tell a story of life in the natural world, looking in detail at the passing seasons, the ever changing colours and the perfect simplicity of nature.
I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the tools to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
My husband says that I live and breath art and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
Thank you for dropping by and I hope you enjoy my work … Chris ♥x
