I am a 27 year old photography student (Diploma). Until recently, I was doing a PhD in Agricultural Science at the University of Tasmania, however I have decided that photography would make me happier than science in regards to a career.
Photography, music, environmental issues and travel are my main interests.
I have lived in Hobart for the majority of my life, excluding a 13 month trip overseas. In my travels I was lucky enough explore many parts of China and Europe. The highlights for me were Norway and England. I absolutely love traveling, including the exploration of Tasmania as it is full of so many breath taking places to visit.
I did photography in years 11 and 12, where I learned how to processes films in the dark room. Since I left college, my photography was restricted to digital compacts until I was able to afford an DSLR in 2010. Over the last two years I have been teaching myself both how to take photographs and how to process them using Photoshop. Whilst my work has improved, I still have a lot to learn before I will have reached the standard I am aiming for… :)
The types of photography that inspire me the most both nature related and that of abandoned buildings, such as asylums. I love macro photography of plants and textures, which reveal them in ways that the eye usually does not comprehend. I also enjoy how compositions of objects at close range can give an object an entirely new form, and create a piece of art. On the other end of the spectrum, I also love wide angle photography. The ability to fit so much detail in one photograph really appeals to me in terms of capturing landscapes. I find Red Bubble to be so exciting because there are so many groups dedicated to specific photographic interests. I am also very keen to be inspired by the work of other photographers and learn from their work.
