Photography is my ‘passion’. I studied it in years 11 and 12, where I learned how to processes films in the dark room. Since then, my photography was restricted to digital compacts until I was able to afford an DSLR in 2010.

Until recently I had been doing a PhD in Agricultural Science at the University of Tasmania. I have recently decided that a career in science is not going to make me happy, so I am now studying graphic design.

    The lace top is a wonderful touch in this context and I love the translucency of the sleeve. All in all it’s a good shot

    Lots of tension in the component parts – a powerful image.
