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.

  • Thank you Joak. It is a very sweet creature indeed. I did not resuce it, but got to be introduced as a loady at the university brings in small animals when she is looking after them . The last one was a baby wombat!

  • Oh, I definitely see what you mean. Not only is it a cat, but the look in its eye suggests that prey has been spotted! haha. Lovely photo :)
