A beautiful day for a picnic #4 by 

Werribee Mansion is a beautifully restored heritage building. As with many Victorian Government Heritage sites, they have strict tight rules about photography to the point where I had to ask permission via email a few days earlier. I am very grateful that they accepted me as a student of photography and allowed me to shoot without the exorbitant costs that a professional photographer must pay.

This shoot was completed entirely with my 50mm f1.4 lense (attached to my Nikon D700) as I found my 24-70mm was distorting the building too much at the beginning of the shoot. I enjoyed the challenge of sticking to single lense throughout.

My interest in photography began back in high-school when I used my mother’s Olympus OM-1 to shoot sports events. I learnt to understand film, light meters and other technical issues. I bought my first SLR, a Nikon F70, when I finished uni and became more focussed on shooting portraiture, landscape and photojournalism. Since then I have not looked back opening my own business in 2009 specialising in portrait photography.
