​What do I photograph and why? Well, I photograph pretty much anything that catches my eye, anything I find visually appealing because, in my book, beauty nourishes the soul, it is necessary for life. Looking at beautiful art makes me happy. It’s as simple as that. I really hope you find something here among my photos that makes you happy to look at.

    Great emotion, movement, a touch of confusion, perfect house for this shot.
    All works really and reminds me I need to get out there with my kids and run amok.
    You’ve made me all nostalgic now.

    they both have hold of the blanket, the hill’s hoist is making that noise only they can grind out.
    I love the girl’s hair, if it were a bigger pic, I would like to draw it, also her smile. This girl’s
    face is older than it should be for her age, it must be the harsh aussie sun.
    And I really love the fact that you can’t see the Hoist, and you don’t need to, your imagination dose that for you…

    p.s thanks for your loverly words on my drawings, you made my day, thanks.

    I was just looking at your portfolio Tiffany. You have some beautiful photos – I also liked your profile, agree with all of it. I particularly like this shot. It is spontaneous but has great composition and content and works brilliantly in black and white and as you say is quintessentially australian.
