Tom Newman OAM
I began my photographic hobby at the age of 12, developing and printing 120, 620 &35mm B&W, forever learning and refining the fascinating art of photography. Now at 78 I still continue with increased enjoyment using digital medium – and still learning.
My favourite places for photography are the Melbourne Zoo , the Healesville Sanctuary and the Werribee Open Range Zoo and the world’s best city Melbourne
