A recent of shoot of mine with a family from Whyalla. This is their youngest son & he was so much fun :) He really warmed up to the idea of being photographed & almost every shot I took of him, he was so comfortable & relaxed
shot on location at Mt Laura Homestead Museum, Whyalla, South Australia- they had so many alternate props just longing to be used!!
The main building in the Museum complex is Mt Laura Homestead. The building was constructed in 1922 as the homestead for a sheep station that was several miles from the township of Hummock Hill (now Whyalla). The front two rooms were constructed of local stone in 1934. By the early 1960’s, the urban areas of Whyalla had advanced upon the Homestead and the owners, the Nicolson family, sold a portion of their land to the City for further development. Finally, the City of Whyalla encircled the Homestead, and the building was handed over to the National Trust in 1967. The Homestead is now the home of an extensive pictorial record of the early years of the City’s development, and many items of memorabilia are also displayed. These range from everyday household items used by the earliest residents of Whyalla to the first BHP switchboard and a printing press from the Whyalla News.
