Natalie’s love of photography was initially spurred by a life-long love of the great outdoors. Before becoming a full-time photographer, Natalie was an environmental scientist. She could be found knee deep in the Murray river, undertaking fauna surveys in the Alps and working with landholders to improve the biodiversity values on their properties.

Then, aged 21, Natalie went on a trip that changed her life. An environmental exchange program to California took her to new landscapes including Yosemite National Park where the famous photographer Ansel Adams once roamed. She was bitten by the travel bug and has since toured and photographed extensively within Australia and overseas. Her online gallery has attracted over 600,000 visits and she has exhibited in the Sony World Photography Organisation London, been a finalist in the International Macquarie Photography Prize and won the International Women’s Day photography competition.Natalie has developed a diverse portfolio of work – whether as a travel photographer, intrepidly photographing for a nude portrait shoot in Death Valley, Nevada in searing 50 degree heat, or on-stage photographing high-calibre musicians including Cold Chisel, Santana, Chris Isaak, John Mayer, Michael Franti, The Doobie Brothers, The Wailers and Bonnie Raitt.

This experience has equipped Natalie with razor sharp technical skills, the capacity to adapt quickly to the unique challenges of every filming environment and the ability to stay cool and positive under pressure.

I just checked into redbubble- (haven’t been very active for a while as I’ve been pretty busy with my photography business) so I was so surprised to see that my portfolio had over 100k views since March, bringing it 405,000 views. Wow! / I’ve got some exciting shoots coming up so I hope to show some of them off here soon! / Thanks for all your support, / Nat
