HI! My name is Robin and I'm in love with my camera. A few years ago I was working in Tasmania and was following an Aurora FB group when an announcement popped up that the Auroroa Australis was expected in clear skies that very night. Already frustrated with the capabilities of my iPhone, a work colleague suggested the Sony A7, so the very day that FB announced an aurora that night, I walked into the camera store, asked for a mid-priced, user friendly "big girl ' camera with a quality lens and walked out with the Sony A7 and the Sony f4 16-35mm.

I rushed home and devoured the guide book so I could shoot that night. I literally knew nothing, and there I was, planning to shoot in manual mode. Later that night, I set up my gear, pointed due south and when those first aurora photos came through the back screen with their purples and greens I may have squealed. Very Loudly. I was totally and utterly hooked and I've never looked back.

Anything outdoors in the soft light of dawn or starry skies, or in the wilderness, fills me with such joy. I feel like I am actively engaging in the environment instead of just passing through it. Sydney harbour is my home and it's there under the bridge at Kirribilli that I will do sunset and blue hour workshops to show you how you can make magic with your camera too.

If you're a complete beginner, or you just want to learn how to shoot sunsets or long exposure come join me . I didn't pick up my camera until well into my 50s, so I understand both the pleasure and the pain learning a new skill can be. Sony is the perfect user friendly brand to learn on.

What is in your camera bag?

2 x A7RII, 1 x A7SII, 1 x Sony A6000 infrared converted, 1 x Sony A7, 12-24 mm F4 G, 16-35mm f4 Zeiss. 55mm F1.8 Zeiss. 90mm G macro. 100-400mm f5.6 GM. 24-70 2.8 GM.

What is your go to in your Alpha kit and why?

My A7R II and the 24-70 GM. It shoots everything, fast and sharp.

Most memorable moment shooting with Alpha?

It's a toss between shooting the Norwegian arctic lynx with the 100-400mm, the humpback whales in Tonga with the 16-35mm, and filming the dancing 180 degree aurora with the A7SII.
