I'm a Sydney based photographer specialising in Wildlife and Landscape photography. Along with my husband we own Wanderlust Imagery. My aim is help you discover how to competently photograph the natural world as you see it.

I've been kissed by a wolf in Norway, climbed inside a giant tortoise shell in the Galapagos, hiked a glacier into the Crystalline Ice Caves of Iceland, and climbed 5005 metres to sip tea with the locals under the shadows of Mt Chomolari in the Himalayas of Bhutan.

I've spent days photographing the adorable Atlantic Puffins on Skomer island in Wales and I've yelled out in sheer joy of the dancing Northern lights whilst stuck up to my waist in fresh snow in the Lofoten islands. I've fallen in love snorkelling with cheeky Humpback Whales in Tonga and played underwater tag with the Sealions of Kangaroo Island.

When at home it's nice to slow down and take long exposure sunrises on the beaches of Sydney, or spend weekends looking for the sociable stingrays with my underwater housing. Most recently I've chased the ferocious summer storms of Sydney with their shelf clouds and lightning; and stalked those super tiny super-fast Rainbow Bee-eaters on the far north coast of NSW.

If you're a complete beginner, or you just want to learn how to shoot long exposures; or you'd like the skills to capture moving animals or birds - come join me. I didn't pick up my camera until I was 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.

My workshops include learning how to composite through the powers of photoshop and I enjoy this genre as a way of story telling. Most workshops include Landscape, Wildlife and Drone photography in equal portions.

I've been shooting with Sony for a long time. I started with an Alpha 7, and last year bought the sensational Alpha 1.

I still use my Alpha 7R II as a second body for shooting below the water, and the Alpha 7R IV provides me with an excellent dynamic range for day and astro landscape photography The Alpha 1 allows a level of detail and crop that is unsurpassed on land and in the air.

What is in your camera bag?

I keep separate bags for Wildlife and Landscape/Astro and underwater

My wildlife bag has

Sony Alpha1  with the 100-400mm F5.6 GM, 24-70 2.8 GM, 200-600mm and 1.4 extender

I use the Alpha 7R II for underwater in waterproof housing.

I also have the Sony Rx100 in the Sony housing as a sensational  and portable combination.  

In my Landscape bag i keep the  Alpha 7R IV,12-24 mm F4 G, 16-35mm F4 Zeiss, 55mm F1.8 Zeiss, 90mm G, 

 

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

My Alpha 7R II and the 24-70 GM for underwater photography - it allows me speed and light.

My beloved Alpha a1 and the amazing 100-400mm for speed and detail.

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 Alpha 7S II.

Travelling west during Covid restrictions I was searching for Budgies. They are very skittish and hard to pin down. the 200-600GM allowed me to shoot from the car at a distance before they screeched off.
