From Woopi with Love
Thank you with all my heart to everyone who has trusted me with their 2018 memories. I have travelled up and down the Australian East coast this year, humbly capturing everything from weddings, to sweet little newborns, fun families and inspiring people with telling portraits. I’ve shot real estate, travel, and of course plenty of pictures of my family.
I was honoured to finish with third place in the Open Category of the Your Health Link National Photography Competition – even if I had to accept from afar via phone with no voice – and privileged to hang amongst many talented artists at the Woolgoolga Art Gallery as part of the year’s Lilli Pilli Art Awards.
I also want to say a HUGE thank you for supporting my very first venture into self publishing with my 2019 Woolgoolga After Dark calendar.
The calendar concept came about in 2017 when Renee, owner of the Bluebottles Store, and I thought Woolgoolga needed a fine art calendar that showed her beauty once the sun went down.
Astrophotography was not something I ever dreamed I’d do, so to have my physical images find their way into homes and offices, via the calendar, prints, canvases, postcards and framed art throughout Australia and across the globe in Thailand, South America, the UK, Italy, the US and Canada is incredibly humbling.
I have come a long way as a photographer since shooting this year’s calendar, so look forward to an even better 2020 version! The photo for January 2020 has already been laid out!!
Thank you, have a safe and happy holiday season, and much love always.
P.S. As a special thank you, I have gifted one of my early astro landscape images for you to download and print. It was taken during our first astrolandscape photography meet up here in Woolgoolga, when the moon was around 75% full and the soccer pitch lights were on full power! Nonetheless, in a single frame, I was able to capture not only an almost daylight like landscape, but a glimpse of the rising Milky Way.
