Hi, I'm Wendy,
Photography for me is about creating art on a digital file. It is the ethereal transference of what I see and feel on to a screen, then onto photographic paper.
I am spell bound and captivated by this experience. Actually obsessed is a better word. I have my home filled with black and white prints, coloured landscapes, and white snowy framed images.
Photography takes me to a world of which I have no words for.
I began developing my own black and white photographs back in the seventies. My style is minimal, often monochromatic and reflects our lonely planet in a simplistic but beautiful way.
I have a Nikon D800E and a Nikon D510 and I use Lightroom and Photoshop for my editing.
My home life.. I live in an old seventies, Spanish style home in South Australia. You know the type, old arches and white render, possibly the ugliest house on the street, but hey I am working on that! (In great haste.)
I have one husband and a few children and a few more grandchildren, a caravan, and all my camera gear. Our dream; to become one of those annoying road hogging grey nomads.
But for now I live like a local and photograph like a local. All my images are shot in either Australia or New Zealand.

WHAT I DO:
I blog regularly on photography, local travel destinations, good living, home style and spirituality.
I have written a number of adorable children's books illustrated using my own photographic images, which you can see and buy through my GALLERY.
The tools of the trade.
You have to seek out adventure, it wont just come to you. Look for great opportunities to photograph, anything, anywhere, anytime.
I dream of a home by the sea and a caravan for weekends. Camera and caravan go together like milk and honey!
It's OK to be a bit weird, people appreciate you much better if you are authentically you. Art is about creating something that YOU love.
If you see something amazing, STOP and take the shot, it will never be quite the same ever again.
If I'm not at home, I'm either on my bike or lost in a field.
I tell myself there is always something good ahead, just keep looking and keep walking.
