About Me

I have been involved in photography since the early 1990s. My primary education is in zoology so much of my inspiration for photography comes from nature. My zoological training led to many hours studying the intricate behaviours of animals and the environments within which they exist. This experience has taught me to quietly observe and photograph nature, capturing rare moments when an animal reveals a part of its character or when a landscape pulls back its curtain.

To further develop my skills in observation, I recently studied Miksang contemplative photography. This meditative art form has transformed my view of the natural world and enabled me to see it in its simplicity; at the same time it has encouraged me to take a more confident, gentle and meditative approach.

December 2012

Hi all,Hope you are all well. I am contacting you because this year (perhaps as usual) I have too much going on to organise this event.My suggestion and hope is that someone steps forward to take the lead and organise the event or we do our own little project.If someone is keen to join as a group leader then that can work too. Please let me know your thoughts,DamianSee More

Hi Damian, 

I got your message :). I think you meant to leave it for Tamara but I will make sure she sees it as she's a friend of mine. Next year sounds great. Please contact us and keep us in mind if you need any help with anything. ~Kelly
