I have recently started mentoring people with disabilities in photography. I am very excited about being able to share my passion with these amazing young adults.
On Friday I went with one of my clients to pick up a camera for her. She has cerebral palsy and limited mobility. She also purchased a wireless shutter control and camera mount for her chair so she can move it herself and be able to press the shutter easily. Later that night she texted me to thank me and tell me she has been taken photos all afternoon. It was an amazing feeling receiving that text. I am so excited about working with her and my other clients.
I recently spent the weekend in Coffs Harbour at a photography conference with my camera club in Lismore. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many people that share the same passion as I do and of course being with my camera club friends. We have so much fun together.
It was a wonderful weekend and the guest speakers were very inspiring with years of experience. I learnt a lot and came away with new ways of looking at photography.
I feel photography is a world of its own and you are always experimenting and learning new things.
Here are the links of the guest speakers:
Thank you to everyone that came last night. It was a great and memorable night.

I have recently signed a contract with the C Gallery in Brisbane. I am very excited about this, and thoroughly enjoyed meeting Troy, the curator of the gallery, and I am looking forward to working with him in the future.
I have a few pieces already hanging in the gallery so if you are in the Valley in Brisbane be sure to drop in and see them. There are many talented artists that exhibit there.
The C Gallery is at 1000 Anne St, Fortitude Valley (http://cgallery.com.au).
