My Dad gave me my first camera when I was 12. It was an Agfamatic. Keen to take my first photos I took it to school, photographed all of my friends and learnt my first lesson when the slides arrived in the post. Most of my friends had their heads missing. Now I shoot with a Nikon D300 digital SLR and my friends keep their heads.

These days I prefer to capture images of the natural beauty surrounding us; from the natural landscape to the plants and animals that inhabit it. My most recent photographic addition is a Macro lens and it has introduced me to a whole new way to see the world. I love the different perspective that it gives and look forward to my continuing photographic education.

Bush Stone Curlew

I went to the Cleland Wildlife Park specifically to capture an image of a Tawny Frogmouth but the Curlew, that shared the walk-in aviary, had other ideas. He watched me for a moment before walking over and looking up at me. He kept this pose until I had changed my focus to him and taken a few shots. Then he calmly marched back to join his mate at the back of the aviary.

Black Cormorant

I love the detail captured in the feathers and around the eye of this bird.

Pelican

I think this guy was trying to keep out of the wind that was blowing on the day and I’m glad he was as he gave me the chance to get an image that is a little different from many of the pelican images I’ve seen.

Cactus

I love the colour and the repetition in this macro image. I took this in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens as part of a Macro photography course run By Tim Newbury. I’d never taken macro photos before and all I had was a 18-200mm lens, a set of extension tubes and an on-camera flash unit with a jury-rigged foil deflector.

Grevillea

After seeing the results of the Cactus flower macro I decided it was time to save for a macro lens and this shot is my favourite image taken on the day that I got my new lens.
