Hi! I’m Kylie and, no matter how big or small, I love being a part of the defining moments in people’s lives. Whether it’s that look on his face when he sees his bride walking down the aisle, a stolen glance or a tear on a proud father’s cheek, I have always felt that mix of emotion is a magical thing to witness.
I don’t know what it was that drew me to photography, but from 11-years-old I have loved it. Then, when I was 15, my dad gave me an Olympus OM-10 and ever since I have always had a camera with me. I loved the technical brilliance of Ansel Adams and always wished I could photograph like him. I also loved David Moore for his documentation of the Australian way of life and Richard Avedon for his gorgeous fashion photography.
This passion lead me to study a Bachelor of Photography from Charles Sturt University, graduating in 2001 before building a wealth of experience as a staff photographer at various news organisations. This included 11 years at the Fairfax owned publication The Border Mail. I have had work regularly published in The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Financial Review, The Courier-Mail, and several magazines.
These days I have been enjoying the creative freedom in running my own show and documenting those special moments in peoples lives.
