Hi! I’m Kylie and, no matter how big or small, I love being a part of the defining moments in people’s lives.

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. Please take some time to have a look through the galleries on this website to see what I have captured. I would love to hear from you to talk about what I can do for you.

Kergunyah and Kergunyah South are rural localities on the Kiewa Valley Highway, about 30 km south-east of Wodonga in north-east Victoria.

In 1838 the Kergunyah pastoral run was taken up by three partners, occupying about 45 sq km west of the Kiewa River. Kergunyah and Kergunyah South lie within the eastern boundary of the former pastoral run. The name is thought to be derived from an Aboriginal word describing a camping ground. (The word gunyah is thought to describe a hut or shelter).

Following the farm selections at Kergunyah in the early 1870s a school was opened in 1873. The main farming activity was grazing and, later, dairying.
