Photographer Mount Beauty

Photograph by Christopher Ian M. Photog. (AIPP)

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.

Mount Beauty is located in Victoria’s high country, at the southern end of the picturesque Kiewa Valley and at the base of the state’s highest mountain, Mount Bogong. It is located 31 kilometres west of the popular holiday town of Bright and is separated from the small community of Tawonga South by the Kiewa River.

There are two primary access routes into Mount Beauty. The route south along the Kiewa Valley Highway from Wodonga roughly follows the path of the Kiewa River through a rich and fertile valley, offering a number of scenic viewing points including the Mount Bogong lookout, just south of Tawonga. Alternatively, access via the Tawonga Road from Bright allows travellers to cross from the Ovens Valley to the Kiewa Valley and enjoy stunning lookouts along the way at Tawonga Gap and at Sullivans Lookout.

Mount Beauty was originally established in the 1940s as a base for workers on the Kiewa Hydro-Electric Scheme. Since then it has developed into a popular tourist town, located 30 kilometres from the major ski resort of Falls Creek and a scenic drive away from Alpine attractions such as Mount Buffalo and Mount Hotham.
