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.

Porepunkah is a laidback village 6km from Bright on the Great Alpine Road. Built around the junction of the Buckland and Ovens Rivers, it is the nearest town to Mount Buffalo National Park which dominates the skyline to the south. Porepunkah is also the entry point for the beautiful Buckland Valley.

In summer when the rivers run slowly this is a favourite place for families offering a riverpool with lifeguards and a toddlers pool with safe areas to splash, swim, float in a tyre and launch a canoe as well as great BBQ facilities.

There are a number of excellent camping grounds and other styles of accommodation in and around Porepunkah as well as places to eat and drink.

Serving breakfast, coffee and snacks all day, the Rail Trail Café is a great place to stop and refresh on a Rail Trail ride. Porepunkah Roadhouse also has all your needs covered with an extensive takeaway menu or try the bistro at Porepunkah Hotel.

In winter Porepunkah is a great base to enjoy some tobogganing with the kids or trail walking and wildflowers during the warm months at Mount Buffalo. Ski gear and chains can be hired in Porepunkah.
