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.

Wandiligong is a small historic village which lies 6 kilometres south of the Alpine holiday town of Bright.

Wandiligong was the site of a small gold rush during the mid-1850s which saw the town’s population climb to over 2,000. The whole town is now registered with the National Trust as a classified landscape and features historical buildings such as the Manchester Unity public hall (built in 1874), the general store, several churches and a number of quaint cottages.

The town itself is set in a picturesque valley surrounded by forests and mountain ranges. Morses Creek runs through Wandiligong and features a walking track which follows the course of the river, extending all the way to the town of Bright. Wandiligong’s gold history can be explored at “The Diggings” which is accessed via Centenary Avenue. “The Diggings” was the site of extensive mining and has been beautified with walking tracks and several footbridges across both Morses Creek and Growlers Creek. A highlight of the area is the Chinese Swing Bridge which is a tribute to the large number of Chinese who lived in the Wandiligong area during its gold rush days.
