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.

The regional city of Wangaratta is centrally located in the north-east of Victoria between Benalla and Wodonga on the main route from Melbourne to Sydney.

Wangaratta features a large commercial centre, primarily based along the attractive thoroughfare of Murphy Street and extending into adjacent Reid Street.

Wangaratta’s cultural precinct is located along Ford Street and Ovens Street and includes notable landmarks such as the towering Holy Trinity Anglican Cathedral (built between 1908 and 1909), St Patricks Church (construction commenced in 1865), the Wangaratta Art Gallery (former Presbyterian church which was built between 1898 and 1899), and the modern Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre.

Wangaratta boasts a number of attractive parks and gardens within the town centre. Enjoy walks along the Ovens River and through the delightful Apex Park, spend time in the central English-style King George V Gardens, or retreat to the tranquil sunken gardens of Merriwa Park which are surrounded by waterways and feature a lagoon, fernery and bush walking paths. For a swim, visit Sydney Beach which is accessible from the eastern end of Ovens Street, and is situated at a sandy bend near a weir on the Ovens River.
