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.

Wodonga is situated on the southern side of the Murray River on the main transport route between Melbourne and Sydney. Its larger “twin” city of Albury is located on the other side of the river in New South Wales.

Wodonga was founded in 1852, becoming an important river port for nearby Victorian goldfields, and the first bridge across the Murray River was built in 1860. In 1947, a migrant camp was established east of Wodonga at Bonegilla as part of the government’s post-war migration scheme. During its 24 years of operation, a total of 320,000 people from 31 different ethnic backgrounds were temporarily housed at this reception centre. Today, just one of the 24 accommodation blocks and administration buildings remain on this 130 hectare site, and an interpretive centre has been built onto it which provides a vivid insight into the life of new arrivals to Australia.

Wodonga has a large shopping precinct, primarily split between the Wodonga Plaza Shopping Centre on Elgin Boulevard and the shops along much of the length of High Street. Near the southern end of High Street is an attractive triangular park known as Woodland Grove which features a 33 metre high water tower (built in 1923), war memorial, sculptures, paved pathways and a cafe overlooking the lawns. High Street leads to a large 6-way roundabout with gardens in its centre, and then becomes the wide boulevard known as Beechworth Road with lawns and trees planted along its central strip.
