I have two passions in life, one is my love for young people and I earn a living as a youth worker and the second is my love of birds (particularly raptors). I live in Byron, which is perfect for bird observation and photography.
Until about five years ago I didnâ€™t even notice birds but after a very long-term relationship ended I began walking and â€˜waking upâ€™ to the beauty around me. Strangely birds kept tapping at my window, flying in front of my car and hovering over my head. They seemed to demand that I take notice of them.
I did some short courses in photography and web design, bought a new SLR digital camera and lens and began taking pretty terrible photos.
It has been a process of some years now and my great joy is found perched in a little creek in an estuary and photographing the Osprey or wandering around the wetlands and photographing the many birds there. I love it because it helps me chill out, Iâ€™m totally in the moment, it restores my soul, I learn so much by watching bird behaviors and I am always reminded that it is a beautiful world.
I built a website and so I can share all those gorgeous images with others. Iâ€™ve also become a lot more interested in the environment and how we protect it.
