April Ward is a professional photographer based in Bassendean, Western Australia
April Ward has been obsessed with the art of photography since being gifted her father's Minolta 101B as a teenager. Her early career was forged in the ultra-competitive world of Sydney's advertising industry while living in King's Cross; an area that shaped her passion for watching and photographing 'interesting' people going about their daily lives. The professional experience gained in studios and on location throughout Australia's biggest and busiest city, motivated her interest in motion pictures. While undertaking a degree in Film and Television, April engrossed herself in stills photography on the sets of some outstanding Australian short films, while honing her cinematography skills, which culminated in winning the Lemac Award for Best Cinematography at the 2002 West Awards Screen Awards for her own short film, 'Sightless'. But it was April's love for the still lens that ultimately won out and is the focus of her creativity. Her style is an interesting meld of pictorialism and documentary, which shines through in her portraiture, landscapes and self-assigned experimental work. She has been part of a group exhibition with the LPA in London, has been awarded numerous commendations internationally View More...
