    About me..

    I remember the first time I held a camera, instinctively I felt connected with it, and it instantly became a form of self expression for me.

    Asian cultures believe the eyes are the windows to the soul. Whilst taking photos of people, I am focused on a capture of their essence, and the dynamics of their personalities.

    Interestingly, when I have the cameras viewfinder to my eye, I become disconnected to any danger that exists around me. I am in the moment, and in the quest for an emotive & magical shot. Its what I revel in.

    Without fear or trepidation I have hung out of helicopters, capturing some of mother natures truly amazing scenery.

    I have documented troubled places in the world: capturing religious and racial unrest, tanks & weaponry.

    I have walked freely, documenting the seedy side of Sydney life.

    I have traversed thick rainforest, alone in the Daintree (yescroc territory!)

    It is only when I am in the safety of my studio doing post production editing, that I sense the very real dangers, that Id exposed myself to .

    I am traditionally trained in photography, working in a darkroom developing my own film. Whilst the digital era is amazing and has introduced endless possibilities for the photographer working on a computer screen will never replace the romanticism of seeing my work come to life from a chemical bath in a darkroom.

    I started my photography business back in 1998, and opened my Studio in early 2000.

    My work has sustained me creatively, professionally, and financially since.

    I have won multiple awards for my photography and also for my business, and I am an Accredited Member of AIPP (Aust Institute of Professional Photographers).

    Testimonials Submitted by the photographer

    Michelle Bennett, Wideline Windows and Doors

    I wanted to thank you for your amazing work in shooting both our Powder-coating Facility and our client's Architectural house in Redhead. Not only were you an absolute delight to work with, but the images you captured were right on brief. I especially loved the mix of both creative and corporate shots which will be used for a variety of applications both now, and in to the future. I would not hesitate in recommending Essence mages to anyone!

    Ursula Benstead , Ursula Benstead Consulting

    Victoria took the time to talk to me about my needs. I could tell she had really thought about how to achieve the type of photos for my purposes during the shoot. Her warmth and friendliness and willingness to take the time and number of photos needed to guarantee results made my experience with Essence Images both enjoyable and rewarding. With other photographers, in the past, I always felt rushed and pressured and it showed in their results

    Fon & Danny Sullivan,

    WOW…we are absolutely blown away by the photos! You guys are amazing and we are ecstatic!!
