Grace Lye is a professional photographer based in North Melbourne, Victoria
I love clean, sharp, vibrant, colourful images with lots of emotion.
I am a co-founder and one of the principal photographers of Candy Box Photography.
I'm based in Melbourne but have traveled interstate and overseas to photograph for clients. I am an avid globe-trotter by nature ? one who loves to experience new countries, cities, people, cultures and food!
My photographic passion stems from the want to immortalise the excitement, the beauty, the events of the present for the future.
I've been brought up with an awesome and exciting past. I've been fortunate to have parents who took photos, which have helped me reminisce through my own journey through life. So, ever since I could afford a point and shoot camera, I've been taking photos. It's sometimes not about your equipment but about the eye you have to capture what is around you. However, I've shot with a DSLR since mid 2008.
I tend to like photographing people more than anything else because of the social interaction which creates dynamic captures.
I've always been a charismatic, people-person. I thrive on the ability to communicate my ideas and pulling out some sort of feeling that is then transferred into my photos.
?What is a quote you like in regards to photography??
?Photography, it remembers the little things long after you've forgotten them? ? Aaron Siskind
?What is one tip you would give a friend who is just starting to learn photography??
Learn, Practice, Share. There is a wealth of knowledge available at your fingertips with the internet. Practice what you learn. Share with others and you never know but they may have input and a new angle on what you have already learnt? and then the cycle begins again? Learn, Practice, Share!
?What would you say separates you from your competitors??
My personality ? no one else can be who I am to do what I do. I'm a social, bubbly person who gets people hyped up for the big smiles and happy vibes. I communicate my ideas well to produce the images I want to capture. People know that I put 110% in as I'm passionate about what I do.
?What is one piece of advice you would give to people who are looking to hire a photographer for themselves??
When hiring a photographer for a portrait, wedding or anything that deals with personal interaction, make sure you meet your photographer and feel a connection. The worst thing to have is someone who doesn't make you feel at ease or comfortable. It will show in the photos and you will remember it as a not so pleasant experience.
?What are your interests besides photography??
Some of my other loves are salsa, pool / snooker, poker, ten-pin bowling, painting, computer gaming, driving performance cars / bikes, travelling and eating! View More...
