A photo of a blue banded bee I took led me to a path of discovery. I began researching to find out what kind of bee it was. I've actually learnt lots of things since that day and can now name almost every bird in this region and identify it by its call too. Apart from improving my skills in photography and learning more about my camera, lighting, settings, etc, I've learnt so much more about the environment in which I live. I've explored it more and walked and driven to many places simply for the pleasure of photographing it and get excited when I've discovered a 'new' bird or something I'd not seen before.
Photography has allowed me to capture a moment in time and then explore it in its greatest detail on my computer. It's allowed me to bring home a piece of what I've seen and experienced when out and about in this beautiful country of ours - and other countries when I go travelling. Photography isn't just about taking photos, it's about building experiences and reliving those experiences over and again.
Today my photography focuses on the things of nature, wildlife, birdlife, landscapes, etc but I also do occasional sporting events including rugby, football, horse events and MTB (Mountain Biking) races. The latter because my husband is a mountain biker and participates in races and rides at Lysterfield Lake Park regularly. I enjoy the challenge of fast-paced action photography.
I am looking for opportunities to photograph for gardening and travel or tourist magazines that cover the Dandenong Ranges/Yarra Valley regions and beyond.

Testimonials Submitted by the photographer
Kathie is an amazing photography. She exhibits incredible patience to get the right shot. Her creativity knows no bounds, and she can be dramatic or subtle - depending on the subject. I highly recommend Kathie in any capacity!
I have known Kathie for many years and she has a habit of working hard and succeeding in whatever she puts her hand to. Firstly, as Australia's leading Virtual Assistant, as an author of Worth More Than Rubies and now as a photographer. Her photography beautifully captures the essence of the Dandenongs and the wildlife that exist in the region. Her passion and pursuit of excellence are once again shining through.
As an artist of Australiana, I often depend on good photos of Australian wildlife for my silk painting. Not only does Kathie provide brilliant photos, but her ability to capture the strength of colour and indeed the idiosyncacies of the various wild life, is something special.
