Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for visiting my website. Please return soon as I often add new images.

I discovered my love of photography very young.  I have always favoured Nikon equipment.  By the time I was in High School, I had the opportunity to navigate the darkroom, developing both Black and White negatives and Colour slide transparencies.   In my Senior year, I was delighted to win a Photography competition sponsored by Laguna Beach Festival of the Arts and Pageant of the Masters, and was rewarded with a scholarship for my efforts!  The shot of feet in thongs from the 70's, 80's,90's gallery is one those winning photos.

Decades later,  admittedly, I was a little slow to embrace the digital era.   My introduction into digital came in 2012 when I purchased a second hand Nikon  D300 body and 55-200mm lens.  July 2015,  I upgraded to a full frame Nikon D750.  The lenses in my kit are a Tamron 70-200mm, a Nikon  24-70-mm, and recently I added the new Tamron 150-600mm G2.  I also use both a Manfrotto  monopod and tripod for some of my 'birding excursions'.

In May of 2015, my one and only entry, 'Tiger in the rain' was selected as a semi finalist  in the world wide competition known as Macquarie Photography Prize based in Queensland Australia.  Sadly the website www.australianartsales.com.au  was hacked and the competition was never finalised.

30 July 2016, very excited to have my leopard photo chosen for the prestigious photo of the day competition run by Earthshots.org     (right)  1 March 2017, sadly this website has also been corrupted, so the thousands of winning images from the past decade, including my one submission, will no longer be accessible.  Luckily I posted the link on my Harmoni Photography Facebook page as a souvenir.

September 2017, the photo 'Care to Share' of two female Red Tailed Black Cockatoos sharing a berry from a Cape Lilac tree was a finalist in the Subiaco Annual Photo Competition.  

I hope you find my portfolio inspiring.   I love travelling to new places, though if I had to choose, I do favour wilderness over cities.
