Why do you like photography?
Photography is an outlet for me to express myself in a way that I can’t achieve with any of my other hobbies. Photography brings me peace (and occasionally frustration), but I love it for all the opportunities it has given me and the memories it has helped me preserve.
What encouraged you to be a part of the PA community?
Being relatively new to Sydney, and not knowing many people here, I searched for a way to meet like-minded people. When I eventually came across the Photographers Anonymous Instagram page, It was obvious how much fun everyone was having. From then, the decision to join was an easy one.

Which theme did you choose and why? What was your thought process behind the images?
I grew up in Tasmania surrounded by abundant natural beauty. Having lived in Sydney for only a few short years, I can now see how my photographic style has been shaped by the city. I chose nature as my theme as a way to apply what I’ve learned shooting shapes and shadows to something that I miss dearly, yet feel so out of my depth photographing.
Any advice to those who haven't joined a walk yet? What to expect?
It’s really simple. Come along to a meet-up and you won’t be a stranger for long. You’ll meet a group of easy-going, supportive people who’ll make you feel at home in an instant.
